What has been the pattern in past years for Black Friday sales?

Which airlines give discounts, what kind, and when do they typically start?

I think only the low cost ones do anything

Is it better to pay $140 for a ticket or 12,500 miles?

IOW, what is the general philosophy of when to pay and when to use miles?

BUMP

BA's inventory is empty for my dates, and SIA's is negligible.  Are there any other pairs?

I learned the advantages of booking with Krisflyer miles for flights on UA and just recently booking with Avios for AA instead of directly with AA.  Are there any other airline pairs like this?

Depends on the route, every program has different award charts, so you need to see who charges the least for that route and book through that program.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
