You have a GA ticketing office near you?
That whole process just sounds like a world of pain.

Doesn't it?

Looks like they have one in ORD and LAX, but not NYC:

Ha. Food could certainly mitigate it somewhat, but boy do I like being able to find, book, and issue $25,000 tickets in my PJs.

Meh. Any excuse to travel to LAX or ORD is good enough for me.  Even if it's to book more travel :D

I am what they call moderately questionable.

You are what they call certifiable.

If anyone wants to join me in JL F (historically hard to find space), SFO-HND is now wide open due equipment change.

Nah, I'm already in JL F. But for others, this is a great find, especially if you can pair it with a JFK-SFO A321T leg in F.

CX options from HND or NRT?

Working on JFK-LAX (on the A321)-Overnight-LAX-SFO(US Air)-SFO-HND(JAL F).

CX options would solely be to HKG from those airports.

I guess I could consider it IF they had BA F available the night before... which they don't.
