Was never a ticketing issue, guess I just got 2 bad reps who refused to look for OZ.
I'd have tried harder if you had let it stay a DD exclusive :P

Meh.
Even if posted here I'd assume you'd want it to stay undercover so that it could have a chance of lasting longer.
Don't normally assume people want more exposure for their finds unless they say so.  I didn't see a PM/email from you ;)

'Sall good.  Hopefully UA.com picks it up tonight and I'll run with that angle.

Just search for JFK-NRT and then you can modify the search to search all Star Alliance routes.

This is one of those things that's going to go away by tomorrow (mayyybe a bit longer) no matter if one person books or a hundred. It's only a matter of time until OZ's booking system is back in sync.

Next time I'll shoot you an email/PM, no doubt, I just hope it doesn't go unanswered like the other 67 :P

If I see it pop up on UA.com, I'll let you know, but I'd think by the time that it's back on UA, it may be fixed :(

Or use the WATT script.

Can someone please check  august 10 jfk-icn (1 pm) august 11 (8 pm) icn-hkt all on oz
It's available. Should I switch? Get in night before ( 1am) and cut out two flights plus try anther product. It's gonna be $150 change fee? No matter what I'm changing?
If I don't change o/d it should be $75/pax, correct?

Should be $75 change fee per pax.

What is your current routing, and what is your proposed routing?

Is the ICN-HKT leg during the day?

Looks like it's gone anyways (unless it's just not showing on ua.com now)
Current YYZ-MUC-FRA-BKK-HKT
Proposed-YYZ-JFK-ICN-HKT (allows me to drop off kids in JFK, and possibly move yyz-jfk to before the weekend)

Relative question-Leave JFK at 1 PM arrive ICN at 4 PM leave ICN at 8 PM and arrive at 1 AM in HKT

I'd probably switch. You get TG F Spa on the way back and get to experience three top notch F products, when you might not get the chance otherwise.
