30k/45k A3
They say it is 60k RT.
How do I transfer points into Miles+Bonus? They say only from Star Alliance tickets flown.

SPG
Thanks.
What is better? 60k SPG or $600 cash+ getting 1800 MR pts? Do you know how to get the 45k RT?

Is the 45k OW for business? My mistake. I thought it meant RT.

LIR-NYC with a connection in Miami.
Should I go with 15k AA, or pay $220 with TY points at a value of 1.6 ?

Should I go with BA avios, or pay $220 with TY points at a value of 1.6 ?
IINM it'll cost you 15k Avios, assuming there's availability, and 13,750 TYP with probably a few flight times to chose from. Go with TYP. Whats the question?

Would it be worth to book  business at about $440 with TY points ?
