25,000+ MilleMiglia miles and dunno what to do with them!

  1. Hi everybody!

    I have 27,000 miles with Alitalia, they expire in July. I really don't know what to do with them. I live in Berlin and Alitalia doesn't fly from here anymore (except a ridiculous and unconnected Berlin-Turin flight). So I had to call their center to try to book something on AF/KLM, but the award flight I was looking into (to Bologna) would have costed 180 Euros + 25,000 miles... that is 11 Euros more than the same regular flight on KLM.com! I even tried to get a one way business ticket (24,000) miles, but they don't allow that kind of award on other Skyteam members.

    I even checked their catalogue, but apart from a couple of bags or some wine I really can't see anything interesting.

    Has anyone recently bought an award ticket with Alitalia miles on other skyteam carriers? If so, how much did you pay in taxes?

    I am opened to any suggestions!

    Thanks!
