I posted a few days ago that my wife and I are adopting a little son from Ethiopia. I have about 250k with Delta which if I can finagle delta.com should get us a business class ticket to ADD. I just read (ht lucky) that Ethiopian Airways completed alignment with the Star Alliance and confirmed that there was award availability direct from IAD-ADD using the ANA tool. Problem is I only have 120k US Airways miles. My wife has an additional 70k but I'm frustrated I can't transfer MR or UR to US Airways. I looked into transferring MR points to SPG then from SPG to US Airways but I loose 2/3 of my points on the transfer to SPG. I don't actually fly US Airways...ever. All my miles are from my Barclay CC and the grand slam. How can I get more miles into my dividend miles account?
