    Hi friends I have a situation in which I would greatly appreciative your knowledge and expertise with.

    I need to book a Business Class award ticket from LAX to LHR for myself and one companion. We need to arrive into LHR on Wednesday July 31st.

    I’m looking for the best “bang for our buck” - we would prefer non-stop but are not opposed having to go through 1 city too.
    We have 2 million points on Amex Platinum Travel and 387,000 on Alaska Award Travel.

    What are our best options for such?

    Thank you so much!

    Hey Nicky! For specific flights/dates like this, your best options are probably going to be the ones with award space. Realistically, summer travel from California to Europe will require either a few connections, or pretty high surcharges, although if you wait to book until the day before sometimes there are more options.

    This is the type of situation where I really like the JuicyMiles tool -- it should give you a sense of the options available, so you can decide on the tradeoffs.
