I am a NY-based Australian who is hoping to travel back to Sydney on my vacation (either via LAX or HKG).
I currently have about 90K Amex points from my AMEX explorer card, 20K Krisflyer and have signed up to the US SPG Amex, and am expecting 30k points in the next 6 months.
Traditionally, I have only flown oneworld (I recently cleared by Qantas FF account) and was wondering whether I should:
Transfer my AMEX, Krisflyer and SPG points (noting that the redemptions on velocity do not seem great)
Transfer all my points to Krisflyer and try and redeem Delta/Virgin Australia flights (I am not keen to fly via Frankfurt and Singapore)
Write-off my 20k SG Krisflyer points and convert to Asia Miles and try and claim a Qantas flight or Cathay Pacific/American Airlines flight?
Thank you so much!
