After three nights at the spectacular Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, it was time to fly to Athens, the last stop on our five country European adventure. While I had visited Greece earlier this summer, in this case we were just briefly returning for a wedding.
How I redeemed miles for Aegean Airlines business class
We needed to fly from Amsterdam to Athens, and fortunately Aegean Airlines had plenty of award availability on the following flight:
07/22 A3625 Amsterdam to Athens departing 12:05PM arriving 4:20PM
Aegean Airlines is part of the Star Alliance, so we were able to redeem Air Canada Aeroplan points (transfered from Amex Membership Rewards) for this reservation. The ticket cost 25,000 Aeroplan points plus $73 in taxes & fees per person. While not my best award redemption ever, it was convenient, and an economy ticket would have cost over $300 per person.
