Singapore
Don't know how smart that is. In the past, people have been able to transfer from amex to singapore without matching names, but many of those accounts were then audited by singapore.

Anyone know if Virgin Atlantic is an instant transfer? Or if it is faster to transfer from Amex.

Although the virgin Atlantic website says round trip redemption is required, the agent said it is not enforced and that you can do one way for half.
