That means additional 52K more points + i will have to use chase instead of amex. Id rather use up my amex points.

What about Singapore can i book that flight with them? Do they charge fuel charges?
yes Singapore charges the same 1k RT. You should be able to use AC which transfers from Amex to book on LX with no fuel surcharges

I'm trying to book a ticket to Europe i see a great flight from Lufthansa i checked on ANA and its available  -88k points + about $1k in fees R/T in business-. Any way to avoid those fees, any better/cheaper way to book that flight?
I think there's an Amex offer for spend 1k on ANA and get 20k points.

If he looks similar to you, and you give him your ID, it should be doable.

If he's under 18 can't he just not have his ID?

You can buy 25k cheaper than buying 20k SPG?

The person on the reservation needs to be under 18 in order for the ID not to be needed.
