Oh, I'm using a smartphone and the only thing highlighted was skyteam.thanks

Yeah, highlighted means it's a link ;)

As noted above, it's MU F (China Eastern).

Sadly, with "only" two weeks, I just don't see a way to incorporate two destinations as far flung as MLE and AKL. Not without basically eating up like 4 or 5 days or travel time. Especially if I'd feel :obligated: to fly EY again from MLE-AUH-SYD (the stop in AUH being very inconvenient schedule-wise).

Alas, if I'm compelled to pick, it seems the better money is on AKL.

The Conrad MLE will have to wait, it seems.

Confession:

Award searching/trip planning for me is like a crawling down a black rabbit hole.

I start, get engrossed, look up after what I think is a half hour, and find out several hours have gone by...  :o

Am I alone?

Wow, now that I look at it, I think I'd have to be an idiot to pick red.

Ha, though now that I think about it, I'm not sure I would have redeemed for J anyway.

Wow, am I really looking forward to redeeming for First on a SkyTeam carrier?

(No, I've never been particularly excited about KE...)

Suite with doors + double bed + pretty good availability? Yes, please.

Any way to book a one-way?
Tried to play around on their website, but my goodness it makes El Al's look state of the art.
