  • A U April 26, 2019

    Would like to know type and amount of points used for the award tickets.

  • Ric Garrido April 26, 2019

    @A U – only one award ticket. 30,000 AAdvantage miles + $132 to fly Krakow-Madrid-SFO in economy.

    Airfare was so cheap in 2018 that I only needed one award flight to get home from Poland in August in the week before low fares were available from Europe to USA.
