Accumulated miles of questionable value

I have nearly 500,000 miles and wanted to book RT first or business class to Viet Nam in September. Even though the AA web site showed at least 15 possible flights, none were available for mileage use. Even worse. The lowest business class fare was $11,000. Fortunately, I used my standby search and was steered to a Business RT class fare of $4,600 on One World which I booked through the AA website and will get miles. But what good are they?
I used to use my AA Executive card extensively. No more. The latest Economist points out the MidEast airlines are moving in with lower fares and better service. Its time for the US to allow them to compete in the United States.
