Hi, I'm struggling at the moment to get my fiancee from MSN - DTW on the evening of June 9, returning on June 12th. I found a RT flight for 40,000 miles + $7.50, but it's not ideal (going through MSP and getting into DTW at 12:40am) and seems like a lot of miles. Actually, all the flights around this time seem really expensive, even from MKE. Is there any hope that they'll release some 25,000 mile tickets? Can I use my soon to be father in law's platinum account to book the award ticket, then redeposit it at a later time so that I can grab the award ticket on my account? I'd hate to lose the chance to get this for an almost reasonable amount because I was holding out for the 25k award. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm actually taking that weekend to take my first mileage run: MSN - HND for 40,000 miles or thereabouts, so I'm pretty excited about that. Ridiculous that it would cost about the same for the ticket from MSN - DTW as MSN - HND!
