I'm trying to plan a family trip (4 people) to Italy & England in June. Tentative itinerary is PHL or IAD to MXP on CO/UN, and return LHR to PHL or IAD on any *A carrier (We'll travel from Italy to England using my BA miles - it's dirt cheap within Europe) I have 114K USAIR miles, and my wife has 44K (if a 2x transfer deal comes up, we'll end up with about 200K total). I also have 100K Chase Ultimate Rewards points that I can transfer to CO. Question: Is CO likely to have awards for a reasonable amount of points, or should I check another *A carrier (such as Lufthansa)? Is there someplace I can look to see all *A award availability, or do I have to call the carrier whose points I'm using? I know it's best to first figure out what flight I want, before I call, but where do I find the available award flights in the first place?
