    I continue to be perplexed by Delta. My latest issue- I found award availability from Venice on Delta for 70k points. It went Venice to Paris on Air France, and Paris to LAX on Delta one. I tried booking this instead through Air France as I have Chase points and it would cost me ~365K points. What am I doing wrong/not getting here?

    Probably the Paris > LAX segment on DeltaOne isn't being made available to partners, and so you were seeing a rule-buster award on an Air France-operated flight instead?

    Since you have Chase points, you might want to see if the flights are bookable through Korean (they may or may not be). Alternatively, you could get to Paris separately, and the Delta segment is likely available through Virgin Atlantic.

    Unfortunately I think I would need to fly roundtrip with Korean and Virgin. I guess I will see what else I can do. Thanks for your help.
