Best options for booking an Air Europa redemption?

Hey all,

I've never flown Air Europa and know very little about the airline. I'm looking to book a business class redemption from MDE - MAD. Can anyone help with the best options for booking a redemption? I have a large stash of Marriott points and also a large amount of UK Amex MR points. Thanks in advance.

Is this not putting the cart before the horse, somewhat? Selecting the airline and redemption first, rather than figuring out what is possible with what you have?

Perhaps I should have phrased the question a bit differently..

I have the option to transfer points from Marriott and or UK Amex MR to all of the following Sky Team airlines: Aeroflot, Aeromexico, Air France/KLM, Alitalia, China Eastern, Delta, and Korean Air. Can anyone with experience of Sky Team / Air Europa redemptions recommend the best option for booking a business class flight with Air Europa from MDE-MAD?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help

Each of those ffp's will/may have different award cost and possibly surcharges
Are you a member of any of those ffp's now?
Have you checked award availability with any of those?
When do you want to travel?

Have you looked as other ffp's for awards on that route?

Does not show all ffp's. May not be AMEX UK in the drop down list, but AMEX USA which may have different partners

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3...tional_Airport Air Europa in list
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...a_destinations MDE is not in the list , COL is and goes to MDE wikipedia link (Wikipedia error?)

<snip>
On 4 November 2019, Iberia, British Airways & Vueling parent IAG announced its €1 billion ($1.1 billion) acquisition of Air Europa in cash from Globalia, the deal should close in the first half of 2020. Air Europa operates 66 aircraft and generated a €100 million operating profit in 2018. The brand will be retained initially within Iberia, IAG expects a return on investment by the fourth year, with full synergies by 2025: intra-group codeshares, Madrid timing adjustments, sales and loyalty programmes alignment. The synergy could propel the Madrid hub into a rival to Paris, London and Frankfurt, and may lead the Europe to the Caribbean and to Latin America markets, also linked to Asia.[13]

That's great thanks! I had forgotten about the awardhacker website. Looking to travel in February, very flexible on date. Only a member of Aeroflot out of the ones I listed currently.
