Question Advice: SLC to LIS next summer but with which airline??

Just signed up, here's the first thread!

Family and I would like to travel to LIS from Salt Lake City sometime in June/july next summer. I understand that flights aren't all available for next summer yet but I figured I could get help based on airline norms.

Details:

6 people, would prefer to be on the same flight
Economy (cheapest route)
Not picky on direct vs connecting
Currently have miles/points with:
-50k AA
-75k AMEX
-50k United

**Note: we would also like to head from Lisbon to Ponta Delgada for 3 days and was thinking United points would be useful by going through SATA or TAP to get there.


I know this is complex but I'm kinda the guy in charge of telling my family what to do in terms of saving up and applying for credit cards with the right airlines...


THANKS

Lisbon to Ponta Delgada United TAP
EWR - UA TP
MIA - TP
PHL - US (AA merger)

unfortunately to those airports, only US/DL to PHL and DL to EWR

"nvm" [never mind] is not itself listed in the glossary.

The most obvious routing to me is SLC-CDG-LIS on Delta/ Air France. But you don't have miles for that and it would be a hard get.
Most likely you Will have to make two stops. With two stops your options are close to limitless: connect in any domestic hub, connect in any european hub. As for what of those options are best, its silly to discuss in the abstract until you have available flights on the dates you want.

I'm not sure if you are saying these are all the miles you have, but you will be hard pressed to find 6 award seats on one flight
