Paying $390 on a CC with airline or 31,200 UR points?
CC. if you value your UR @1.3 or higher

DL is 42.5k+$46 in J, and 25k+$46 in Y.
Anything better?

Would still say LM but AC 55k or A3 45k begin to make more sense.

Selection is not so big, as they're short tiny one to one and an half hour flights.

Best way to book is a cash fare, they are usually cheap [delta is pretty ok].

Award adds 49+ in fees.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Correct, true for an economy Seat.
 But if he wants to fly in J then using miles might be the correct choice, aside for getting ripped off for the 1-2hr flight.
Unless he finds a HC ticket from a major airline who's making a stopover in yul and then to nyc, which I'm not sure he will be able to find.
