Best way to Bangkok? I have a lot of aa, Amex, and spg.

AA F 67.5k, J is 55k IIRC
However, check AS pricing, may be slightly cheaper. slightly

Best way NYC to SCL Santiago Chile. Eco and bus
LAN is the only one that flies there nonstop on a 787. 30k AA eco, 50k AA Biz. IIRC you have to call in
Does AA.com show availability? I know it's 25k for the flight. How do I check availability using BA avios?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

From YYZ (or nyc/ord etc..)  to bkk using aa miles, or any other airline using amex/spg,  sometime this summer. I also have 55k Lufthansa left that I wouldn't mind using up.

To LHR from NYC United is probably the easiest option.

No
Thats why ANA isn't an option for a OW NYC-LHR
