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.

my own experience & FT disagree with that. Perhaps long sell.

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

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.

Wouldn't that be 130K then?

So you'd find the availability on AP? Then ask whose ever *A miles you have to long sell and book?

Probably also available with US.

US reps won't give you those at all. Just got off the phone on the 3rd try.

135K vs. 120K with UA, not a big deal for a shot at an A380 suite.
you mean business obviously. Still you're referring to US - Australia routings. the Australia - Europe / Tel Aviv have a much larger gap between UA-US and AC...

That's because 9/10 US reps have never heard of a long sell.

Yup, you quoted before my delete ;)

Yes, search on AC for the long sell availability.

AC shows 4+ available but SQ doesn't even have medium availability (let alone saver)

Date        Carrier    Flight  From  Depart    To    Arrive    A/C  St  Availability
----------- ---------  ------  ----  --------  ----  --------  ---  --  ------------
19 Oct 2012 SQ         67      BCN   18:15     SIN   13:20 +1  77W  0   FS+  CS+

Still think you can get it via a long sell?

AC is showing tons of availability some of which SQ doesn't even have at saver.

IMO, youre wasting your time.
