@ Flying ace: I believe they will change (upgrade) for free, if I recall correctly.

OS biz is really bad...
Does anyone know for sure? I don't want to rebook if it won't work. For example, CO has coach availability, will I be put up to biz if there are empty seats or does it depend on award availability?

They do, but it's more than half the miles eg roundtrip NYC Tlv in business 135k miles OW 90k.

You can search Singapore thru frankfurt & you won't pay any fuel surcharges either

Looks like it might be over.  It's coming up as 3 different mileage levels.

per AP rep, if there's a business class award available later, you can call & upgrade to it for free. However this is only if its on the same exact flight -- I found a business class seat on the same day but different flight, & she wanted to charge $90 to UG it. Is this true or should I HUCA

I can take a coach seat on UA ZUR-EWR; CO TLV-EWR; or US TLV_PHL on Sunday 2/5. Anyone want to guess who is more likely to open business awards closer to the flight?

I'd bet on US, plus they have the nicest Business class
I'd stick with the UA to ZRH as that's less time in coach, if it comes to that.
I love stopovers in ZRH.

It's only the return TLV-NYC... I can get LX business out of TLV only until Zurich, with UA coach to EWR. Have to check if LX coach is available. Otherwise, CO and US have coach availability and business is not full, but no award seats now.

LX is harder for reps to book so make sure they don't lie about no seats.
I had a guy tell me their system was down, only for me to HUCA & get a tkt on LX
Also if your first leg is in Business you'll get business class luggage allowance all the way through, per this FT thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/air-canada-aeroplan/1228892-baggage-allowance-business-aeroplan-award-first-leg-economy.html

I am looking on ANA. No availability, but LX coach is available. So my choice is LX bus+coach with the chance of changing if it opens. Or the nonstops also in coach,with the chance of something opening. I am thinking that US to PHL is the less traveled route. Do they open up award seats later on?
