Earlier this year it was announced that Meridiana would be rebranded as Air Italy and Qatar took up a 49% stake. Qatar’s presence is handily felt as their A330-200s are currently operating the US routes, and eventually they will be replaced by Qatar’s 787-8 dreamliners. Once those dreamliners are operating, the routes between Milan and JFK/MIA will be great rides into Italy, and from recent searches there is decent award space available.
Qatar’s CEO has ambitions for One World to absorb Air Italy as a member airline, but that hasn’t happened quite yet. There’s still a way to search and redeem. But how do you find it?
The answer is BA.
BA is a great go-to for One World award space, and it also serves up a hot platter or Italian goodness with Air Italy. While it isn’t the most incredible redemption, at 75k, it’s an option worth considering….especially if Amex is offering a great 40% transfer bonus like they did last year.
