What’s good? What’s changed with published First Class fares? Mileage award tickets? And what are the workarounds?

Sure, lockdown took its toll on First Class with a lot of airlines closing those cabins. But now that travel’s back on the menu First Class cabins are making a comeback. While published fares and miles pricing are in flux, low-tier mileage award space is available to a number of regions at various times. For two people, look to American, Cathay Pacific, and Lufthansa. If you’re a solo traveler, add Emirates, Japan Airlines, and Singapore Airlines, to your list.
