What is the likelihood of CX ORD-HKG F or J partner award opening up in August?
Trying to decide between booking KE F JFK-ICN-HKG (available) with 80k UR versus CX Y JFK-ORD-HKG+ with AA with the hope that F or J open up. Rather burn AA than UR and with AA award I can add another destination at same price (don't need stopover).
Also, if I book CX JFK-ORD-HKG (Y) and JFK-HKG opens up (any class) can I switch flights without a fee?

Was looking at LHR-AUH.
Anyway, more interested now in AUH-IAD F during August (on 787). Seems like ALL F is blocked out during summer (July-Aug). I can find F quite consistently in June and September, but not one date in July-August. I have checked at Saver and and Freedom levels and on many flights there are 8 seats available (the entire cabin!) but no Guest F available, which means they are simply not releasing F seats at the moment for summer travel on that route. Do you see something different?

Is the DDMS laptop HP Pavilion 13.3″ Touch-Screen Core i3 2-in-1 Laptop For $299.99 Shipped From Best Buy a good deal?
Is it a decent laptop for light/moderate office work (Internet, MSOFFICE, photo management/uploading (not necessarily editing))?

So, what is the consensus minimum time to wait between AORs? Chase, Amex, Citi?

Fine. We'll let it slide this time.

Sounds like a heck of a routing. All EY there and all QF back?
Where do you see F Guest availability on A380? I checked many dates and cannot find a single seat (only on 77). I can't even find Guest J on A380. 

I didn't see a charge and just received a cancellation emaill

How long after AOR is reasonable to apply again (and expect approval) with Chase, Amex and/or Citi (average FICO)?

787 is brand new product. F is Suites (not apartment as in A380). J is same as A380, allegedly best business product on market (have not been). Reports are that F hard product is only marginally superior to J in new 787.

Can I apply and get approved for Citi Hhonors Reserve and get the weekend certs now if I just got approved for regular Citi Hhonors Visa 3 weeks ago? If not, how long do I need to wait? Advantages to striking now vs waiting? (would like the certs soon)

I still don't get why people think Hilton points are so useless. I looked at the charts and category 1 starts at 5k.. Am I missing something?
Compared to other chains, the higher tier hotels are expensive (in points).  For lower end hotels, which are often 3 star or lower Hilton points can indeed be useful.  But then you aren't getting that much value for your points.  As Dan always says the biggest bang for your buck in the points world is for aspirational products, which would often be otherwise out of reach for most people in this game.
In this regard, Hilton points generally fall short. 
There are exceptions and sometimes you can find great deals based on how hotels are categorized.  An example might be Doubletree Kuala Lumpur. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but for 10,000 Hhonors points it's a good deal.

According to Aadvantage rep yesterday: You can no longer match accounts between US and AA.  In the next few days (I believe through 3/28), all Dividend Miles accounts will be converted to Aadvantage accounts.  If you matched already, then it will automatically merge with existing AA account.  If not, your DM account will become a NEW AA account and you can then (at some point), merge the new AA account with a previously existing AA account.
