PLEASE help orient a newbie! Need to travel in 2 weeks

I've got about 250,000 Amex points, over 400K Delta, 100 K on a few other domestic.

We're desperately trying to go JFK-Nairobi, at least in Business, 11/10-11/27 or28. Is Globalpass REALLY the 'transfer bank" it seems? BA seems to have business tix...how does one access?

Sorry, i'm a sophisticated FF buff, but GP is 'beyond me'!

Do NOT transfer points in GlobalPass in order to go the Africa using KLM.

With BA you're able to see on their website available seatson and you'll be able to redeem your miles without it going into a GlobalPass black hole.

Your chances of getting the flight you want with GP on KLM, are virtually impossible and you will be stuck with many points in a program with dwindling participation.
