Well, I just splurged ~350k Delta miles for a round trip in business class to Hawaii for my wife and daughter... That's what flying cross country for 9 months got me.

I was able to go from Ohio to Iceland round trip for 60k, so that's kind of up there. TPG has them at 1.2 cents / mile.

Skypesos are worthless. Had to take an emergency R/T CLT CDG: 60k for AA direct flight in coach, 150k miles for Delta with connection. AA was 60k pretty much for everyday, which is almost surprising considering it is summer time

I booked round trip IAD to CUN in December in delta comfort+ for 65k a couple months ago. I know I could have gotten a lot farther had I transferred them around and put a little more research into it but fuck it.

Just went to Cancun a few weeks ago on Southwest. 43k for a 700 dollar ticket purchased back in April. United and American were both 750-800 bucks. Trust me the flights are just expensive in general

I don't see where on AA website you can search with points....

People jokingly call them Skypesos for a reason...
