recommendation to use amex points

I have Amex 268K points. I am travelling from US to Dusseldorf to Catania, Sicily then back to Dusseldorf then US in Jan.

I want to fly business class.  I have looked but unsure who to fly on–maybe Air Canada–70K miles + $123 I can travel US to Dusseldorf-

I am unsure where to transfer my points in terms of “what is a good deal”

Any suggestions, please-

    For clarity, are you planning to spend time in DUS each way? Or on the return would you just want to come straight back to the US from Sicily?

    The best deal is the one that has award availability 🙂

    I would start with what award flights are available on your dates (give or take), and then decide the best way to book. But Aeroplan is likely going to be a top contender regardless.
