I thought for some reason a round trip ticket from Chicago to Aruba would cost me 22,00 miles. According to recent chart, it looks like 55,000. is that correct?

Forgive me for being a n00bie but if I see an award on United in saver is there anyway to hold the ticket (either thru United or ANA) while I transfer from Amex to ANA?

I believe with UA nowadays that the only real way to Hold a flight is via Fare Lock which is a service they offer. Kicker is that it ain't free.

So I can pay united with fare lock to hold a ticket for me to redeem using ANA?

If you are redeeming UA for an ANA flight, you can hold the flight on UA with Fare Lock.

But if I want to book  ANA miles on United metal there is no way of holding that? Correct?

Is it true that you cannot do one way award with ANA  ?

Booking with ANA might be risky if you have to wait 2-3 days for transfer to complete and then who knows if award will still be there.

I'm about to transfer 210,000 miles to ANA. If anyone has this available and doesn't have a chance to use it due to miles expiring, I would be happy to give them 210,000 Amex points in return.
Or, if I transfer them to myself/ANA and can't make the booking due to lost availability, will anyone make use of them/buy them from me?

We can help each other out...

Please let me know.

In the process of booking TLV-WAW-TLV-IST-NYC stopover HNL.
Can anyone comment on changes once travel has commenced? I want to be able to switch the date (and possibly routing) of my flight to HNL after i land in NYC
