I would like to use my MileagePlus + Ultimate Rewards points (about 300K total) to book award flights for my husband and I to Australia (Adelaide, Sydney, or Melbourne) this holiday season (eg, around 12/17/13 to 1/1/14). I've checked United's website and there are few saver awards and alot of inconvenient routing through Asia. I had hoped for buisnessclass seats, but am now doubting that I can do that. I also don't know if we can tolerate 40 hours of travel and changing planes through Asia. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? My dates are flexible within the range I gave earlier, but I cannot fly outside of the holiday season due to work constraints...and I want to visit family for Christmas. Thanks in advance for any help that you can give me.
