The Points Guy tells us the best ways to search for award seats for Oneworld, Star Alliance, and Sky Team members.

The Points Guy tells us which airlines can be booked with AVIOS. It's way more than Oneworld partners.

  • Avios are a very valuable points currency. For example: Short haul trips on British Air and its partners cost as little as 7,500 points. This is a super deal for domestic trips on American or Alaska Airlines, for example. I have used them for short trips in Europe and South America (like Buenos Aires to not to be missed Iguasu Falls).
  • Although British Airways charges very high fees for award tickets on its own metal, it does not charge those fees on several of its partners. This makes its Avios (points) especially useful for non-trans Atlantic flights on American Airlines (great for the Caribbean and for Central and South America), and for Alaska Airlines tickets, for example. They can also get you trans Atlantic trips and Aer Lingus with very low fuel surcharges. And if you have an Iberia Avios account that's been open for 90 days and has some activity in it, you can move British Airways Avios over to Iberia, and use points in the Iberia account to redeem for Iberia flights with much lower fuel surcharges.
  • So check out the good credit card offers of AVIOS for British Air, Iberia, and Aer Lingus. Remember that AVIOS from the three airlines can be combined, giving us a possible total of up to 300,000 AVIOS. That should get us to most places in the world in comfort and/or lots of sort term flights.

In addition to its personal credit card, Korean Air has a business card. Seems to be the same offer: 30K miles. I see no reason why you can't get both.

7/7/2022 Credit Cards The Blue Cash Everyday Card from American Express increased its bonus to $200. It has nice cash back offers: 3% at U.S. supermarkets on up to $6,000 per year in purchases, 2% at U.S. gas stations & select U.S. dept stores, 1% on other purchases. No annual fee. 0% intro APR on purchases for 15 months.
7/6/2022 Credit Cards The personal Hawaiian Airlines credit card now offers 70,000 miles, but no longer waives the annual fee for the first year. The business card still offers 80K miles. I see no reason why you can't get both. Find links to them here.
Hawaiian's award chart say you can get from the west coast to Hawaii for as little as 17,500 miles), and inter-island flights cost only 7,500 miles. With its partners it seems to be expanding into the far east. For example, its partner award chart says that you can get from North America to Japan on JAL for 45,000 miles, or round trip to Korea for 100,000 miles.
