Lhr-mex and Nyc-mex?
both in y rt

Y international is almost always best booked with a good revenue ticket

On a different note, best way to book AKL-SYD in J/F. I know 20k BA, but EK flies this route, anyway to get it cheap for a one way?
or on the China air fifth freedom?

I need to fly (2 pax) Sunday night 3/27 from MIA/FLL to JFK/LGA - must be direct.

I have all kinds of points or willing to pay cash just looking for the best value (using the rough grey market value rates).

Awards - seeing nothing on AA, SW (they don't go direct FLL-LGA? ugh)

Options:
Priceline- Best I am seeing is $202.10 per person on AA or Delta.
Awards - UA (just 25k and that goes to EWR which is an option but then I add +$75 for extra cab), Delta 32.5k

Is there close in availability or will the cash price for this route improve if I wait? Or will it get even worse.

Am I missing anything? Any insight appreciated. TIA

WN flies FLL-ISP nonstop if that can work.
