Best would be to use AA 57,500. Sell your Amex and buy AA Miles. Or you can Transfer Amex to AC and book UA.
Thank you.
That's not an option
Back to the original question.
How much is a J ticket using IB avois on BA Metal. How much is the taxes?

Will the taxes be the same as I see on AA website ?
Any way to avoid these big fees?

Any sweet spots in Y?

Hard to find in Y due to the ADP. I'd book a cheap flight through the CSR Portal.

I think all Avios see the same availability. Maybe they don't have saver for that day
