Traveling to Europe from Clt in October. I have 30k AA miles and 130k Chase Rewards points and the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Is there a way to redeem points for business or first class travel round trip?
If you can find award space on a SkyTeam, you can transfer the Chase points to Korean Air and book. 80k round trip in business class, plus taxes and fees. Or, if you find space on United’s own flights, you can transfer to United and book for 57.5k one way, 115k round trip. If you use a Star Alliance partner for the transatlantic flight, it will jump to 70k one way.
Fees using Korean Air is higher since they do pass on fuel surcharges whereas United will not.
