What point value would be cheapest flying from nyc to las? (ba,ua,ib)? Which airline would be cheapest to transfer to get around 6 flights using air miles!
Don't cross post. All the legacy carriers are the same 12.5k. sw might be cheapest

Route? AA won't work for PE btw. Price out BA/AS/CX by yourself

This is RT. Also, EY and AS should be 50k OW.

Is the best way for a OW from DEN-OGG in Y or J with SQ miles?  I got inspired by High End Hobo's itinerary in the other thread and the flight back should be part of ANA booking to TLV with a "stopover" in Denver. ;)

I'm trying to book a Europe city hopper on delta only for October 2016 ( i have some delta vouchers to use up)
I'm not sure what stopovers i can add for free or close to it.

This is the Itinirary I'd Prefer:
NYC-BRU-BCN-MAN-DUB-ZRH-NYC
Im open to changing though.

So far this is what i got.
NYC-BRU BRU-NYC 510
NYC - BRU ZRH-NYC 529

I know that flights within europe are cheap but if i can add it to my original delta itinerary as a stop- That would be great!

Neither Delta, or any of its partners fly those routes nonstop
