You were faster than me !

in my case i had these examples

Abu Dhabi = 11,000 Miles*
Santiago = 22,500 Miles*
Havana = 30,000 Miles*

Now offers are available , 50% in eco , and the rest is a mix of prem eco and buisness

Nothing really exciting , , would be better if all these destinations would be available in economy , but its better than nothing

Really quite an interesting offer. I wonder if I could book Moscow through to Geneva on one ticket. Presumably these work in both directions.

Geneva to Moscow starts at 9,500 miles, so booking these offers [8k for MOW-AMS, 3k for AMS-GVA] represents a 15% increase on the price you could otherwise get.

Remember now that all miles pricing is point-to-point, and connecting itineraries are cheaper than the sum of the corresponding direct itineraries. As such, I would be upset if the best I could do on such a routing was the higher price!

Promo Awards on shorthaul are now only really of interest for people originating in, or terminating at, either PAR or AMS. They are not really of interest for connecting pax.

Hang on, I'm struggling to understand your second paragraph. Miles pricing is point-to-point but connecting itineraries are cheaper than the direct ones? Also, I didn't know the Moscow route could be had for so little, relatively. Thanks for the tip.
