Actually, just got a better idea, which was the whole point of this thread: maximizing value.

Option 3) If I book it from another US city, I can use the NYC leg as a stopover which means I CAN change from among the NYC airports.

Such that I can have the following:

MIA-EWR(stop)//JFK-ORD-NRT.

And then if JFK-NRT opens, I can switch for free!

And I get half a trip to MIA for free :)

ETA: Am I missing anything?

Or even better than MIA, perhaps LAX... something like this?

Looks like a MPM+25% violation.
[KVS Availability Tool 7.1.9 - Reference: Maximum Permitted Mileage [MPM]: LAX-HKG/AA]
Code: [Select]
                                                               
         GI       M      5M     10M     15M     20M     25M     
MPM      PA    8698    9132    9567   10002   10437   10872     
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Nope, I checked it.

Check LAX-HKT.

MPM+25% = 12998
Actual mileage = 12755

OK, so far have:

NYC-ORD-NRT(in JL SkySuite)//HND-HKG(CX F).

Question now becomes:

Where do I go?

I'm coming back from DPS, but where should I start the trip?

Looks like it's rainy season in HKT (though doesn't have to be in Thailand)....

Anyone know anything about Boracay?

Well, it seems it won't happen this time 'round.

Looks like for June/July, the only destinations I should be considering, given the climate, are Indonesia and Malaysia, so I believe we'll pick from those two.
