    My friends looking to go to Venice and Belgrade and has 118,000 AS miles. She wants to go in business class, but I think shes a bit short. Any ideas on how best to do this ? I don't think any of Alaska's partners fly in/out of Belgrade, so she might end up buying her way to Belgrade from Venice, which is fine.

    SLC.
    I looked up availability and I can see flts are available going there that are decent....but coming back sucks, as it requires an overnight stay.

    Heck I'd say take the 1pm departure from JFK the following day and enjoy a night in NYC :)

    I agree with timfrost, assuming she has to fly from VCE. Flights from MXP might be better. Train between the two cities might only take about 2 hours.

    Edit: Nevermind, looked at flights from MXP & FCO and it looks like VCE is better.

    Find air France availability from the west or east coast.
