Even TK from the US ain't terrible. You have a bed to sleep in, booze to drink, and movies to watch. Why is that so bad?
If you fly QR, EK or EY with 1 stover I don't see why it's a pia especially if you're flying first.
its all fine and dandy when i find availability... with united on tk but i cant find any

and i cant find anything on ba that has more than one seat :(

i dont know how itll play out but i have to see if my dates can be flexible (now that i have only one more month to book)
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

When you going?
July.
I know it's the rainy season, but it's the only time I can get babysitting, and it allows me to get out of the Conrad.

What's the hard product like on CAI-JFK?
No interest in stopping in Israel to visit us?
Did you add on a 'free' OW at the end?

How's the hard product on the Cairo to NYC flight? Lie flat? Good reviews?
It's a shame to schlepp in from the US to MLE when you're much closer during the rest of the year when you're based in Israel.

And yes, add on a free OW to somewhere.
HNL, LAX, Carribean, etc.

so here is the idea...

Keep the deaprting part of my trip as is...

and maybe take a paid flight back.... why?

I just found on cathay BIZ $1150 one way from MLE>NYC with a stop in HKG. I think this is an amazing price (being that its 5k for the opp direction) obviously ill sell my points if need be.

ideas?

Do it.
You'll also accrue extra miles depending on the booking class.
