There are options in both economy and business class, with economy flights setting you back 18,750 miles one way or 37,500 miles round trip, while business awards cost 46,875 miles one way or 93,750 miles round trip. If you're in Canada, you're in luck — however flights out of New York are available as well. Sure, it is only a 25% discount, but we'll take it.
