NYC to Europe (AA Redemption 1st or biz)
Like most on here, I am frustrated with the redemption awards options on BA flights from JFK to LHR in biz or 1st. I’m intrigued to try one of the Emirates States airlines in 1st or biz and connect to LHR…..whats the best way to look into this? Is it a call to the AA EP desk to look at options. I would love to fly home to London for Thanksgiving but really want the experience at any
You want to fly in J or F JFK-Middle east-LHR on a AA award ticket if I understand correctly?
AA only partner with Qatar and Etihad, Emirates is not possible on a AA award ticket.
Also AA do not allow routing true the Middle east on your way to Europe. You can still fly true ME on your way to Europe, but it would be priced as 2 separate awards.
For a guide on how to use your AA miles read this article by Lucky.

For Qatar you’d search using the BA tool.
