I know I might be nuts but this what I decided and booked. LGA-ORD-HKG-BKK CX J (hoping F opens) BKK-USM-BKK (local carrier) BKK-NRT (looking for TG F need help) NRT-LAX SQ R LAX-JFK (hoping  for AA 321 F/J). I want to thank my fellow DDF family for your TRs which have been the primary source of motivation for this especially the Master of this thread and many others Mr. and Mrs. AJK.

Not the best choice of thread (probably should be here), but anyway :)

This is your trip (potentially):



--After all the back and forth with MLE, you're doing an itin that's 21,000 mi? more than 3,000 miles longer than MLE? I sure hope you're not taking the infant... and if not, why not MLE? I'd say it's better than USM.
--BKK-NRT in TG F tends to open close-in pretty reliably. Also, if you can stomach it, I'd fly into NRT (LGA-ORD-HKG-NRT), so you can get NRT-BKK-NRT for 50K in TG F A380 (which is cheaper than UA's one-way price of 60K!)

P.S. Glad I was able to motivate you to do an awesome trip like this! ;)

Not the best choice of thread (probably should be here), but anyway :) Was planning on posting in a more appropriate thread t'was done by mistake :(



--After all the back and forth with MLE, you're doing an itin that's 21,000 mi? more than 3,000 miles longer than MLE? I sure hope you're not taking the infant... and if not, why not MLE? I'd say it's better than USM. Infant not coming, Wanted to cover multiple countries at once, MLE is high on the list and I'll get to it iy"h.
--BKK-NRT in TG F tends to open close-in pretty reliably. Also, if you can stomach it, I'd fly into NRT (LGA-ORD-HKG-NRT), so you can get NRT-BKK-NRT for 50K in TG F A380 (which is cheaper than UA's one-way price of 60K!) Using what miles?

P.S. Glad I was able to motivate you to do an awesome trip like this! ;)

Is TG only bookable using AC by phone? because I don't see anything on their website.

Can be booked online AFAIK. Check 10/27 for example.

ETA:


Yes, I've booked it online.

YQ is a little high, but makes a great value when adding BKK-CNX-BKK and adding an infant for only $125.
