With Asia miles that might be your best.

With Alaska miles itll be cheaper but it needs to be available.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Trying to book NYC-MXP-DXB-MLE-NYC with 2 plus day stopovers in each city in J. want to fly in as much EK as possible due to nonstop flights.

Already relented to booking NYC to MXP with LM on LX to avoid YQ

MXP-DXB I can use 57K QF plus $400 PP in YQ

Anything I can do to book the trip more efficiently?

I donít have access to AS or JAL

Hi
I'm looking to book travel to Israel for the middle of August. I'm flexible on dates. But I have to be there for August 13th through the 15th. I would like to be there a week around those dates.

I have Amex miles and a lifelines account. I was wondering if it would be worth it for me to use lineslines transfered from Amex. I'm not very familiar with mileage programs and award tickets.

What is your advice?

I can't seem to get any non stop flights on lifelines. I would be willing to do a stopover of it was very worthwhile.

Amy advice?

VS 454 is not UA90, or LY001, I wouldn't expect everyone to know what flight it is just because it's a TLV flight.
But the answer is no.

I think Dan recently posted an article showing the breakdown between booking VS/DL/FB miles and how the rates/fees vary
