Asia Miles / Cathay Pacific — Don't trust Asial Miles, they are big hoax and scam!
I am member of Asia Miles linked with Cathay Pacific Air mileage program since 2001. These interlinked companies are located in China. I have accrued lot of mileage points , but so far in last 6 years I am not able to redeem and on so many occasions my points lapsed. Several times I tried to redeem mileage awards by booking a ticket online on cathay pacific and through Asia miles customer service. But till today I always got same reply that Flights are full. Even when I tried to book a ticket using Asia miles two months in advance, i got same status as " no availability".
I am holding quite a good amount of points but in last 6 years I am total failure to make use of it .
We are all very familiar about Chinese business ethics, the way people are ripped by counterfeit and fake products from China. Similar this Airline with the help of Asia miles award program-- are doing mal practices with many innocent customers/passengers by not giving them worth of reward points they generated. My case could be isolated one, but issue here is, inspite of several attempts, believe me not even once I could make use of it.
I am sure Asia miles is pure hoax, as well as scam similar to many chinese business scams we come across. Cathay pacific is part of this game.
I alert people to be careful. watchful with this coalition of popular customer ripping program which is otherwise known as Asia Miles reward system. Don't ever get duped by their glossy posters and advertisements. Better steer clear from these jokers from China.
I got following lip service reply from jokers from Asia Miles jokers in China- ( a Country popular for Snake eating). I do appreciate that you would like to use your miles on your preferred award types and understand the reason for your frustration at not being able to utilize your earned mileage. Regarding our redemption seat allocation, allow me to explain that the number of award seats allocated depends on the time of year, routing, time of day and predicted
passenger load. If a flight is forecasted to be full, fewer redemption seats will be allocated. As we get closer to the flight date and a more realistic forecast emerges, additional seats may be released for redemption should the flight be under the originally estimated capacity.
As much as we wish to assist our members with their redemption requests, due to the reasons explained above, it might not be always possible for us to accommodate demand...
