Hey! Does anyone know if I could switch names(not just secondary guests) on a reservation at the WA is it better to do it through Hilton or the hotel? Would the hotel give the guest a hard time?

looking for MLE to JFK in early Sep.  My backup plan is MLE-DOH-JFK on AA but first leg is Y QR and second is J on AA metal and costs 172K each one way. I would prefer all J.  any suggestions?  I have AMEX/AS/AA/BA/DL and limited UA (200K) and need 2 return tickets from MLE-JFK. (I have tried MLE-DOH-VIE-LHR-JFK the cost is about the same).  I could spend $70 for PCR and stop over in DOH for a couple of days if that helps.

Fine. I'll post later today BH

Very accommodating with kosher. They are storing my polar bag in their freezer and the butler bring the bag when I need.
They still provide kosher wine as a welcome amenity for Diamond. I brought my own pan and at breakfast they make omelettes in front of me. They are also happy to take out new pans / plates anytime.
