Not something he should've featured so prominently IMHO.
Got good use out of it when booking my KE trip.
You think that since he posted it KE might change their policy because of overuse?

Or people will start hoarding inventory for the heck of it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Didn't book yet. Just thinking...

It seems from the VS website that you can book JFK-Asia via LHR for 180k + $1500

Does DL allow routing via Europe? If yes, it would be just 140k SkyPesos. Not bad.

Yea, was surprised to see him display a trick so prominently. I wonder what caused him to reveal it.

If something is available on VS is it automatically available to book with DL, or do they have more award space for flying club?

What does it mean to "hold" an itinerary?

(Yes, yes, sorry for my ignorance in this area)

depending on the airline with miles you can put a tikcket on hold. Meaning you have the seat reserved you just need to pay for it a few days later. It varies with each airline
