TAP Air Portugal is running a special offer from London and Manchester to New York and Cancun in Business Class.

The UK deals are as low as £1,350 to New York and Cancun.

You need to stay away at least five nights. You can book as far out as next September. Availability seems tight in 2023.

What can you do with the miles you earn?

TAP is part of Star Alliance. You cannot credit your flights to British Airways Executive Club or Virgin Atlantic, neither of whom are in Star Alliance.  However, you can credit the miles to Lufthansa Miles & More or any other Star Alliance frequent flyer programme.
