Is it better to use miles for an award trip or just pay cash?
What would you do?
I am EP on AA ending in March 2024 because I tried switching to Delta (obviously a mistake).
I have an awards trip booked from Boston to Sri Lanka on AA but the routing sucks.
Three flights with messy connections in the winter.
Or, I can buy for $3000 a flexible ticket with good routing and that would get me at least gold for next year.
Is the $3k worth it just to get gold and a better routing?
