ANA Unique Value Partner Awards

One Mile at a Time points to some interesting redemption offers from ANA, which are especially useful as ANA is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner.

In addition to special awards discussed in the past on this blog and on lucky’s, like Virgin Atlantic Upper Class New York – London for 63,000 miles, this entry points out:

  • New York-JFK or Washington-Dulles to Doha on Qatar in business class for 90,000 miles.
  • New York-JFK or Newark to Brussels on Jet Airways in business class for 68,000 miles (or onward to Dehli for 105,000 miles).

ANA does impose taxes and fees greater than US-based carriers, to be sure. And their phone agents aren’t always the best to work with. But they do have some unique partnerships and their distance-based award chart can be a blessing on specific routes (although is also a killer on others).
