    The airlines that hub in Chicago are United and American; it sounds like you’re looking to use miles in a “Get-Out-of-Jail-Free” scenario, which means that you might have to eat the cost of a non-SAAver award.

    I’d definitely recommend, then, looking at whether American miles make sense. It’s easiest to accure those through purchasing or a credit card bonus; wait for the big 50-60k bonuses to be available again!

    Avios are also great if there’s Saver-level space on the American flight you’d need to ORD
