Well now I just found it for 195K miles round trip, connecting in CDG.

Just remember to keep checking it to see if a 120k award opens up. Being Plat or better helps.

195k is more reasonable than 500k which was a lot of miles.

Agree, I've had low level open up within the week of departure -- of course it now has to be at least 72 hours, but worth checking.
