I would like to start planing our next trip; and want to to hit London & Bali. We have ~118k AA miles each (This is for me and the new wifey) & have enough SPG to transfer to get 130k we'll need to use AA OW Explorer that will allow us to fly 20k in Business. My Current thinking is doing LAX - LHR - KUL; HKG- LAX which would be about 19309 miles on AA/MH/CX and then do KUL - DPS - HKG via Avios which should be about 10k/12.5k per person in Y. Are there any other options that I should consider? Will I be able to interline bags at KUL/HKG or should I plan on spending a night at each? This is not till our 1yr anniversary so I have about 1 full year to plan/book this guy. Alternatively ... JFK- HKG; DPS- KUL - LHR - JFK would work too, but then HKG-DPS via Avois will be cheaper but then we'll need to get to NYC (We can use Southwest RR Points for that but more time wasted) OR :: ORD - HKG; DPS- KUL - LHR - ORD [HKG-DPS via Avios] // LAX <-> MDW via WN --- We want to stay 6 nights in LHR and 3/4 nights in DPS. Total trip length is 2 weeks (We get 10 working days PTO) so depending upon when availability is it can last between 11 to 16 days.
