Hey all, I'm wondering about something and didn't find anything via forum search that directly addressed this type of situation... I have a bunch of US miles and am planning to redeem for a 2-person trip to Europe this summer. (probably a multi-city itinerary, PHL-AMS and BUD-PHL). I'd like to redeem in business, but am OK with economy if it's nice (for example, I've flown LH economy and found it comparable to US domestic first, which is more or less acceptable to me for this flight length). And I'd rather fly with a partner airline than with US. What I'm wondering is, should I try to book while US is still in Star? Or wait until they leave it, and book the award on a oneworld partner? What do you see as the pros/cons to each? What would you do in my shoes and why? Thanks!
