Earning yourself that upgrade to Business Class is not easy on an airline like Emirates, but their newest feature will certainly make that a bit more likely.
The Dubai-based airline has announced passengers can now combine 100 percent of their Skywards Miles help them reap the benefits quickly, however there's a catch. The scheme is only available as part of their My Family program but with 20 million people signed up to Skywards, that's a lot of people who could be getting a reduced fare flight or stretching out in the luxurious First Class rather than opting for the usual Economy cabin.
Up to eight family members can join, with a Family Head to keep things in check. Points can also go toward retail and lifestyle spending, plus hotels and bookings on other airlines.
