Business class seats from LAX to SGN . How?

Good afternoon!

I'm having a hard time finding the best way to use miles for a roundtrip in business class from Los Angeles (LAX) to Ho Chi Minh / Saigon / Tan Son Nhat International (SGN). I have American Express Membership and Marriott Bonvoy points I can use and transfer. I tried calling in to Japan Airlines and Asiana but didn't get much help at all after their 1.5 hr waiting period.

Would any of you happen to know which airline would be best to transfer the points to for redeeming business seats for a flight from LAX to SGN?

Thank so much for the help and tips!

Easiest to open an account with ANA and JAL to just check availability yourself online. Air Canada is an option too (using AC miles to book ANA).

AMEX points can be used directly to purchase a ticket (100 points equals 1 dollar). Simply book at travel.americanexpress.com.

How many points do you have? When do you want to travel? Is this only for you?

Finding 9 business class awards on the same flight is going to be a challenge. You may consider splitting people up on different routings.

I would say very close to impossible. The chance of winning the lottery grand prize is higher.
