MilesHusband Books $14,500 Luxury First Class Plane Ride For $15

How to earn frequent flyer miles without flying.

MilesHusband and I are just back from an incredible first class luxury airline experience.

We flew Etihad Airways First Class Apartments from New York’s JFK airport to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Forget everything you think you know about flying first class.

This one leg would’ve cost $14,500 per person.

We paid $15.

And 115,000 American AAdvantage miles.


For 30 bucks we laughed our way through luxury for 12 hours.

We’ve actually flown this plane once before and figured this would be so much more fun if we could bring our friends along.

So buckle up.

Here we go.

Some insider information:

We booked the Etihad flight using American AAdvantage miles.

Three best ways to earn American miles are:

Sign up for an American AAdvantage account to accrue your miles. This is free.

Sign up for credit cards that give you huge AAdvantage miles bonuses like the AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite MasterCard  for personal use and the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard if you have a business that has the potential to earn you even more miles.

Shop through the American AAdvantage portal for purchases you were going to make online anyway.

Start dreaming.

Dream big.

Check out all the airlines you can fly using American AAdvantage miles.
