I have roughly 120,000 miles from the Chase mega-sign-up bonus and an additional $20,000 in spend over the last few months. With a wedding on the horizon, it's likely that I will meet the $30,000 spend for the BA companion pass. My fiance (wife) and I would like to go to Europe sometime this coming Spring or early Summer. My father also has about 105,000 BA miles from the Chase bonus that he pledged to me as a wedding gift. Problem: We, currently, need 150,000 miles to get a F Class award ticket from NA to Zone 1 Europe. However, I'm leery of their impending changes come November. I'm pretty sure I could meet the companion pass spend by then but there's really no way I'll get to 150,000 in my own account by then. My original plan was to book our tickets separately in Business class using the miles from my account and my dad's account, however, getting close to the companion pass makes me really covet that BA first class award. Any suggestions out there?
