    anyone have suggestions for getting to Azores? PDL?
    Is the only way to get there from LIS?
    openflights.com shows other direct flights but I dont see them popping up at all in ita matrix or anywhere else.

    planning on going star alliance but could consider burning avios/AA miles too if it made sense

    Air Berlin has a 1x/weekly (Wednesday) service from DUS - PDL from May - October. If you are redeeming Avois, the YQ is ~180 euros. So you could do a 1 way on AB and then another one way to LIS on TP

    I've only ever paid to fly BOS - PDL on SATA which was ... an experience. If you have TAP Victoria miles you can use them to book the SATA flights.

    Are you flying from Europe or the US?

    Yea, either you are going to need to connect via LIS or DUS if you want to get there on miles.

    On the other hand there are a few dates in September rt ~$700 for the direct flight YYZ<->PDL

    Do you have TAP Victoria miles or SATA miles? Because you can't book SATA flights with other *A carriers even if they have TAP flight numbers.
