    Anything over five hours in premium. I’m okay with coach on shorter trips in economy plus.

    Premium because when we fly we are going on holiday and like a little comfort. Typically these flights are over 3 hours which is kind of my threshold for cattle cars.

    Fewer trips in a premium cabin (assuming long haul international flights). 2 years ago I would have answered the opposite, but a trip to South Africa changed me forever. I’ll ride Y domestically, but otherwise I want to ride up front.

    I’ll bite.

    Economy over Prem. More trips = More places I can see while I am young and active. Once I’m older ( and hopefully make more money) I would take prem cabins and stay at places longer. For now since I am active … the more places I can see & experience the better.

    Looking at US -> Asia on United. its 7 Prem Cabin trips vs 12 Eco (if my math is right) … I’d take 12 over 7 easily.

    I would rather take fewer trips in premium cabins. I fly a ton of domestic mostly for work and all on domestic carriers (mostly UA) so a mileage redemption is a chance to not only see the world but to experience the vastly superior product offered by the international carriers. If I’m going to take a memorable trip on points utilizing those airlines, I want to make it count….and a long-haul in the pointy end of the plane certainly counts!!

    0. For several years, I’ve been earning far more miles/points than I’ve been burning.
    1. I (and my wife as well, when she comes along) don’t care for super short trips. A three day weekend is really the minimum I’m interested in, and for those, we’re typically talking domestic, and not too far away, so economy is certainly fine… and in most of those cases, I prefer to pay with cash, so the miles balance is not really an issue.
    2. I work a reasonably normal job with a reasonably normal schedule, so longer trips happen only a couple times per year. Given 0., I don’t mind splurging for at least business class, and occasionally first, if it seems like it might be really interesting. That said, the flight is only one part of the trip for me, so I’ll still take economy to a great destination over business to a totally dull one.

    More trips in coach. While getting there is part of the fun and it’s much more fun flying up front, the experiences I’d have seeing the whole world would outweigh the comforts of first.

    I have so many points that I can book far more premium awards each year than I can possibly fly. Booking coach awards wouldn’t let me fly anymore than I already do.

    More trips in economy if that means more trips. But splurge for premium especially for longer trips demanding a more restful flight.

    For now, more trips in economy rather than fewer in premium. More trips is more travel and more places to see. When I’m older and less, um, agile, I’d probably opt for extra comfort of premium cabins.

    I’ve been saving my miles in the past from the years I travelled e ten silvery while working. I want to enjoy now the pleasure of using my points in premium, as I can usually buy a ticket for a good price in economy if I want it.

  27. Kris Ziel
    Kris Ziel at |

    Fewer trips in premium cabins. I can pay for economy class tickets, I can’t reasonably pay for business/first tickets, so there is no reason to waste miles on a trip I could pay for with cash and forgo a far better value.

    It depends on the length of the trip and the airline. I’d take more trips on JetBlue. Even Spirit if I can get the big front seats. Or Copa with an exit row seat. I’m tall and don’t have unlimited vacation days so I take less long trips and save the miles to be comfortable on those.

    More in coach. I had my first business//first flight this month and it was great but I made it to India in one of the worst seats in coach (thank you United for not booking my ticket so I lost my better seat) so I can make it almost any where in coach (as long as I have a window). There are still so many places I want to see so more trips would help.

    More trips in economy. With family of 4 and no business travel. Front of the plane would erase miles balances faster than can churn cards to replace.

    more in econ. with a family I can stretch to get more vacations that way. I would rather go on 2-3 awesome vacations and suffer the hours in steerage to enjoy the days on the ground vs take 1 vacation and enjoy a few hours on the plane. and a handful of days on the ground.

  52. LarryInNYC
    LarryInNYC at |

    Given the choice, more trips in coach. I travel to travel, not eat airplane food and collect pajamas. Flying up front , no matter how nice, is still sitting in a seat for X hours breathing recirculated air cooped up in a metal tube hurtling through the sky.
    Of course, more trips in premium would be better than either of the choices offered. . .

  53. Tonei
    Tonei at |

    I would choose more redemptions in coach. Most of my travel is US domestic, and it’s not worth the mileage premium to sit up front on those flights.

    Depends on the length of the trip. Short, economy is okay. For long ones, I find it takes too much out of me. A shorter recovery time at the destination is worth the premium flight.

    When I first started collecting miles I was certainly of the mindset that I’d never “waste” miles flying upfront when I could take more trips in the back of the bus. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your perspective) I only have so much time to take trips (especially of the international variety) so I find I can pretty much fly J and F on all of my trips b/c otherwise I’d have a ridiculously big stash of miles and wouldn’t be putting a dent into them.

