    Hi everyone :). I'm looking to book tickets to SE Asia in February (currently in Alaska) to travel around for 3 months time & then return to AK. I have around 160,000 delta miles & 100,000 US airways miles. I may be silver medallion in 2015 but not sure yet I'm willing to go any route needed so its free:) Any advice would be much appreciated!
    In the past I've never been able to redeem miles for any good deals...

    OK, do you want economy only, or is business or first class desired? Are you willing to supplement with paid cash flights for short flights (like, say, Bangkok to Siem Reap)?

    You have enough miles to book Alaska->SE Asia, Australia->Alaska on Delta in business class as an open-jaw round trip. The problem is that both US Airways and Delta only allow round-trips at the moment, meaning you'd end up wasting miles on a return leg were you to book with them, but you might be able to book something like this:

    Delta: ANC-SEA(AS)-HKG(DL)
    US Airways: HKG-BKK(stop, CX)-KUL-SYD(destination, MH)-HKG(unused return, CX)
    Delta: SYD-LAX(DL or VA)-ANC(AS)

    You would then need to do your flying out of BKK (relatively central place to visit Cambodia, Indonesia or Kathmandu).

    The problem is what would REALLY come in handy here are any award currency where one ways are available (ideally something like British Airways Avios where the short flights cost a small amount of Avios).

    I'm ok with supplementing money if needed & either class flying is ok too. Unfortunately have bulk of my miles with Delta, US & a few other US carriers only. I figure I can get around pretty cheap from BKK & use the miles to get over to SE Asia & back to AK.....
    Thanks for help :)
