Business class to paris w/ points
I have about 150k Amex points, wife has about 120k Chase points, and we have a combined maybe 130k Delta skymiles: what is our best redemption strategy to get to Paris in the spring of next year (timing, transfer to non-domestic carrier, etc? Open to any airline and open to using cash to pay some of the difference, but want to take business class.
What is your origin? KLM/Air France usually have some pretty good award availability and all your points sources transfer to them.
Air France new business class is definitely one of the best ways to get to Paris, and award availability is usually great. However the fuel surcharge are hefty. If you feel like taking a connecting flight, you could also fly Singapore Airlines suites from NYC to Frankfurt and connect to Paris.
