LAX-DPS - Cathay Pacific First Class

This one was a nail biter. My brother and his wife were joining us in Bali, and while they had back up travel in place, they really wanted to fly Cathay Pacific First Class. 1 week out from departure, we made it happen.

What’s a “Feel Good Value”? Feel good value is the retail value of the flights booked (as searched on Google flights at the time of booking in the class of service). Why does it feel good? Cause its crazy expensive! We’d never let you pay this amount for a ticket - but that is why points are AMAZING!
