I think that some of the questions in this thread could be answered by playing around with the Economical Excursionist Travel Tool- a fun way to pass the time! It doesn't help with YQ or availability though
Wow, that's cool! Thanks

Why do you need to add and pay for a lap child on a domestic flight? Aren't they free??

Infants are free domestic. Just show up early and add infant.

Hmmm seems like 47.5K/75K in Y/J. Many airlines are cheaper than that.

It is.

You said you wanted a nice J/F product. To Italy the nicest product is Emirates. You can fly UA J, best would be to book with AC probably. Or you can fly AA with AA miles. Very hard to find availability for both of these. Or al Italia.

Is the cheapest / best way  LHR to NYC round trip
On american in business 100,000 american points round trip plus about $350 in taxes.
Or on united ANA points will be 63k round trip plus about $350 taxes.  ?
