What's the best way to. Book Alitalia Tlv-Fco ( will be flying with an infant ) ?
I think using FB miles on Alitalia- I just looked it up and there's great availability for 15k miles + $26 in Y.

Pretty sure Alitalia to FCO Y is just a middle seat with a cup holder, look into it.

Just always do the math to see if a RT ticket (even if youre not flying RT) is cheaper than the use of miles
