howdy folks - i started accumulating miles not long ago and thanks to forums like this, i have enough to book a few tickets... needless to say, i'm not familiar with using my united miles to book efficiently and want to make sure I'm getting on the best flight or partner airline with the least amount of miles spent (it is my mother-in-law after all!) so that being said, what's the best way (and cheapest mile usage) to get my mother-in-law from ho chi minh city, vietnam to los angeles. my wife and I just had a baby, so we're excited to get some help from my mother-in-law, so flying her out here sooner than later would be great although we're very flexible on dates. fyi, she was just granted a visa the other day. thanks a ton for the suggestions!
