Look on e.g. kayak.com/direct and see which flights are operated by partners, or check partner award charts. Then write your own article.

Recent success on an HM booking in Business class one-way AUH-SEZ ~25,000 miles + $24 USD in tax per person. Called the UK line and got a VERY competent agent.

Is there a definitive way to check award availability for Bangkok Airways flights? I don't want to transfer from AMEX MR unless I have a definite use for EY miles.

Did you book 1-way?

I called and was told Oman Air must be return flights, even though the charts listed 1-way values.

One Way tickets are not permitted as per their rules. I am curious too.

That's good to hear.

Maybe a HUACA is needed. 1-way is much easier to deal with compared to return.

Not sure if this was covered before, but has anyone cancelled a partner award ticket? You get the taxes and miles less 2k?

Can't answer that. It didn't take long but not sure about instant.
