Pardon my ignorance, but what is the WATT script, and where can I download?

thx

Doesn't this work only if it's a route that ANA flies? I'm looking for US-Europe flights, so that doesn't seem to be an option.

thx
Once you search for an ANA route, the option to add *A partners becomes available. Once it does, you modify the search to whatever you are looking for.

Wow . That looks above my pay grade . Is it difficult to install and where do you install it. Anyone feeling altruistic  can PM me
Thanks

May I ask a question?

in ANA website, if I could not find an award roundtrip ticket BOSTON-SHANGHAI. But instead, I can find an award ticket BOS-EWR and an award ticekt EWR-shanghai using 7 day availability option.
Can I call ANA and tell them the flight numbers. Let ANA book the roundtrip ticket for me ?

Thanks

Airline websites don't always piece together all itinerary options available, so I believe by calling them you'll be able to get the flights you want.

Can someone enlighten me on ANA's cancellation policy. If I cancel my trip is it possible to get the miles refunded and surcharge? How much will it cost me to do that?

IIRC there is a penalty of 3000 miles.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

And IIRC, that only applies before trip starts.

Works by me. Never had any points there. Try different dates, different routes. (not NYC -TLV)  ;)

Also back then ANA's *A search was far more powerful than it is today.
