I also know about the option to buy US Airways miles with the current +50% bonus (60k miles would be needed for this trip).
Any other options?
Are you willing to fly on oneworld, instead of *A? If so, call AA and see if they have award seats available on CX or MH. Roundtrip in Business would cost 45K AA miles. AA can hold award seats for five days, while you buy the necessary AA miles. (And I believe that there is a current bonus on purchasing AA miles.)
