Closer to you than me :P

(Yes, AKL is farther than MLE, but I've never been to AKL.)

NYC-MLE is ~22 hours. ZRH-MLE is ~14 hours.
NYC-PPT is ~16 hours ZRH-PPT is ~25 hours.

What's perfect for someone in EU isn't what's perfect for someone in the US...

OK, here is what I'd like to do so far:

CMB-HKG-JFK(stop)-YVR in CX F <-- this is pretty much the only thing I don't want to change as I'd like to do the JFK-YVR leg for free at some point)*

If I were to fly EWR-SIN in SQ F what should the middle of my itin be?

SIN for a 2-3 days then...?

Ranking CNX, PVG, HKG, BKK, HKT which fits best with the above?



*If I did change, I'd change the whole itin to *A, and use the "free one way" to HNL at some point.

PEK > SIN?

Also, how do you recommend getting around Asia once I land in SIN (or if you're suggesting that PEK>SIN, then possibly PEK).

Looking for thoughts on blowing 250K SPG on two RT tix JFK-DXB-BKK in EK F?

Discuss.

Why BKK over someplace like AKL?
