Stupid UA computer decided to eat 90K pp instead of 70K for JFK-ICN-PVG in OZ F/OZ J.
Unbelievable. ICN and PVG are both in North Asia you idiots.
If you think that is bad, join me working with US Airways...

Stupidity beyond belief, for the good and the bad...

At least US can override the computer.
I have to wait for the MPSC to fight with it during business hours all for a trip that I'm probably not going to take.
Thanks AJK :D

Why not get it ticketed before OZ wakes up?

Cuz I don't plan on ticketing it, unless something hits me really hard over night.

Congrats.

What'd they charge you for your routing?

Surprisingly the correct amount, 140k. Last time was cheaper, but apparently Australia has recently separated from Asia ;)

Well worth it though...

Well done. I thought you may have trouble with the Australia routing.

There's always trouble but never had a problem in the end getting it ticketed.

Hope to be able to do a couple more such trips before this last good *A disappears.

Question is now where to stop in Asia for a few days?

My wife and I are planning a trip to venice and then israel for may to celebrate our 10th anniversary. I have 300k SPG points, 80k AA miles and 30k Skymiles. What would be the most economical way to get from JFK->VCE->TLV and then back to JFK from TLV? Which airline should I transfer my SPG points to - if possible I'd like to fly first or business class as well. I'm thinking of somehow utilizing them in combo with the American Airlines points but I'm a REAL novice at this. Any help is much appreciated
