Mileage needed to go to Melbourne (Australia) from Atlanta on Business Class
Would you please let me know how much mileage (AAdvantage) do I need to fly on business class from Atlanta to Melbourne (one way)?
Please note that I would like to make this travel in December, 2016 but would like to book ASAP before the AAdvantage devaluation kicks in. Appreciate your answer.
[USER=1451]@Javed Rahman[/USER] you can find all the mileage requirements for AA awards at [URL]http://www.aa.com/i18n/AAdvantage/redeemMiles/all-partner-chart.jsp[/URL]. A direct flight (very hard to get) would cost 62,500 AA miles. If you need to connect through a third region you would add the cost of the two separate flights to get the total cost (prices as two awards).
Would you please let me know of any tricks to avoid British Airways and instead get on a different airlines for travel between following cities?
[B]ATL – IST[/B]
[B]ATL – ATH[/B]
[B]ATL – CAI[/B]
I find tickets on my desired dates (December, 2016) both on AA and BA websites using AA Miles. Just want to avoid BA outbound. When I return, I will be taking BA for inbound anyways. I just do not want to pay fuel surcharges on both ways. Appreciate your thoughts into this.
[USER=1451]@Javed Rahman[/USER] you would start at the wikipedia page for each of the airports you are considering. They will list all the airlines that fly there. You want to try to find routes that are operated by Air Berlin, FinnAir, Iberia, or AA itself. Iberia does charge some fuel surcharges but they are relatively minor. The other three do not. Good luck.
