can i book tlv-jfk via zrh on swiss with a3? how much is OW in j? taxes? i dont have miles in account and its showing me 30k but im assuming its y.
One way from TLV on Swiss is usually somewhere between $250 - $300, I believe. From US is much more.

so for 45, i would have to buy 22,000 getting 22,000 bonus (i have 1000) for 550 euro which is approx $625. plus another few hundred in yq makes the ticket almost $1,000.

Something like that. Probably about $900. You can then use your Marriott for another package or sell to a broker and probably still come out ahead.

Try searching each leg, that's how I have to do it. When you call they can book it together.

if you see it on milesnmore as separate legs, there isnt any reason to think its phantom.

I am trying to book TLV to FRA on 1/3/2019. I see a non-stop on UA for 25k miles. I am not signed into UA so this flight should be available on Avianca using Life Miles but it is not coming up.

Can anyone tell me what my options are.
