Wanted to spend few days in Belgium before we start our trip to Italy. Tried to book 2 seats on business in 3rd week of September from JFK-BRU, the total fuel and other taxes are $ 895.00 p.p. I could not find any award availability from LAX. to Italy. If I add additional $350 p.p. LAX-JFK round trip in eco. class + train or flight from BRU to VCE or any other city in Italy, I will pay very close to paid business class seats rather than using my 136000 points. Need help and suggestions please.
