Where do ppl see  awards for 7.5 (its possible they price it on the phone that way) but on the website it shows NA as 20K RT in Y and 30K in J
Wrong chart

Your chart is not the Star Alliance Partner Award chart. Thats the TK metal chart.

Randomish q,

I have ~140k United miles and ~150k Amex
I wanted to book a rt to New Caledonia or Fiji. Any idea how or if this would be possible higher than eco?

I want to book 2 tix from nyc (or anywhere in the USA) for either this month, or January 2020 for a week or so.

Much appreciated!
