Some offer something reasonably unique (like Etihad's First Class suites), some offer fantastic service (like Cathay Pacific First Class) and some offer a pretty amazing all round experience (like Singapore Airlines Suites Class) but all of these are reasonably accessible to everyone as long as you can pull enough miles/points together for an award.
Air Canada has launched a promotion whereby Aeroplan members can earn up to triple bonus miles on flights on select routes. The actual number of bonus miles you can earn varies on the type of ticket that you purchase but even the lower fare types will earn at least 50% bonus miles.
