I can't even believe I'm typing this, but we've found a wonderful place to stay at a reasonable price, and now I'm trying to figure out the flight options. If we completely scrap the Ireland portion of our trip (which is looking more and more likely), then we can fly directly into FCO from DFW, JFK or ATL. Can I use FF miles to book those? Right now I['m waiting for American Airlines to call me back "so you don't have to be on hold" for over FOUR HOURS!, and I need to ask a bunch of questions, but I think I'm on the verge of committing to Umbria for September and October!!!
