EWR-LHR is 60K United miles. LHR-EWR is 49K Avios. LHR-EWR via Aer Lingus without points is very expensive, 1286 pounds for 2 tickets, so out of the question.

Thanks for this -- MAN-EWR is a good option, except I don't think I'll be saving much cash. We'd need to take the train from London to Manchester, which would add to the cost. I think all in all,...

Both, it looks like. The cheapest is TAP Portugal, but those flights aren't real. I called up Aeroplan last night and they told me it's a glitch.

Thanks -- so the Skyteam interface on the site is useless? I've seen pics on travel blogs that show flights, so these must just be flights that Delta released for Skypass points?

FYI, via ANA, I was able to bring the fare down to $278.73. 55K, so that's not bad. Still doing UA/OS -- can't seem to avoid it.
