I needed to find a way to and from California. our 5 week summer trip to the Pacific
I used American Airlines miles to fly to Tonga and home from Vanuatu. Those flights started and ended in California. Since we live in NYC and AA didn’t have saver awards from NY-LA and SF-NY, I had to look at other options or I would’ve had to pay around 30,000 miles per person each way.
Considering our international flight cost 80,000 round trip, how could I pay 60,000 to go from NYC – Cali?

I also have 54,500 Virgin America points. I transferred 40,000 SPG points there over the summer due to
