1. questions:

    1) Since I have zero All Nippon miles but 100K continental, what’s the best award I can redeem in biz on Virgin Atlantic?

    2) If I have 150K delta miles, what’s the best use of them in terms of greatest cabin seat and bang for your mile from LAX to Asia/V Australia to Australia or to Europe?

  2. @ teddybw — I was off by a couple of weeks; my mistake!

    @ Gene — There are plenty of great partnerships out there, though I was trying to stick to the more mainstream frequent flyer programs or at least programs that miles can easily be transferred to from Membership Rewards and/or Starwood Preferred Guest.

    @ michael — If you got 5,000 more miles you would have enough for Virgin Atlantic business class from the US to Europe. For 150,000 Delta miles I would say the best value is probably V Australia. You can’t go between Asia and Australia (or via Europe) on the same award, though.

  3. Very informative article! Thanks for the summary as well! This is the type of more “advanced” (for me) information that I love learning about.
