    Please help me! My wife and I want to go to Australia next December or maybe January (ideally December). We want to fly first, or at least business. We have about 250k AAdvantage miles and maybe 125k Amex points to play with, and we live near LAX but we could leave from elsewhere if it helps. Is this even possible? It seems like premium space on Qantas is basically impossible with AAdvantage miles, but I can't imagine a flight that long in coach. We'd be flexible on dates, but it seems like it's unavailable for virtually any date I check. What can I do???

    @ Sean -- If you book right as the window opens, it shouldn't be impossible to find business class award space on Qantas. Just make sure you're flexible as to the route you fly, since they have service out of Dallas and Los Angeles. Good luck!
