Hi all - As part of my ongoing education in this game I'd like to experiment with understanding everything I've learned so far by searching for complicated, high-value award tickets. I don't have enough miles yet and will likely use an Award Booking service when the time is right. However, I'm one of those people that likes to know how everything works. With the above introduction which program do you recommend I mess around with and learn the functionality? I'm using Oneworld and Star Alliance carriers and will be looking for flights departing from ORD to Europe, Middle East and South East Asia. I'll want complicated First and Business Class awards typically at peak times or just before peak times for 3 seats at a time. I will look for Free one ways and stop overs to maximize the value of the redemption. Your suggestions on which on or ones to "play" with for a short period of time are helpful. NB: I used 100 points on Award Nexus already and have only scratched the surface. I think I'm getting the hang of it but need to try out everything I've learned. Thanks, Blue.
