I redeemed 60K miles for my mom and grandma in Business from PEK to DPS(Bali) next months, total taxes are $145 per person including $25 partner fees and $20 ticketing fees. Not too bad for a C-class award. Also redeemed 28K Hyatt points for 4 nights at Hyatt Regency Bali Club room.
did a last minutes first class redemption for my wife travel this weekend to Ontario,CA. Outbound on US airways and return on United. Total cost 45K UA miles + $10 taxes
