Introduction: Asian Mis-Adventure

Early last year United Airlines announced that their award chart would be devalued on February 1, 2014, in which there would be an award chart for flights on United Airlines, and another award chart for flights on their Star Alliance partners.

I knew that I wanted to book flights prior to the evaluation since I was planning on flying on partner airlines rather than United Airlines itself.

In the end, I ended up booking a “free one way” from Toronto, Cananda to Los Angeles, with a six month stopover before continuing on to Asia.

I previously posted reports on my trip to Toronto.

I managed to book an Eva Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Taipei, before continuing on to Singapore.

The return flight was from Bangkok to Seoul, with a short layover before continuing onto Los Angeles on Asiana airlines.

The entire booking was 120,000 miles per person round trip in business class.

The trip report will also contain restaurant reviews and some of the things we did on the trip.

There were plenty of “mis-adventures” on this trip, including forgetting my watch at the Star Alliance Business Class Lounge at LAX, forgetting my daypack in Singapore, leaving money in the safe in Kowloon, and a lost credit card.
