One day I will get someone to look in my mind and scream at me “WHY???” very loudly when I plan my trips.
Once again, I need to head to the Windy City. And of course, LHR-ORD is just boring ;). So I attempt as usual to spice it up a tiny bit.
Part of my problem is BMI and where to dump my miles next. And it’s a bigger problem as my next trip is when IAG has planned to swallow up British Midland Airways. The other problem is that I’m having to stick to Star Alliance also due to the fact I have a *small* amount of luggage to tote with me (as I have no OneWorld status yet).
The was the option of flying Delta/Air France/KLM, but that’s just not me ;).
So here’s the map for those who need comedy.

But the big question remains – where to dump the miles? Yes they’re Low Economy Fare tickets (K).
- Aegean will offer 50% on the UA legs but nothing on the AC leg
- Miles and More will give 50% on the UA ‘s 100% on the AC leg (with a 25% Exec Bonus)
- I haven’t even LOOKED at Asiana or Aeroplan yet…
- And Mileage Plus? 50k is a very hard slog for a year…
Umm. Your thoughts please.
And no, dumping them in Diamond Club isn’t an option this time as the trip is towards the end of March…..
