Some routes are harder than others.

-Anything to Tel Aviv nonstop from the US in saver business.
-Anything to Hawaii in lie-flat seats in saver business
-Lufthansa First class more than 2 weeks out.
Etc.

Go :)

Oh trust me, I thought about it.



 (Sort of still thinking about it.)
 But I'd rather go Jan/Feb/March when I can't feel my fingers anymore. :)

I want to go lie flat NYC-Hawaii in August, when would be the best time to find availability? If someone has expanded access, can they book for me?

United's "p.s." BusinessFirst service, JFK-LAX, is extremely difficult to come by. At least 2 seats are available on:

Nov. 13, 15, 17, 19
Jan. 19
Sep. 6

...and that's it for the rest of the year. :o

LAX-JFK is even worse: there are 2 seats (or more) available only on Nov. 18 - and that's all.

Feb 19 has 1 seat available,
though IME they open up more space within a week of the flight

+8. And Plan B works very well on this route as well.
