Did you book it? It looks like it might book into Premium economy instead of Business class.

Can you upload or email me your confirmation so that we can confirm it is indeed business and not premium economy?

Interesting (see below), looks like it is a Premium economy fare but it does look like it books into E class which is Business class.

Bookable with AMEX points + 35% refund = 70,000 points for round trip Business class to South Africa + the points earned from the flights makes it a pretty good deal!

You can also earn 57,746 Alitalia miles with Millemigalia Young.
That is more then enough for a one way Business class ticket TLV-JFK and you'd even get back 9600 miles.
You'd then have 19,346 miles left which is enough for a one way ticket TLV-Rome or another medium flight.

All told it's a very good deal!

Pay 70,000 AMEX points and get back almost 60,000 Alitalia points!

Will people really fly this way to JNB with fake J for 4 hours each way to FCO and doubling the length of the journey?

Showing 3:50 outbound.
Bigger problem is you've taken an 8 hour flight and turned it into a 16 hour Italian nightmare. Am I off base here? I feel like I'd suck it up and fly LY Y at half the price, especially with kids in tow.
