Nope.
Plan B or standard award.
Or GS 😛. I just started rereading your TR and I think I have to do this. (Now how to convince a friend to join me 🤔)

Was trying to figure out what you will do about that. I think you may be stuck blowing some of your own for him. (or keep him in Y straight through)

The points aren't the problem, it's convincing someone to go on a half brain trip halfway across the world for no reason other than to just take the trip.

The whole "being under the weather" thing is the reason I'll probably have a Hopper Redux, but this time I'll probably stop over for some great diving in Micronesia.

Are you available in mid August by any chance?

I just remembered that my grandparents lived in Kwajalein when my grandfather worked for the military, I think my aunt may have even been born there. Definitely would be cool to see it even if you can't get off the plane.

I have no idea how I would do that but that would be really cool, I'll look into it.

Only worth it if you fly NRT-MNL-ROR-GUM-TKK-PNI-KSA-KWA-MAJ-HNL
I've been playing around with things tonight, I really don't see any way to work out a stop in ROR and still do the Island hopper, it would have to be one or the other. A shame really, I just read your TR on ROR.....it just seems so amazing.

Wouldn't help me anyways, I'd be leaving TLV on Sunday and taking the island hopper from GUM on Wed morning. I don't see any way of getting to ROR with enough time to get back to GUM and still have time on ROR.

I still don't think that'll help, the earliest I can see getting into ROR is Monday night and I'd have to leave on the 2 AM flight to GUM on Wed to catch the 8:30 AM departure. It's a ridiculous amount of traveling for what comes down to one day in ROR.
