Best Business Award Ticket from LAX to LHR
Hi friends I have a situation in which I would greatly appreciative your knowledge and expertise with.
I need to book a [B]Business Class[/B] award ticket from [B]LAX to LHR[/B] for[B] myself and one companion[/B]. We need to [B]arrive[/B] into LHR on [B]Wednesday July 31st.
I’m looking for the best “bang for our buck” – we would prefer non-stop but are not opposed having to go through 1 city too.
We have 2 million points on [B]Amex Platinum Travel[/B] and 387,000 on [B]Alaska Award Travel[/B].
What are our best options for such?
Thank you so much!
Hey Nicky! For specific flights/dates like this, your best options are probably going to be the ones with award space. Realistically, summer travel from California to Europe will require either a few connections, or pretty high surcharges, although if you wait to book until the day before sometimes there are more options.
This is the type of situation where I really like the [URL=’https://onemileatatime.com/go/juicy-miles/’]JuicyMiles[/URL] tool — it should give you a sense of the options available, so you can decide on the tradeoffs.
