They are not doing OW for partners. But I always understood from them that on AZ metal you can do OW. Never asked how many miles it would require....

I'd take that over dealing with AZ call center. I believe it's 60k + YQ for a OW on AZ metal.

If AZ does indeed not allow OW, I believe KLM is the way to go.  Korean would be 60k - they transfer instantly from Chase UR, I have no idea how much YQ. Maybe PUTPAC and let us know...

OWs are only allowed on KE metal; RTs are required on partners.
