USA to anywhere [J award for five] on AA metal only

If you had unlimited AA miles and lived in the USA where would you go from the USA on AA metal only for a party of five vacation and would like to fly F or 77w biz flatbeds?

Does the 77w destination have to be your final stop, or is a connection from there OK?

AA only flies the 77w to a few cities... LHR, SYD (coming soon), and some in South America. I think somewhere in Asia too but I haven't kept up with that.

Right now it's London, Hong Kong, and Sao Paulo. Sydney starting in December.

HKG and then connect elsewhere in SE Asia. But hopefully "unlimited" means over 1 million: saver awards J or F are extremely rare, so you're looking at minimum 280k in J or 360k in F per person roundtrip.

Just don't look for MileSAAver awards for five on the same flight with any airline. AAnytime awards on AA are always available, but with demand-based pricing that could exhaust a stash of miles quickly.

Also note the 787 and the refurbished 763, and refurbished 772 (currently only 7 of 47) also have all aisle access horizontal beds.

Sydney. No question.

I wouldn't want to take a flight that long in coach, for one thing. And the destination is incredible. I'd go back to Australia in a heartbeat.
