    I’d appreciate any advice… LAX-Singapore then Hong Kong-LAX. Business/1st at least going there. I have 200k UR points. I’ve been looking for other options besides the UR site, but don’t know what I might be missing. There seem to always be tricks or back-door approaches but I don’t know how to find them except to spend days on research. I wouldn’t mind paying someone to give me the options, if you can recommend someone.
    Thanks!

    What's your home airport and where are you flying to? Maybe we can help here.

    So are you just looking for flights to try out business class seats? I'm trying to understand the goal here.

    JAL or Cathay using Alaska miles is usually a great deal. Lifemiles are also pretty easy to come by and their award pricing is pretty great, compared to United and Aeroplan. The latter is also pretty decent, though depending on the airline, there may be significant fuel surcharges. Lastly, Delta SkyMiles to Asia on a partner airline are a good value.

    Having flexible plans and being able to buy a separate positioning flight(s) is important
