That's really hard to say...it all depends what you're looking for.
While Kauai may be my favorite place on earth, I'm not always looking for that kind of vacation.  I am having KWS (Kauai withdrawal syndrome) though!

BTW, for those who just use the forum, here is part 2:

Im not having any luck getting CO to sell me a simple CLE-EWR-FRA-BKK-SYD-BKK-FRA-EWR-CLE itinerary.
Has anyone here actually gotten CO to book a ticket to Australia via Europle and Asia?
Just got CO to ticket MEL-BKK-FCO-EWR/JFK-FRA-BKK-MEL.

You need to get the right agent/supervisor. Most won't allow it

Ever get that routing to price out?  Or does it require getting an agent to manually price?

It will never price by itself, it has to be done manually.

One of the supervisors actually told me that they can get in trouble for manually pricing certain routings so many are reluctant to do it.

Methinks you got lucky!

Very hard to get them to manually price that!

Well this is bizarre.
The ticket was on hold until 11/03 yesterday, I called just to check the latest tax update, and now it says "Ticketed-Nov. 2, 2010"

How could it possibly ticket without me even giving a credit card? And future ticketing...that's a new one.

 :P

Here's the itin from yesterday and from today:

Well that didn't take long.
Haven't even taken off and BA192 DFW-LHR is canceled!
On hold now...
The 2nd of 3 bad luck to LHR flights.
