    I received the double miles promo from Cathay (I believe it's targeted) good Feb 7-Apr 30. F, A (First Class), J, C, D, I (Business Class), Y, B, H, K, L, M and V (Economy Class) are eligible to earn Double Asia Miles. It seems like a nice promo and they have some decent rates during the dates.

    I'm not sure why I was targeted. I haven't flown them since late Oct. and I didn't make status with them last year so not sure if one of those is the reason. Tempting offer.

    Ooooh.. Gotta love double miles. I usually fly CX only on awards (in F :D ) but might go for some paid travel for double miles.

    Was the offer automatic? Was there a signup link? Any insight into whether anyone else might jump on the bandwagon?

    Got the promo too. Like OP, no status with MPC. That could be the reason for the targeted offer.

    Could be that they are targetting high revenue customers from cx or other airlines. I don't think most good airlines profit from 1ks and exps on mileage runs lol.

    That's the main point. You don't fly with them for a while and they want to "wake you up" and fly with them again. Happened to me before when I grounded for almost a year they send the double miles to any destination to me.

    Standard CRM Plan for me
