Cathay Pacific eliminates waitlists for standard award bookings

Earlier this year, Cathay Pacific eliminated two types of awards and brought its Miles Plus Cash option online allowing customers to pay for any available seat using a mix of Asia Miles and cash. Now, a little over 6 months later, Cathay Pacific has made a further change to its loyalty program by announcing that the ability to waitlist for a standard award is being removed with immediate effect.

Cathay Pacific Eliminates Two Award Types & Introduces A Miles Plus Cash Option

Cathay Pacific has started emailing out members of its Asia Miles program to let them know that two of the three award options they have grown accustomed to having are being eliminated and that the option to use Miles Plus Cash is being introduced and is being brought to the Cathay Pacific website.

Asia Miles Will No Longer Automatically Expire After 3 Years

Having a loyalty currency balance expire due to a lack of activity has been a frustrating aspect of the miles & points world for quite some time but there has long been a special place in hell reserved for loyalty programs that expire miles and points even if a member has been crediting flights or stays to their account on a frequent basis.
