Just curious how do you have the option to go from "anywere" in the US?  maybe a weekend stayover will help the price

Problem with aa is that it is broken into categories of months. In other words the cutoff for a roundtrip ticket is the end of June.  The other part of the round trip deal is from July to Sep., so I would basically have to buy 2 round trip tickets with the reduced miles award.

I can;'t stay over a weekend.  Anywhere in the US as I figure I can find a decent deal to the departure city, or perhaps use a free JetBLue ticket.

If you have or can get some continental miles you can get the round trip for 75,000 miles with the departure in biz/first EWR_LHR
Or Air India for a total of approx $940 JFK-LHR
Too bad SilverJet just went bankrupt ;D
