..only to see that they were all gone today. Was going to use the miles to do a multi City one way from Haneda to SEA then back to IAD. But alas had to burn 51500 British Avios and pay $169 for a ridiculous fuel surcharge with taxes/fees only to go as far as SFO. Now need to probably pay out of pocket for my flight from SFO back to IAD
