Lucky recently wrote about transferring points/miles to ANA and redeeming those on Virgin Atlantic for Upper Class. I didn't know this trick and was glad to read it, but it got me thinking - what are some other partner mileage redemption strategies to help us maximize the power of the miles we collect on *A? I'm looking at gleff and Lucky here since I read (and quite enjoy - thanks, guys!) both of their blogs daily so I know that they know more strategies, but any and all would be welcome to comment here. I think this would be valuable information to have collected here in a sort of "1-stop shop" type thread for future reference.
