Lowest J O/W J award/lowest taxes/surcharges ex-Europe
I am trying to find the [U]one, single FF program[/U] that meets ALL these criteria: 1) it is an AMEX MR transfer partner, 2) it has the has the lowest O/W J award ticket ex-Europe AND 3) also has the lowest taxes/fuel surcharges.
Here’s the situation: I need [U]one[/U] O/W J award ticket from (basically) anywhere in western Europe (preferably CDG) to ATL on ANY date in August or September 2017. I am trying to use the LEAST amount of AMEX MR transfer points, and incur the LOWEST tax/fuel surcharge rate. It can be on ANY airline as long as they are an AMEX MR partner, and I really don’t care if it means I have to back-track to Moscow to get Atlanta as long as it is in J. I will even do a long (8+ hour) layover or multiple stopovers if necessary.
I think it might be using Aeroplan on Turkish (55,000 + USD127.89) which looks pretty darn good, but I just thought I would throw the question out there and see if anyone had any thoughts.
Thanks very much for all your help!
I would do Aeroplan, but you’re not limited to Turkish. Swiss, Brussels, SAS, and United are good alternatives to keep fees down as well.
