Hi everyone. My wife and I are going to a destination wedding in Jamaica around July 23 2012. We are flying out of Philly or NYC area and hope to cover the trip with our miles as much as possible, economy class. This includes the flight along with paying for the stay at the resort (Iberostar Rose Hall Suite) or surrounding hotels. What we have a good amount of at our disposal with comments (all searched as one-ways first): American Airlines: AA site has no availability in economy. Business is 30k each way vs 17.5k if economy was available. Continental: 17.5k economy outbound available. Only 30k business available on inbound Delta: Can't seem to get it to show less than 50k miles each way! ... even though the award calendar shows low economy available. US Airways: Medium redemption at 30k each way (60k total, ouch?) Cap1 Venture: Can cover ticket 1:1, but I like to save these for flexible hotel redemption Citi Thank You Points: Never used, so not sure. (Some) Starwoods: Never used so not sure As for paying resorts, I'm not sure of any options other than using the Cap1 or Citi Thank You points. My questions: Am I missing something when searching for award options? Should I search partner airline availability? Or can I assume that there is a chance one or many of these airlines will open up more space as July nears? What would be my best options for watching or search more deeply for available award space? ExpertFlyer? Other tool? Given the options, what are your thoughts? Which would you prefer to use? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
