Any suggestions for EWR/JFK-SNN/DUB?

Trying to book award travel through UA for travel on 9/11 returning 9/17. I realize that UA metal will not get me there and am encouraging the 1K desk to get creative with very little success. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just a thought ... try UA flight IAD-FRA or IAD-ZRH so you can tap into the 1k supply of award tickets. but most direct seems LH JFK-FRA-DUB

...the big question really is which is your preferred destination, Shannon or Dublin since you're just going to be here for approx a wk.
PHL-SNN is the most obviously direct route but if you have to depart NY, then JFK-IAD-PHL-DUB is all on UA metal ... unfortunately it isn'e available as an option on 9/ll but is on 9/10 and at least that gets you to Irl ON the 11th!!! Start hols a day early?!? Hope the 1K staff start working with you on this and that you get to come to Ireland.
