No. Dl points for Ke metal in J isn't too bad IIRC
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.

What options to fly from Tel Aviv to Sydney?
AA via AMM and AUH 30/45/60
UA via Europe 35/60/110

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.

How would you use Chase UR and Citi TYP to get to Hawaii from San Francisco, Oakland or Sacramento?
