Australia to USA
I am going to be in Australia next June and I am considering my options for my return for my wife and I. I have booked united business class on the way there through Houston 80k miles each ( I know not the nicest, but I had a lot of miles to burn). Currently I have 90k chase points and my wife has 65k chase points. She also has 45k united miles. Is there a better option to book our flights back home rather than united again? I am going to be flying out of Melbourne most likely.
Thank you for any suggestions!
I don’t know how many miles it would cost but if you pool your UR points you might be able to transfer them to Virgin Atlantic (VS) and use them to book on Virgin Australia (VA). First verify there’s space on the VA flight you need and then contact VS to see how many points it would be. Also consider buying an internal flight to SYD or BNE if needed.
