Looking to travel to Thailand with the wife in August. Cutting it pretty close in terms of how far out you should book for award travel, but MIL just offered to babysit so we decided to take the opportunity to travel. Ideally would like to go from August 2-11, but AA had no availability and UA via UR would cost 330k + $130 for Business there/Economy back (and I feel like I could do better…) Am I better off phoning in and speaking to a representative? Awardhacker shows 140k RT First Class via Cathay but I can’t seem to get that option to populate on aa.com
Working with the following point totals:
- 421k UR +12k United
- 467k AA (256k Me, 211k Wife)
- 108k MR
- 79k TYP
- 50k SPG if we need to transfer to boost (but would ideally like to use this for hotel stay in Thailand)
Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Looks like JAL flies 140k AA RT Business Class via Pointimize, is this the best bang for my buck?
