    Any ideas about what airline could be used on a points redemption for a one way to barcelona. Preferably one that transfers from Starwood, or a partner of American or Delta. My parents want to go. Usually they go coach but I would consider maybe finding them business class or similar?

    For a o/w ticket, I would say to transfer your SPG to an AA account and redeem it on either AA metal or IB metal via MAD.

    It's unfortunate that SPG to UA is 2:1.

    Why a partner of AA and not AA itself? If they're going off season I think they even discount the award miles! (I recently added a mia-cdg to a sfo=mia b/c it was only 15k miles more -rt! But it was in coach would have been nicer in business)

    You are correct AA would be fine. When is the busy season to go there? Summer?

    The off peak awards are only for coach awards which is why I didn't say that.

    There should be good availability on AA for milesaver in the norther hemisphere winter months and it routes via MIA or JFK. Seems to me that the don't open up milesaver unless it's far in advance or close in these days though.
