    What is the best site to search for a award ticket from N. America to VCE? On the AA site it keeps showing BA flights over the water with fuel charges. Isn't their another airline in One World that does that route?

    I'd search for AA into other Italian cities (ie. MXP, FCO) or look at Air Berlin space. AA.com should display all available partners. If you do end up flying to MXP or FCO, the train is quite fast from the historic center, but Easyjet and Alitalia also operate flights. Hope that helps!

    Agree. The train is a lovely way to go. Stay a day or two in Florence or Milan - so much to see.

    AA or AB to DUS then AB on to VCE
    AA or IB to MAD or BCN then IB on to VCE

    And if you really need to avoid BA: AY to HEL and then IB or AB ( with one stop each) on to VCE.:)

    Indeed, those routings will work.

    To the OP, if it comes to this, perhaps just deal with the BA co-pays and not waste a day with a superfluous connection.

    I'm doing that route in August. Not ideal...three stops. BWI-MIA on AA then airberlin MIA-DUS-VCE. airberlin's business cabin is nice. Same seats as Etihad business, which is awesome!

    Thought you might want to see the following Traveling Better thread, as it relates to AB:
    http://www.travelingbetter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5705

    Not sure of the timing of things, but it's important to have the info

    Hello,
    Thanks for the info, do I need an account, and miles in it, to check AB space?
    Thank you

    The website displays only some of AA's partners.

    Agreed with other posters. I, too needed to get to VCE. I'm ultimately booked JFK-MXP and will take a 29euro train to Venice.

    The Envoy product on US from PHL to VCE is pretty nice. I've flown it a few time and appreciate the direct-aisle access from each seat and privacy - especially when compared to some other J class products. The quality of the FAs is hit or miss - sometimes they're fantastic, other times you can't wait to land.
