JFK - HAN in First Class. I have a variety of points in most major programs. I'm so far strongly considering CX booked with Alaska miles.

Which miles currency are you referring to?

Delta
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Delta
Anything more than 1cpp is good for Delta. I'm assuming you're not transferring into Delta?

You definitely won't be disappointed with that choice.

Being that CX F is not available now, is there an easy way to book it in J and upgrade later?

JFK - DOH - HAN in J on QR

AA award would be two separate awards for $110K. For that price, I'd fly Transpac. I specifically want QR since the timing is good and Q suites sounds great too. Curious if there is another way.
