AA awards flights will be almost always be on BA with exorbitant YQ, and their routing rules wouldn't allow EY via AUH/DXB.

You can use AA on QR via DOH

Its also 80K with UA.

Best bet is booking VS, AF or KLM via Delta for 80k each way.
Thanks all!

My question is not about pricing, but where's my best bet to get a more premium experience. E.g. I know Delta and United are at around the same price, but my question is where will I get more bang for my mile - delta on vs/af/KLM or United on LH? The latter is a better product, but perhaps availability is better on the former?

Is QR at the same level as EK and EY? I've flown through AUH, but DOH somehow rubs me the wrong way.

What about AS awards on CX? Is that doable?
