Is there any way I can put 92,000 United Mileage Plus miles toward a trip from San Francisco to Germany (preferably Berlin but Frankfurt is okay)? The trip is this June.

Yes, I waited to long to try to use my United miles to get to Europe this summer. There are three of us traveling together from SFO to Germany (Berlin or Frankfurt) in mid-June. The dates are not all that flexible but basically the last 2 weeks of the month. Looking online, there are no seats available for frequent flyers at this time on United's web site.
I have 92,000 Mileage Plus miles moldering away in my account. Is there anything I can use these miles for that will reduce the cost of the trip? Obviously, it wouldn't have been enough to cover all of us anyway but it would have been nice to get one of the tickets with miles.
Fares are running about $1600 RT right now so anything we can do to chip away at that will be worth it.
