Thinking about Asia again and want to fly in F

So for those of you who travel on points if I want to head back to Asia in F which are the best programs to work on building points with/credit cards to get. Last time I did China I used AA miles to redeem a CX flight. Sadly there was a massive AA deval when it came to CX and that is no longer feasible even though I have about 68k AA miles. I have 86k+ American express MRs, around 25k+ Citi TY points, 56k Chase URs, 121k marriott points and 40k spg points. I'm just wondering on where I can focus my spend for a reasonable F redemption even if it requires consolidating points from a variety of programs like I did with SQ. I note that barclays is coming out with AA cards, nd I could look at alaska airline cards from BoA. New Chase cards are out for awhile still with the exception I might go for the ritz card and then next fall go for the CSR. I would be flying out of NYC to Asia.

Re: Thinking about Asia again and want to fly in F

I saw a bunch of business class redemptions on Korean Air via Delta which can be had with Amex MR. Only F on the American legs but 160k round trip is not bad. I ended up going with a 194k deal because the days cost more but was all free mostly from 100k Plat, 50k PRG and 25k ED sign up bonuses.

I am probably doing sq and Korean air when I go back to Thailand in 2018 probably both in business. I did asiana business and Cathay in first was quite nice earlier this year .
