Depends on what class of service you're looking for, and what time of year.

Can be 40k, 60k, 100k, or 125k.

Lurker, the bulk of my points are with USAIRWAYS...but here's something I have found using points to book my last two Europe trips. I can fly two people on business class booked through USAIRWAYS using USAIRWAYS miles but on a partner carrier (Star Alliance) for the same mileage I can book one person on USAIRWAYS flights. 80k required for one person each way to fly USAIRWAYS, 40k per person on Lufthansa.

cmcfong, how do you do that -- do you book through Lufthansa using the miles?

I booked through USAIRWAYS. Call their standard reservations number, tell them you want to use your miles to book on a Star Alliance carrier (I am flying Air Canada and United on the Canada flight). You cannot book partner travel on the website. Hope it works for you sf7307.