    More trips in economy for me! I worked with international students in the US and overseas for most of my adult life, so I have contacts all over the world. A quick e-mail to many of them gets me an automatic invitation………. I just need to get the tickets. I’ve been doing this for the last 7 years and have visited many of these friends in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Hands down, I prefer more trips in economy!

    Fewer trips in the premium cabin. Unfortunately, I don’t have unlimited vacation time so my preference is to travel as well as I can afford in the limited time I do get. That means that one or two trips up front is perfect for me and a massive improvement over economy for the trips.

  91. Sean
    Sean at |

    I normally use my miles to book trips for family, and when I do I try and get them in premium cabins as much as possible. While through a mix of upgrade instruments, CPUs, and op-ups I’ve been lucky enough to travel in premium cabins on about 75% of my domestic and international flights this year, they don’t get the same chance. Not to mention the fact that it’s really hard for me to turn down miles, and I always feel like I’m losing out when I travel on an award ticket 🙂

    Just booked my parents on a trip to Paris and Barcelona next year as an anniversary present, going BF on United on the way there and Business on Lufthansa on the way back. Hoping that the 744 they are scheduled on switches to a 748!

    I always, always, always thought I would answer “more trips in economy” but…while I still think I’d choose that, the gap is closing. After taking tons of economy trips (and getting older), I’ve begun to enjoy the few times I’ve been able to fly in the front of the plane, have an enjoyable flight, and get to the next place rested.

    Yeah, I’ll still pick the more trips in economy because the world is soooo big and there is so much to see, but man, even misers like me start to get swayed by those lay-flat seats!

  95. Harrison

    Economy all the way.

    I’m 6’2.5″ so premium class is a real treat and a much better redemption value!!!

    More trips in economy because I fit comfortably in economy plus exit aisle seats, the vino is free and I can get 1K status with roughly 6 trips and a $6K spend

    Fewer trips in premium cabins, because they would represent a better redemption value for the miles. I can buy economy tickets anytime, but premium cabin travel is more difficult to justify for personal trips.

    Fewer trips in Premium, because I would lose the desire to fly more trips if I had to go economy.

    Less trips via 1st class bc there’s no way I’d ever see myself spending my cash to travel pampered like that!

    More trips in economy hands down for me. I’d rather have more experiences in amazing places than fewer amazing experiences in the airline tin can.

    More trips in premium. Can’t be traveling all the time; I need to go to work on occasion.

    I prefer flying in premium cabins with my points. I spend enough time in economy to EARN those points!

    More trips in economy. The world is a small place and we have limited time here so need to go to as many places as possible!

    definitely in economy. gives you more bullets in your gun (more options) to ‘hit’ your target. A major psychological study was done with younger individuals who were able to delay their immediate gratification for longer term greater gratification. The results showed that those who delayed their instant gratification, ended up being the successful executives and professionals.

    I shared tips on spending miles with a stranger last flight last week. We have become friends and found out that we have something in common in term of research/work!

    Domestic trips under 4 hours in coach and domestic trips over 4 hours in premium. International is always premium!

    Start with economy and cover the places to visit . May be later think about enjoying the trip itself . For me more destinations are important

    I’d fly more trips in coach on paid tickets, and hoard my miles for less-frequent long-haul trips in premium cabins

    More trips in economy. I’ve done 24 hours of flying in economy before, and while I’m young it’s fine. I’d rather see many more places than travel in unnecessary luxury. More places, more faces.

    I would say since I have already traveled extensively in coach overseas, I would say fewer but in premium class. These will be certainly be very long journeys, so I rather get all the comfort that I can get to my destination.

    A couple years ago I would have said more trips in economy but after flying in premium cabins, I can’t go back now.

    Fewer in premium….though if there is no premium (like on Jet Blue) I notice that i don’t mind economy as much.

    Fewer trips in premium cabins. I am very tall and most of my height is in my legs. After flying upper class the difference is amazing. Most of the trips I want to take are international long haul flights and the thought of 10 to 15 hours in economy does not excite me.

    less in premium if the flight is over 10 hours. more in coach if the flight is under 8 hours. in between 8-10 is a toss up…

    Honestly,i will make the most of my trips and travels as Luxe Vacations..considering the fact i have been on standby tickets most of my life,being a flight attendant,i’d love to use my points to upgrade myself for Premium Cabins and treat myself with the finesse and the excellent service there..so for me,Premium Cabins all the way,coz i know i would not stop travelling all my life,so why not pamper myself with the best offered!!
