Great find. Interesting it's not appearing on AA.

I believe it to be a point-of-sale issue, as AA Australia agents could see it, but AA US agents could not

FYI, ExpertFlyer is showing 2 Business Class seats on quite a number of days in August

For LAX to PPT - TN 7 : August 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 30
For PPT to LAX - TN 8 : August 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 29, 30

I haven't checked beyond that, but given how rare it is to find awards on those flights, figured people might want to grab it

everytime I try to find dates, e.g. Apr1 from MIA to NYC, all I get are sAAver with connections, nothing ever on the myriad non-stops. Guess y'all just have better luck than I lol

Nothing earth shattering...

JFK-MIA AA J 757 15k BA + $5.60 x3
MIA-JFK AA Y 757 7.5k BA + $5.60 x3

Honestly the mere fact that you were able to find NY<>FL with sAAver-level awards I think is pretty earth-shattering!

apologies if this is not the correct place, but as I have had all the variants of the Amex Plat I was wondering if anyone that got the email offer to refer two friends to an Amex plat with no lifetime language last month has any spare invites left? If so, please could you PM me? Ta!

Selling three (3) $99 plus tax codes for $40 each, or $100 for all three. two have exp December 2018, the third exp May 2019

Given that it seems that we can book into the OWV at current (expensive) rates and get them re-priced post-August to the lower rates, how do people feel now? More specifically, re: French Polynesia? Conrad BB vs SR B vs Hilton Moorea (I would add IC Thalasso but I can never find rooms on points)?

magnifique, and yasher koach!

works with Lyft and too

That sounds amazing, might be worth doing even if I couldn't eat the fish. I assume they just grilled it open over a regular grill?

from what I recall, yes, though I was too engrossed watching the hermit crabs on the sand fight each other lol

Do you remember what company you used for the airplane tour and how much it cost?

SmileAir i think it was. For the door-off option you sit up front in the second-pilot chair .  Edit: just looked at my transactions for last year, and I see it was SmileAir and I paid $194 (includes door-off option)

I saw that and it looks really cool although I'm not sure how that would work with kosher.

Good point. I guess even if the fish is kosher the grill etc... will not be? I guess you could always take something double-wrapped to heat up? Fwiw, the grilling part is actually small part of the day. after the drive to the dock and a trip out to the reef you spend a good time snorkeling, followed by another boat ride and then maybe thirty mins fishing. They then go to an island off of kayangel where they prep the food whilst you walk around the deserted beaches, take photos etc... Then they go to kayangel main island and you get to meet locals etc... before returning

I thoroughly recommend the Impac tour to Kayangel - it's a full-day drive/boat/snorkel/fish/grill-the-catch tour. That, and the airplane tour with door-off option. I also did the Relaxed kayak tour with fishnfins (owned by an Israeli, fwiw) which was arduous but a lot of fun
