OW or RT?

Either way, the instant part of the question: 115K AC+YQ or 140K UA.

Is there a thread for this or can we discuss here the Best way to book domestic flights. ?

which airline is the best to fly. and which currency to use.

We all know the value of British points for short haul.

E.g.  NYC to Mia cheapest currency in economy is BA on AA or US air. no close in fee.

NYC to LAX . AFAIK all economy are 25k. But business you can get for 40k on united using Singapore kriesflyer. I am not sure about fees.

There are some good deals on delta using Alaska miles.

No stops on a OW with LH.

You can have a connection. That's not the same thing as a stopover. Does UA fly direct NYC-PSP?

How do you book business seat on AA and US from NYC to West Coast on a nonstop on way?
BA is entirely to much on a two their flight.

Which is why you'd have to do something like NYC-LAX-PSP, but it doesn't have to be 2 tickets. You can connect in LAX, you just can't stop in LAX.

I can just put NYC to PSP and I will get any result. Does not have to be lax
