Following the tips learned at the Chicago seminar, I am planning a mileage run, and thinking of going to hong kong on Cathay business class over thanksgiving. Has anyone done CX business? If so, would love some advice on the following: 1. What exactly do I need to do on the AA website to ensure that I buy a ticket that will earn me EQMs? I have a reservation right now for a flight that has a AA flight number but says operated by CX. Is that good enough? 2. How many miles exactly will I earn? Gcmap says 15587, is gcmap accurate in terms of EQMs? 3. Do I need a visa for hong kong or is it just get on a flight and show up (of course will research this more, but looking for experiences) Anything else one can offer for my first international mileage run?
