JFK-FRA with SQ & then I dont know where you gotta go but you can fly with LH to Menara...

The first leg is 47k & the 2nd leg is tricky.. But best way for sure via SQ, $230 maybe in yq

--

You can maybe even book via EY for SN J 36k + $190 RT & make another cash booking with Jetairfly BRU to RAK

Can't all be on one reservation? Has to be two separate bookings?

completely forgot about them, they fly the 787 to CMN however online it shows the pitch as 60". That is really really bad if true.

DL charges 60k in Y and 90k in J +YQ and good luck getting more than 1 seat in j on KE. They do allow you to route through Europe with AF/KL/AZ.

60k for F (EY apartment) is one of the sweetest spots in the AA chart. Take AAdvantage of it before the mAAsacre and it becomes 100k.

Hi people who understand how to maximize Chase UR for travel.
 
I do not understand it.  I have tried, and am still pretty clueless.
 
I want to use Chase UR to travel from South Carolina to Bangkok.  Economy is fine, unless there is a crazy deal on BC/FC.  I am guessing Charlotte, NC airport is closet one that would make the trip.
 
Any help would be appreciated in figuring out how to best maximize my UR for these flights.

welcome aboard,

1) open a united.com FF acct.
2) search for award availability CLT-BKK
3) once you see the routing you want (via FRA-LH seems best-Only 1 stop) transfer in from chase to your united acct per way 80k for business class. (130k for First per way)
4) There are no fuel surcharges, only some tax, not much.

Thank you so much!  Looks like 80k roundtrip economy per person.
