Thanks for the inspiration though.

Your tickets on it itself were inspired on my asia trip (quoting PT), and happened earlier in time.

I only tried to get a bit modest during elul.

I'm assuming all UA miles
How long did you spend in each place?
What kind of car is that qr special services? Mercedes S500?
How many agents did you go through to find one who would book this for you

UA, correct.

Its a BMW 7 series.

Maybe 3/4 reps per tix.

TLV-FRA-MUC-DOH-PVG-PEK-HGH-CAN-SIN-MNL-TPE-NRT HND-BKK

Almost all F. Spent around a day everywhere except FRA, MUC, DOH, and CAN.

65k for a TLV-BKK one way.

Only thing I regret is not terminating in India and making it only 40k

QR drives you to the plane on connecting flights?
Seemed to be only on originating or arriving flights...

Only F pax.

I got is as well. There is a separate door on the plane, was really odd as I was the only F pax.

Departing is by bus for biz pax.

Talking bout LunaTix, anyone got more than 12 segments on one UA ticket?

Seems they need to issue two E-ticket numbers....

The buses seem much more spacious than any BMW if youre the only pax, no?

@ ozi, don't know, but it might be an advantage, if second eTix is made to start Sunday, you can have more than 24h stop, if changing just this eTix.
Title: Re: SF's BRU-TLV-BRU report (for LunaTix only)
Post by: PlatinumGuy on August 31, 2012, 03:28:14 AM
I had a few stops over 24 hours.

@ozi, there's a premium terminal, for biz/f, they take by bus from there to the plane. The bus is actually very crowded.

As arriving F, I was driven to the PCT by BMW 7.

Post by: SuperFlyer on August 31, 2012, 03:37:02 AM
There is a bus for the biz (I was actually first, but maybe cuz I arrived very late I was also dropped on it), which looks like those regular airport busses which are wide with low floors, except they just have some 10 sofas to sit on.

What was the point - was this the cheapest way to get home  ??? or just a way to get tons of touring in? You reserved an award ticket in coach and get F because of status?

Thanks for explaining this for the uninitiated  :D

Is it usually a problem when booking a ticket with so many legs to have some stopovers longer than 24 hours??

i know about this, that you can make many stopovers on one award ticket, but i dont know much about how to do it etc..
can someone refer me to a thread or explain to me how you book such a ticket?

Yup. What is the point, the shtick of making more stop-overs, being in more airports? I'm with you on that... What else?
Title: Re: SF's BRU-TLV-BRU report (for LunaTix only)
Post by: SuperFlyer on September 02, 2012, 03:04:31 PM
Well, as I wrote, I was close to 24h in each.

For me in non-world cities, that's enough to visit the city.

If I like the place, or I missed part, I can come back (and do sometimes).

Experiencing more biz or first class products
See more cities
Enjoy more kosher packaged meals
If they make a mistake or bump you, recoup the cost of the entire trip
Etc
