Hi guys, I'm located in Charleston, SC and have 104,000 BA miles. What's the best way to use them? I'd like to visit Rome next year, but it seems like using the BA miles (out of Charlotte, NC for example) is MUCH more costly than with American Airlines. For example, if I fly NYC to Rome with BA, it's 48,000 miles + $564.84 in taxes! By comparison, flying the same dates CLT-FCO, it's only 40,000 miles and $50! So, next I checked using my BA miles through American Airlines. The exact same flights as the AA rewards ticket cost 60,000 miles and $500! So, what can I do with these miles that isn't super expense?
