Back in November or so I asked about getting business class Delta tickets to Italy for fewer miles than were quoted at the time. We really wanted to use the miles to fly KLM through AMS and on to Italy.

You gave me some advice about how to look at KLM's website to see what they had before calling Delta, and insisting on th rep finding flights we could see. Our first attempt just before Christmas was a disaster, with a rep who must have been incompetent. But fortunately we did not buy that intinerary, which was supposedly going to cost us around 225K miles!

We waited until today, and got a rep who really knew his stuff, and he got us bus tickets from SFO-AMS-FCO Oct 1 and FCO-AMS Oct 20 and AMS-LAX-SFO on Oct 25. Only the LAX-SFO leg is not in bus. GREAT!!! And the mileage cost? 100K!

Thanks, everyone, for the clues that made this work!!
