    It would help to know where are you stationed and what are your origin airports...

    LAN had some great fares to MVD this summer, about $450 rtn a/i ex-MIA. Easy 8.6K EQMs plus more for your flights to/from MIA. Best to strategically plan ahead if you're going to be at the threshold of ExecPlat. When a fare like this shows up, grab it!

    Without knowing where you are based, I would still say look at flights to ANC...the price point is usually pretty good, and at worst you are looking at 6-8K unless you are on the west coast, and then less. Where are you flying from?

    If you want something a bit more exotic China has been (relatively) cheap lately, though you'll need to deal with JL or a visa on a short trip.

    I like Anchorage and love Alaska. But exotic it is not. :p

    There should be AA and BA special fares between now and November. However, there is no way to predict the details till they are announced. Just be ready to buy quickly when one comes: 10K can be done in one international or a few domestic trips.

    I'd be factoring in my time and not just price You can do two or more trips to the airport and around airworld domestically or one same day turn international or maybe one international with a few days on the ground for a vacation. (<--- I need to do this!)

    I picked up a 752 r/t fare to SCL from LAX. 12k miles which combined with other booked trips makes my 100k for the year. Santiago is amazing. I used miles to reserve nice suite for the two nights i'll be there and am pleased. try SCL.
