Whenever there is Superior room available for sale, you can get it with a cert.
It's that the only room that goes for 80k ?

There is no such thing as award availability. Whenever there is a standard room for sale you can book it with points.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

That's what we are referring to, availability for the room that costs 80k.

Trying to evaluate risk, so to say, of applying for citi card now to use certs in August... any idea how likely it is that there will be no availability left by the time I get those, assuming I meet spending fairly quickly?

i just booked a room in aug to hold it and applied last night for the citi card. hoping it all works out. (more hoping I actually get to go to israel)

They post pretty quickly.
Try to get your card overnighted and move your closing date up.
You could have the certs within 2 weeks or less.
