most of the value comes from redeeming business or first class. for example, i redeemed 52,500 + $319 in taxes for a business class flight from Athens to NYC (with a connection in Frankfurt). I was flying in August, which is peak season, so that ticket was probably worth $7,000, so to me that's worth it. They are both pretty long flights, especially the Frankfurt - NYC leg (~8 hours), so that's a great redemption for me.
