US Airways Dividend Miles. Buy miles and redeem - much cheaper than buying J and F outright.

Thank me later.

Provided abvailability exists when you want to redeem.  Alaskan points aren't bad either! :-)

Yes, you end up needing to be flexible - but it works for holidays.

Its pot luck  need to search various FF programs to find award seats and usually haveto call up. Be flexible helps.

The further out you wish to fly the better the chnaces. I found two J seats to HKG using AS miles in Jan for May last.

Agree with the book as far in advance as possible comments.

Last two FF Point trips have involved me seeing no availability in a morning and afternoon of the same day only for them to become available later that evening.
