Looks like you’ll just need to do mile runs to Europe. Set up alerts with google flights or kayak for when prices drop below a certain point you’re comfortable with (within alt travel price).

O really? We’re able to go anywhere. Op, guess it depends on what firm you’re at haha

You could unnecessarily connect in CLT a bunch but you’ll burn a bunch of time. I concur with the tips though to take a vacation or mileage run abroad in premium economy. Assume you’re doing OK on EQDs?

It’s busier than it’s designed for but i have fewer delays connecting through it and PHX than any other hubs in the US.

You need to do a mileage run if you’re gunning for EXP; Europe would get you around 6-7K EQMS roundtrip. Asia would get you essentially double coming from the east coast. Also don’t forget, PE fetches 1.5 the EQM so that is usually worth the price variance

Look at Premium Economy flights from the West Coast to HKG. You can usually find these for around $600-$700
