If I see a Swiss flight on United.com, but not on Aeroplan, does that mean only United can book it?

Is there any risk to book on ANA a *A  award, for  someone that's not your family?
Anyone please, that could answer this?

Yes if you book an RT. However, if you split into two 1 ways it will be about $700 total. Also use AC as they do not charge YQ on LX

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

And iirc, the pooled points count for status points, too, so you could get *a gold in one trip in some cases.
