Looking to book NYC-TLV in Feb '21. Plenty of saver award seats in biz available on United. I have many Citi TYP, and Amex MR. Which program would be the best to transfer the points to to book?
Just in case something goes wrong and I will need to change/ cancel the tickets, I'd rather avoid airlines that a) are on verge of bankruptcy, and b) airlines which are very difficult with changes even in special situations.
