The thought of only two nights in MLE makes me want to cry.

Was just able to find MLE-AUH-JFK for Thursday night.

Now will be able to be there for 4 nights 5 days without being there for Shabbos.

Will either do SIN or BKK for the Shabbos before, as they both have direct flights to MLE Sunday morning.

I am leaning towards the PH as I am Diamond already and will sign up for the 2 free nights. Definitely beats MS 40k on the Reserve Card.

Who cares about direct? Either there are flights that work or not.

There's so much traveling to get to MLE to begin with that I think it's very understandable to not want to add another stop.

And once you're traveling that far a half hour flight from CNX won't be a big deal IMHO.

I don't have a problem with the flight itself, (especially a 30 min. one). It's more the hassle of it. Security, customs, luggage etc.

You realize that CNX-BKK is a domestic flight with interline options, yes?

Better idea to just do Conrad for 5 days with Diamond, or PH? Leaning towards Conrad as i really like the Conrad's and the 5th night free option.

Was going to say that. I planned out for a Sunday morning a while back CNX-BKK-MLE on PG. 30k EY miles in J.

Why go to CNX and have an extra stop. I would much rather do HKG for Shabbos and skip a stop on the outbound.

Do free nights work together with the 5th night free offer, or it needs to be all points, cash etc?

Seems like i will have some work to do. Can imagine trying to get 5th night free with free nights for two accounts will be even harder.
