For the record I checked last week about the EWR-SEA-KOA-SEA-EWR flight that would theoretically work with a connection there and stopover back and there was not a single seat for saver awards through end of scheduling.

Seems to close the matter. No real deal here....Ironically no one has reported that they have actually used this deal and has a booked itinerary.

Mommy Points has, but it's from the West Coast.

Dan, what criteria would this have to meet in order to attain 'deal' status?

A flight from the midwest/east coast IMHO.

FYI

As per this post from FT- looks like someone had success from Florida as well. I would hold my horses before shunning this opportunity

"Yeah the taxes are what they said about yesterday but when I called today she said the back office had the reservation and they where checking about the routing which did not make sense to me since I only have 1 stop over in san diego going out. I am going from MCO to SAN with a 3 day stop over before going to HNL. Then coming back from HNL to SAN to MCO with just a connection. So that has me worried but from what was said 1 stop over is ok.

I think they would win a charge back at this point

I think I did ok having just booked a round trip  ticket to Anchorage next summer. Although I have not received the conf e-mail yet.

I found availability from PHL -> SEA -> ANC

The two PHL/SEA flights are in first.

There were some dates in which both segments had availability in First (A class)

I would highly recommend  that if you bought point you use them immediately and this is a pretty good value.
