Point transfer advice needed

I am planning on transferring some points from my credit card to an airlines. Among Turkish, Thai, and Eva, which one has a better program for award tickets?
Please advise. Thanks in advance.

I'm not familiar with any of those programs, but my guess is that people who are familiar with them would want to know what routes -- and in what class of service -- you would hope to redeem miles for.

What routes? Class of travel? When?
For awards best to find out the procedure for getting an award. And the detailed rules for awards. Do not assume anything. It may not be easy as with USA airlines (who use the English language)

For a guide for some ffp's look at AwardHacker But also consider award cash surcharges if any

Be mindful of expiry Miles/Points that Do and Don't Expire. Click to open the wiki.

The grass in not always greener on the other side. Even after the upcoming UA changes.

I don't have a specific route. I just wanted to know which airline I can maximize my points. I will check the links you provided. Thanks.

I suggest you look at their award charts once you have decided where to go. As always, it depends.

In some alliances, availability can be much better if you're using miles of the operating carrier. Inn some cases availability is better if you're an elite in the program.

If you plan to use an award booking service, don't transfer miles until they tell you what to do.
