I have saved up over 1 million FF miles and points in various programs. I use Expert Flyer and subscribe to many RSS feeds about Airline Travel. Over time I have been increasingly disappointed in trying to use my points. I wonder if I am missing something. My family and I are visiting southern Florida in March. We live in KC (MCI). We want to leave on March 14 and return on March 23/24. We could fly into Miami, FLL, Ft. Meyers, Naples, maybe even Orlando. We would like to fly out of FLL or Miami (we have a cruise that is coming back into Miami). I spent hours last night trying to get flights with decent award levels. We have 380K American Miles, 180K Amex points, 180K Chase points, 250K Avios, many hotel points, and a smattering of other points. Here is my frustration: 1) First tried using Avios for AA. They showed NO flights for my 3 days. And I did click through to "Partner Airlines." 2) Looked at American. They had flights, but at the lowest award level the routes were atrocious! Three stops and such. 3) United had no flights at the lowest award level. 4) Delta wanted an amazing number of points. I was flabbergasted. Can anyone offer any advice? I would be most appreciative.
