AA miles are very versatile on that route: you can go west on Cathay Pacific, or east on Qatar or Etihad. If you can't get enough AA miles for three roundtrips, remember that AA miles and UA miles can both be used for one-way awards too.

Are you expecting to earn these miles and use them for the trip in June or are you planning to use the cost of the trip to meet the minimum spending?

Indeed. If wanting saver awards June 2020 is more realistic. Awards start to become available 355/330 days out. People start looking & booking awards from then.
