Best option for Business award to Europe

    I a looking to go from LAX to Europe next summer in Business. We want to go to the Germany, Poland, Czech area, but anywhere close is fine…trains and cheap inter-Europe flights abound.

    I have the following points
    135K Amex MR
    50K Amex MR (Wife)
    200K United
    200K AA
    200K AA (wife)
    40K BA
    70K Delta
    50K Delta (Wife)

    From my research, the best I can do is to transfer 88K points per ticket to ANA and get LAX->WAW round trip with a stopover and an open jaw on LOT. Taxes are $330.

    1. Can my wife and I both transfer Amex MR points to my ANA account? I have found information that this used to be possible pre-2014, but nothing conclusive if it is still an option.

    2. This seems like a good redemption option to me. Are there any better options?

    3. Is LOT Business class decent? I have read a few reviews that indicate that C on a 787 is very comfortable

    4. Are there any Premium Economy options? I only found Premium Economy on BA, Virgin and Iberia (limited). Iberia seems like a good deal to Spain (37K points + $~100), but Spin is pretty far from Germany, and there are few planes from LAX that seem to have Premium Economy

    Am I missing anything?

    I would try Lot. They fly directly from LAX to WAW ant then to MUC or FRA and the 787 includes also Premium Economy.
