Yeah, SQ has basically said flat out they'd be bringing it to you... that'd be retaaaaahded. Literally the most unattainable award in this game, AFAIK.

I'd imagine he's booked for MEL/SYD?
You know way too much about me ;)

Well, it seems we may move our trip to Europe 2 days earlier in order to get the SQ a380, and in so doing miss a friend's wedding here. Worth it? :-)

As long as we were going to AMS early, I threw in 3 days in Paris. We are also thinking about doing ZRH or FCO
I will transfer in the UR when I am ready to book. until then, UA allows me to hold the ticket becase I have insufficient miles in my account. 

Here's what we have on hold:


Mon., Aug. 6, 2012 | New York, NY (JFK) to Paris, France (CDG)
Depart: 8:35 p.m. Mon., Aug. 6, 2012 New York, NY (JFK)
Arrive: 10:45 a.m. +1 Day Tue., Aug. 7, 2012 Frankfurt, Germany (FRA)
Flight Time: 8 hr 10 mn
Flight: SQ25 Airbus A380-800
Fare Class: Business (I)
 
Connect time in Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) is 1 hr 20 mn.
Depart: 12:05 p.m. Tue., Aug. 7, 2012 Frankfurt, Germany (FRA)
Arrive:1:15 p.m. Tue., Aug. 7, 2012 Paris, France (CDG)
Flight Time: 1 hr 10 mn
Flight: LH1034
Aircraft: Airbus A319
Fare Class: Business (I)


Fri., Aug. 10, 2012 | Paris, France (CDG) to Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)
Depart: 8:50 a.m. Fri., Aug. 10, 2012 Paris, France (CDG)
Arrive: 10:20 a.m. Fri., Aug. 10, 2012 Munich, Germany (MUC)
Flight: LH2227
Operated by Lufthansa Cityline.
Aircraft: E95
Fare Class: Economy (X)
 
Change Planes. Connect time in Munich, Germany (MUC) is 50 mn.
Depart: 11:10 a.m. Fri., Aug. 10, 2012 Munich, Germany (MUC)
Arrive: 12:45 p.m. Fri., Aug. 10, 2012 Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)
Flight: LH2304
Operated by Augsburg Airways (Lufthansa Regional).
Aircraft: E95
Fare Class: Economy (X)
 
Wed., Aug. 15, 2012 | Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS) to New York/Newark, NJ (EWR - Liberty)
Depart:9:15 a.m. Wed., Aug. 15, 2012 Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)
Arrive: 11:45 a.m.  Wed., Aug. 15, 2012 New York/Newark, NJ (EWR - Liberty)
Travel Time: 7 hr 30 mn
Flight: UA71 Aircraft: Boeing 757-200
Fare Class: United Economy (X)

TOTAL COST: 80K (UA) + $125 p/p
I'm not too crazy about spending nearly 5 hours in economy on regional jets just to get from Paris to Amsterdam. I will likely look for a better routing Being that this is *A, there is no non-stop to AMS from CDG.

I suspect we will be able to tolerate Y on the way home. At least it's a day-time flight.

Is it 80,000 because you have two stops?
