Using Aegean Miles&Bonus miles in F
I know this is probably a highly specific question, but here goes:
I have a ton of Aegean miles (mainly via Greek credit card spend) and I am mainly interested in using them to fly Europe-US. There are plenty of options in biz (I have already redeemed for Turkish, Lufthansa and Austrian) even though surcharges kinda suck (Turkish is decent compared to the others). However, I would like to use my miles to fly F and I am stumped as to the options…
1. United is the first obvious and easy choice, but ew.
2. Lufthansa would be nice but only booking two weeks out usually does not work with my schedule.
3. Swiss doesn’t allow partner redemptions.
4. Air Canada, LOT, Turkish and Austrian don’t have F.
Is there some other option that I am missing here? Could I use these miles for, say, the Singapore FRA-JFK flight?
And, finally, if there are no real good options to fly F Europe-US, any other sweet spots I should keep in mind?
Singapore does not release F award space to partners, and very little J.
Consider ANA, Asiana (if they don’t remove F from Europe) and perhaps Thai.
Have you tried looking for Lufthansa a year out when they open up booking?
In the rest of *A only Air China, Air India and Egypt Air has F product in their planes.
