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

$875/night is a great find?
Why not just go to BOB?

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

EDIT: You're right. Not for OWB.

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?

I'm using Air France to check for availability and don't see any for May-Sept.

I know DL also partners with Air Tahiti Nui -- do you know the best way to search them?

It's possible you're right and I'm doing something wrong, but I just rechecked LAX-PPT in J on AF for May, June, July, and August.

This is what I get:

GMTA -- after I couldn't find anything on AF website, I used EF to confirm: no availability in J.

Maybe Dan can prove me wrong.

I think LIH and OGG would be a great option

Aha, I found 2 seats PPT-LAX in J on TN.

Too bad there isn't any availability LAX-PPT :)

No OWB there :( but always a backup option...

The TN flight LAX-PPT actually originates in CDG and TN7 CDG-LAX-PPT has better availability.

So if youre up for a trip to Paris, 2 seats are available on May 13,14,15

Even if we were up for a trip to CDG (so out of the wayyy), I just checked EF, and did not see any availability for those days...

Though since last week, I saw a couple more options for PPT-LAX, but not options for LAX-PPT.

Still zero J availability on AF thru June.
