1) Buy them when they go on sale for 150% bonus
2) Time to broaden your imagination, most people indeed pay YQ when flying LH F.

KE via ICN
CX via HKG

Is relatively open at times. KE is pretty much always open.

+YQ. And CZ/MU are hardly aspirational, but if you are looking for the cheapest way it will do the trick.

Also have to keep in mind AZ can't always see the space.

Even when they can see it, they can't always book it.

I have no idea this employees hours but Tila from the Albania office is very helpful (Spoke with her Motzai Shabbos around 9pm) & is competent so if you ever call Alitalia try getting Tila on the line. Its not a big office from my understanding.

This thread is "best way", truth is it should be named "cheapest way". Best way would be via SQ, EK or CX etc. :)
