Booking long distance business class tickets out of pocket for parents and in-laws
I have never travelled in business class on a long distance flight.
Booked business class for the first time for my aged parents for travel between India and Seattle. my mom had some health issues and wanted her to travel comfortably.
$7000 for return tickets. Felt little pinch on pockets but I used 220k points from Chase rewards to reduce ticket cost by 3K.
Now I need to do the same for in-laws :) since my mother in law has some health issue, I would like to book her in business. Any ideas tips to get good deals on business class?
Would it look bad if I just book one person in business class and ask my father & father in law to travel economy as they are healthy?
They travel every year, so just thinking of setting expectations.
