    Hey Lucky,

    I was wondering if this applies to me too -- you recently recommended using AA or Alaska miles for First Class on Cathay to get from Seattle to Singapore... would I have the same problem as David? Could you perhaps clarify redemption rules to other parts of Asia on Cathay?

    Also, you had mentioned AA or Alaska miles as possibilities; how about BA Avios? Would they not work for some reason or just a bad deal?

    @ Todd -- You'd be fine. Singapore is in Asia 2, which is the same region as Hong Kong, so the connection would be fine. BA Avios could work, but it's not a good deal. They'd charge more than double as many miles as American.
