Business Class to Europe

Business Class to Europe

  1. Renae

    Hi guys

    So I’m trying to book award business class to Europe. My destination is Spain but don’t mind getting as close to there as possible in business class via Dublin, London, Paris etc

    I have:
    71’690 citi thank you points
    102’000 Amex
    50’000 Avios

    What’s the best redemption to do this ?

    Hi [USER=1715]@Renae[/USER], how many tickets are you trying to get? What cabin? Time of year?

    In addition to what [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] said, whats your origin airport?

    You can transfer AMEX points to Delta, who charges 62.5k one way US-Europe, or Aeroplan, who charges 55k one way for US-Spain.

    Flying Blue is also a good option and both Amex and Citi transfer to it.

    You can use Avios for short flights within Europe on Iberia/BA, if necessary.

    Do you have or can you get Chase UR points? They transfer to Korean Air SkyPass, who charges 80k [I][B]round trip[/B] [/I]US-Europe on SkyTeam partners.

    I’d try to pad your AmEx account a little bit and look for star alliance awards through Aeroplan (110k RT). Gary over at VFTW reported that TK has a fair amount of award space now (unsurprisingly). Might be an option for no fuel surcharges.

    You can also buy the remaining points from Amex for 2.5¢ each at the time of the transfer to Aeroplan. Not ideal, but not horrible.
