Does it allow routing via the US?

EDIT—looks like it does! I'm seeing MIA routings.

SJO too. Not as many miles but cheaper. Some routings have an airport change in London.

Reply to self; looks like it's possible to do a long stopover in LON (as in BCN-LON early Aug, then LON-SJO early Sept).

There are also some nice prices to Mexico which is usually a very high-priced destination. Its about 1600eur, but if you travel in July, keep in mind the 25000 transatlantic bonus.

My question is: has anyone found an openjaw Spain-GUA/PTY // MEX-Spain, without transiting US? It seems that TATL to/from MEX is fine on IB, but not to other destinations...
