UA is *net blocking SQ right now.
Which means that the flights in Aeroplan are accurate or they won't book?

Should work with AC.
If not push for a long sell (with any *A miles)

The phantom stuff can be booked via long sell (was also bookable on UA mobile before they put up *net blocking)...not all that phantom

Wow. I was kind of regretting not booking a flight to australia on the A380'able route.

You're saying that if I go through AP/AC, I can still book?  :o

I don't have miles in my AC account, but the F flights are readily available there.
Probably also available with US or even UA long sell as well.

Will UA long sell if they're *net blocking?

Aeroplan charges a lot for Autralia bookings.

185K vs 160K -- that's the price I pay for procrastinating.


Should I book as far out as possible to maximize A380 chances?

Anyone know cancellation fees for AP?

135K vs. 120K with UA, not a big deal for a shot at an A380 suite.

How are you getting those numbers?

I see here that US-SYD/MEL is 185K in F:

And, on a 3 cabin plane, I see it being 160K UA here:

If you get an agent to put in the long sell, sure.
The challenge will be finding an agent that even knows how to long sell and then actually agree to do it.  But it should work just find with any *A miles.
