can you help me out?
i have 242,000 delta miles
45,000 starwoods
98,000 AA
45,000 continental.
i want to get to israel for the summer with my wife and 1 yr old kid (i thought i can  go with delta but i checked and they want 130,000 each ticket... any suggestions????)

Do you have any way to get a few more miles in any of those accounts?
5,000 more starwood,
5,000 more CO
or 2,000 AA would do a ton to make your miles much more marketable/bonusable (starwood)!!

Bonusable? he sofar has 2 5,000 *point bonuses. it would take 15K (not 5K) for another bonus

So lets assume you can trade the AA miles for one RT on a Star Alliance member, and you can use the SPG for the other through UA.
Now you need to check to find availability.
Dan Hakadosh has a post about how to find availability:

Here it is. ;)

I just want to clarify what I said before because it seems that people have taken it in the wrong way. I may have written it a bit harsh but that was not my intention whatsoever.
It is totally understandable that it is all very overwhelming when a person is starting in a new field.
All I was saying was that if you take a little time to do a quick search to get a general idea of whats going on it will be much easier to ask the right questions and then in turn get answers.

Did you pick up the phone and ask Delta about partner availability?
