i'd like to do a multi-city booking to get the most out of my points. but to keep it simple, our first leg is MFH -> london

this fare is 13k avois points on british airways (transferred 1:1 from chase sapphire preferred at 1.25x) + $200.

the flight, if booked with cash, is $2700 (as are all british airway one-ways operating that day). the cheapest major carrier one-way is air india at $400.

so what do i charge him for the 13K avois points?

if he's a friend and you're traveling with him, the FMV of those points and/or the value of the ticket you're giving him are kinda irrelevant.

he should offer to pay for some of the hotels or offer another gesture as a sign of appreciation

ljl that's why i dont do business with friends. the autism will cause you to lose friends.

how has this come about? does he know you're using points on him? has he offered anything yet?

he shouldnt get you next time. he should have offered NOW.

we're planning a trip together. i have a ton of points, he does not

the value i derive from booking for him is that (a) i wanna use my points and (b) it'd be ideal for us to take the same flights. otherwise he'd understandably book the $400 air india

is (b) because you could share an uber or something? what's the value of (a) to you? wouldn't you be able to put those points toward some other travel and derive a direct benefit if you didn't use them on your friend?

without any $ value of (a) and (b), he owes you whatever fare he would book, so $400 plus taxes, fees, etc.

BEEP BEEP BEEP re "is (b) because you could share an uber or something? "

they're friends. obviously flying together is ideal if you're friends on a trip together.

he came here for beep beep so that's what he's getting. and yeah, it's nice to travel together, but it also kinda doesn't really matter - they'll be sleeping/watching movies, not chatting for 5 hours.

have you discussed this with him at all?

is he willing to pay you $400? would you be happy with $400?

charge him half of a return fare involving that NYC-LHR outbound and a fictitious return leg a week later

reasoning: nobody would pay for an overpriced one-way fare in normal circumstances

or charge him the Air India price

as a non-autist i would suggest to him that he pick up the tab for hotel or nice dinner (though suggest this needs to be at the start of the trip while your gesture is still fresh in his mind....)
