Trip Report: Bali and Hong Kong (part 10) Cathay Pacific Business Class HKG-ORD

The way home.

We were sad to see our trip come to an end but at the same time we were ready to come back home. It was just the right amount of time away from home/work.  We took a cab to the MTR station and took the train back to the airport. We checked in and made our way back to the lounge.  We were traveling home on Cathay Pacific business class.   I had a quick lunch at The Wing lounge before boarding.

The flight was very smooth and we were well taken care of.  I am now a big fan of Cathay Pacific! This was a very comfortable way to travel and not possible for us without the AA miles we earned from our credit card sign up bonuses. Before you knew it we deplaned, zoomed through pre-check in less than 2 minutes and grabbed our bags. We had about a 30 minute wait outside for our shuttle bus back home and another 2 hour ride home!

So we were able to use our AAdvantage miles earned from the Citi cards I spoke about earlier (see here again for best offers). The flights cost 55,000 miles per person.

Ticketed receipt. Only $116 total cash outlay!

It was such a great journey and adventure for us both. Just 2 years ago I never thought a trip like this was in our cards or even possible.  Just imagine what miles and points can do for you and all the amazing places on earth you may have only dreamed of visiting. We feel very blessed and we are very appreciative of this amazing time!

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed the photos and commentary!! Let me know if you have any questions or if you have any feedback in the comments!! Thanks!!

  1. Hey, I came across your blog from million mile secrets. Was there a promotion for the AA points that the total was 55,000 points roundtrip?

    • Hi Rich, it was 55,000 miles one way in business class using AA miles per person. Sorry if there was any confusion there.

  2. Hey, no problem, that’d be quite the redemption if you could get round trip for 55,000 American miles. I’m going to Thailand next year and was going to do business class, but 1st is only12,500 more per way and opted for that. I’m looking forward to that Cathay experience!
