Expert Tips...

You can create an open jaw and see two destinations, just by adding a one way ticket within Europe to connect up your cities. If you book British Airways, you can also upgrade any Business Class ticket to First Class if there's "award space", better known as seats with miles available. All you'll need is 20,000 miles each way, no copay. That's an incredible opportunity.
