The german SMS says no routing between TXL and NYC at this date anymore at all with all the SkyTeam partners.
I'm not trying to bring a negative tone to a positive thread, but a quick calculation tells me that about 1/3 of the posters so far have obtained SkySaver tickets in coach on domestic routes. The far majority of posts have been FC or BE. It will be interesting to see as more people post.

The only thing I think we can conclude so far is something we all already know. Your miles are easiest and most efficiently used for FC/BE International or Domestic.

It will be interesting to watch how this thread evolves as more people post.

For myself:

2 BE to ATL FCO
1 BE to ATL IST
1 BE to ATL LGW

4 AVL DSM Northwest (SkySaver Coach)
4 CLT DEN Continental (SkySaver Coach)
