New to the forum so forgive me if this isn't in the right place. I'm looking to use Skymiles to get 2 Business Elite or First seats to Europe from LAX. I'm not very flexible on dates (August 2014), but very flexible on the destination in Europe. My goal is a direct flight from LAX to Europe, either FCO, CDG, AMS even possibly LHR or Moscow on Aeroflot. I'm trying to avoid the first leg in the US to get from LAX to ATL, MSP, DTW, SLC, etc. and want to get to Europe in one long haul. If you've read this far then I'll get to the real point, can I use Skymiles on AF, KLM, Alitalia operated non-stop flights from LAX for Business/First Awards if they don't show up on DL's website?
