Emirates has devalued business class award flights by increasing the price. Some price increases:

  • JFK to MXP: 75k miles (was 62.5k)
  • SFO to MLE: 143k miles (was 125k)

Massive hassle to refund EK award tickets… I had to cancel a booking recently and the miles still have not come back weeks later.

Be sure to push hard for a supervisor. Was able to upgrade my wife on flight over to MXP, but flights back Italian agent had no idea and kept telling us there no seats. Finally I go to a supervisor to find out there were in fact 2 seats, that had just been snapped up. J seats were meh

I have a bad feeling that 2022 will be the year of devaluations. Everyone has so many points saved up and travel is quickly approaching historical norms

Considering their biz class is miles behind Qatar, these rates are absurd.

Agree, very underwhelming and bad customer service by desk agents, including not knowing how to upgrade with miles
