Just got off the phone with them. She was willing to book me a rt from CDG to MLE on Etihad with one stop in AUH (for 2 hrs and 20 min).
I'm talking about from ORD/JFK.

Also not true AFAIK. She couldn't find availability JFK-CDG direct, so she was willing to do JFK-LHR-CDG-AUH-MLE for 45k.

Again, I'm talking about the direct JFK/ORD-AUH-MLE flights.

JFK-LHR-CDG-AUH-MLE and then 2 more flights and a boat transfer...sounds more like a nightmare.

My bad it just went active. OWB=$875/nt

Thanks. Great find. Will have to research a bit more.

JFK-LHR-CDG-AUH-MLE and then 2 more flights and a boat transfer...sounds more like a nightmare.

What two more?

I mentioned I was looking from CDG to her so not sure if she wouldv'e done direct to AUH if not. Could be.
JFK-LHR-CDG-AUH-MLE and then 2 more flights and a boat transfer...sounds more like a nightmare.
If you make two trips out of it and leave from CDG for 60k rt in Business...doesn't sound too bad.

I'm seeing $495/night in April/May... I guess those are not for OWB?

EDIT: You're right. Not for OWB.

Ya my bad $655 for OWB for April and May.
Click the dates you want and you will have the option to chose the OWB after.

When trying to UG to a OWB at the Hyatt MLE, how would you suggest I do it?

1. Apply the free suite nights via the RSVP line, and then contact the Hyatt GM to confirm an UG, or
2. Contact the Hyatt GM initially to book the RSVP.

Other suggestions are surely welcome.

Well, it seems, at least according to one, that if you are a Diamond the two free nights in a suite are in OWB?!

My goodness.

Have been checking LAX-PPT for awards in J and I don't see any for months.

I knew it was hard, but this hard?
