    Lucky---I am planning on going to Australia around Xmas and NYE. I have about 700k aa miles, 240k ua miles and 100 Csp points. Any chance that a family of 3 could go business class from SFO-SYD. I would not want to route through Asia but happy to fly out of LAX. Is something PointsPro could help me out with or is it tough given the lack choices? Thanks!

    @ Alok -- Sadly this is one of those cases where Delta miles would be most valuable, as they partner with Virgin Australia. If you're not willing to route through Asia you're limited to Qantas and United, and neither release very much premium cabin space. I'm afraid the only realistic option would be to have Delta miles or route through Asia, unfortunately.
