Thanks.
What about if I booked before 21 days and want to change now? Do I have to pay the late fee?
If you booked more than 24 hours ago, I think you need to pay a large 'change fee', but no late fee.

I see availability for 90k economy, (non stop NYC - TLV) any possibility this will still go down, or it just keeps on going up?

Does it ever happen that it goes down?

FYI the flight I was looking for has now 5 Saver awards available!
But I booked with AA already.

booked LH-J with United and F opens up can I "upgrade" (without cost, Just points) and how do I do that?
And can only 1 way of the itinerary be upgraded?

Booked on United, 1st leg is with TAP (Portgual) second leg is with United all on 1 ticket. Does the luggage transfer, or do I have to collect it?

Should transfer but ask at the airport.

2 awards unless you find one of those 30+ hour itineraries.
