Then the question is flawed, as AA doesn't control TN award availability.

Either way, the answer is no.
I apologize for the flawed question. I assumed that when I mentioned AA that those who have flown or looked into flying to PPT would understand my question. But, I guess not...

Is this from your own experience? Because EF seems to show a lot more availability for the upcoming week. Whereas, as expected, looking out a month there is barely any availability.

Means Air Tahiti booked on AA.
Sorry! Thought this was obvious.

Does AA start opening up availability closer to flight time for LAX-PPT for either Y or J?

Gotcha. Thanks for the response. Thinking about using the Amazon 20% off for $100 off a drone
Was thinking of doing the same! Just not sure I can justify, just yet, having two drones.

That's what I've been seeing. I would be taking amateur pictures/videos and all for personal use. Does it fly as well as the pro? Has anyone tested them both? @SF?
Should fly just as well from the several reviews Iíve read and people Iíve spoken to. As for the image quality I donít know if itís better or worse but if you donít care about pro grade image then Iím sure youíll be fine with whatever comes out on either the Pro or the Air.

What are the key differences between the Mavic Pro and the Mavic Air? I'm seeing a solid price difference, and a slightly shorter flight time with the Air, but am having trouble finding a solid side by side of the specs. I don't need pro grade pics and vids, just want high quality which it seems I'll be getting regardless. TIA
I have the pro but if you donít care much about pro grade pics then Iíd probably get the Mavic Air fly more package. Considering getting it as well! They have some cool flight video features that the Mavic pro doesnít and  it seems to be much more portable then the pro.

For how long do people go to Thailand? Is 5 days enough? Or save when you have 10 available?
I did it in 7 days and was happy with the time although I definitely would have been able to see more with an additional 2-3 days. It really all depends on where you want to go in Thailand. If your only interested in seeing Koh Samui and Chiang Mai then 5 days could be enough. But, if you want to see Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, Bangkok... then obviously youíd need more time.
 In 7 days I was able to fit Koh Samui, Bangkok, Phi Phi islands, and Chiang Mai. Although, some might argue that I did not truly experienced each city as I rushed through some of them.

Up In The Air / Re: AA Basic Economy

Took the risk of booking Basic Economy with 3 bags. My wife and I both got to check in one with AA CC and for the last one we were meant to pay at the gate.
 Seems to be they can only tell your flying basic economy when boarding if it says boarding group 9 on the boarding pass. Since the CC gets you to group 5 you should be able to get a carry on for free! Just worked a couple minutes ago for us.

1 Night at the Conrad BOB paying $1,300 with BMG cert

Booked 5 nights at SR BOB a while ago for 420k SPG hoping that a standard room will open up for me to switch too but nothing has so I think I am just going to go through with spending all these SPG points... So 5 nights at SR and 1 night at Conrad BOB.

Held PPT-LAX in Y for 40k AA X2 on TN

Going with 2 small kids staying at the banyan tree for 3 nights should I consider switching one night to a large resort with pools water slides etc? If so which one is worth trying for one night? (Banayan tree seems to only have one pool and not too exciting for kids, so made me think...) thank you

whats the deal with Zika in the Maldives? according to CDC there is zika but ive been told its not so true. does anyone know what the real situation is? TIA
Doubt anyone will know the ďreal situationĒ but each hotel is its own island and some hotels put out mosquito repellant every morning/night. Whilst I was there I didnít see one mosquito but you could also bring repellant bands and deet hope for the best.

Does Hyatt Ziva do anything for Kosher directly?

Not directly. They can order you food, at your expense, from Red Heifer and thatís about it.

Any recent experiences regarding bringing your own food at the St Regis?
Are they accommodating regarding warming up food?

Any other tips or nuggets?

They were very accommodating when I was there in late December and canít imagine them suddenly stopping servicing our ďdietary restrictionsĒ. Ask for Nasyb as your butler
