using AMEX points MCO to FCO

    Hi Ben. my wife and I are flying one way to Rome for a cruise. We have 150000 AMEX points and think we might be able to go business on Emirates via Dubai, or KLM via JFK. Of course none of this points business in very easy, and the closer I get to a final decision, the farther away a successful booking becomes. Do you have any advice on the best way to get to Rome from Orlando using AMEX points? I have several Airline memberships.

    You can use Aeroplan to book flights on United via Chicago, Newark or DC. I dont believe there are any high surcharges. You can also fly Lufthansa or Air Canada but Aeroplan passes along high fuel surcharges.

    Delta is an option if there is saver award space on them or Alitalia, Air France or KLM. Fees are low when using SkyMiles but Amex charges a small tax on the points transfer.

    I have the similar situation, but my problem is that AZ website seems to be down for the award booking, or phone is the only option. How can we search for AZ award space? (class:J)

    Thanks!

    Search on Delta, segment by segment for nonstop flights. If there’s AZ saver space, it’ll show up there. FlyingBlue is also a good place to search for space

    [USER=310]@Wesley C[/USER] — The AZ website isn’t down for award booking AFAIK, but you do have to have 1k points in your account before you can use any of the functionality.

    I would use Delta, like David W said, or ExpertFlyer.
