Did you price check on sapphire reserve? Sometimes makes more sense than redemption and surcharges, especially cause youll earn miles

Air france will sometimes be 95k

DL used to be 80,000. But I guess they eliminated their partner sweet spot.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Nah. I'll just do TK for the outbound. Debating whether to do VS or AC for return.

Oh, yeah that makes sense, thought you were specifically looking for VS. AC is gonna be cheaper..

VS kicks with cancellation/change fees as well as CS in general and especially hold times. (Companion discounts are another reason as well if applicable)

Can I add a klm flight to my virgin Atlantic flight so luggage is getting transferred instead of collecting and recheck them?

Called Virgin and they said they can't combine it, but when I checked in to my 1st klm flight the agent was able to tag the bags all the way to final destination
