    So this post is based on my trip from LAX-AKL and SYD-NRT and the quality of the NZ and QF premium economy looked very good.

    I was curious about the possibility of booking awards on it. Clearly I could do it in Airpoints and FF Points, but I was wondering if it was possible in any currencies that are easy for Americans to get ahold of.

    I also would add other "Good" PE seats maybe LH? would be interesting.

    AS allows PE redemptions. Very easy to get those if you fly AS or a partner (AA/DL), or churn the BofA credit card. They are not a UR/MR partner, however, so manufactured spend is a bit trickier.

    That being said, I recall a news article that says PE is Cathay's most profitable cabin (in terms of square footage/passenger/fare). So you might not find a lot of longhaul PE award space (though I have seen QF PE on the AS site).
