More driver, less tour guide, but he was somewhat informative.

Recommended.

+1 I felt that he gave the right amount of info without being annoying and in your face the whole time. On one drive he had another driver who was definitely more of the tour guide type.

AJK I didn't realize you ended up using him how did it work out?

Worked out wonderfully. I believe he charged us $50 total for the whole day!

is it odd that the place you link to has the same exact pictures as a different property?

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/213423
Only thing I can think is that it's a different villa. It's a group of several villas so it would make sense. It's a bit out of Ubud but it's a really nice place and so peaceful. Most of what we wanted to see in Ubud was a 5 minute drive or so. We were there for Shabbos.

Sorry I didn't clarify, but was looking for miles redemptions only.

Thanks. So you mean that KE ICN-DPS is not real F? How so? Is it not lie-flat?

It's odd. Looking at seatguru now, it looks like they do have flights. I'll call up and find out.

Yeah let me know.

Ideally, I'd like to burn MR. Looks NH can book JFK-NRT-DPS in F (so only 1 stop, and the second leg is on Garuda which seems to have real F acc to seat guru) for 120K. Doesn't seem like a bad option. Of course SQ is an option but it will be 2 stops JFK-FRA-SIN-DPS and availability is tough to come by. How's NH availability normally?

Could be the flights on the day i need don't have F and the J was full as well. It is an old F product and not near as nice or comfortable as the 777 product i will take to SIN.

I can assure you that NH isn't booking you in GA F.

Theoretically, sure.

But not on your routing.

So, are their any options to use MR and only have 1 stop? Can KLM book KE J/F?

Can anyone advise why the Conrad Bali paid rates are so cheap (sub $200). Is that normal for the area?
