What about LM?
Would be the same price, and more cash. They'd be terrible for changes and cancellations as well

Isn't the booking fee per booking, not per passenger? Also, this is assuming you don't plan on canceling or changing.

Don't think so, but still more cash.

UA doesnít fly from JFK.

Aeroplan probably best, unless you think you might need to cancel, then Singapore.

Whatís the cash price of the ticket? More then $335 (value of 25k + tax)? Otherwise could be better off paying cash (or cash value points).
Sorry mistake, need from JFK or LGA actually. It's $300 each way & little availability with points on Delta or AA.

I'm not sure if im putting this is the right place but here it is.

Im looking for a one-way from FFL/MIA to JFK/LGA for the 28th. I can find anything for under $250 with baggage which is ridiculous. I thought about using southwest points but i dont have enough. If anyone wants to sell, please PM me ASAP.

Why would you want Copa points?
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

United charges a $75 close in fee for travel within 21 days of booking.
You can often book with a partner such as Aeroplan, Singapore, Acianca etc. At simular value, without a close in fee.
