Welcome to DDF, but AA F is vastly inferior to UA F.

It ain't too bad, plus the a321's that they will be getting, will be much better than united.

I flew this about three months ago. It reclines nicely for a good rest, but does not go close to flat, for a real good sleep.

I just saw something on a blog which I never knew you can redeem SQ for domestic flights 25/40/60.

So to go JFK - LAX lie flat would be 40k, 20k each way. Also there is no close in fee.

Not a bad redemption for 20k AMEX.

Would probably be more worthwhile to book thru ba at 25k each way for business as 20k amex could get you that plus some extra many times a year

United PS JFK-LAX is not lie-flat in business.
Also how much does YQ add to that?

No YQ in US
Total was $3.20 in SQ money
United PS JFK-LAX is not lie-flat in business.
You cant Lie-flat from nyc-lax?

ETA: You could fly EWR - LAX lie-flat 20k OR JFk - LAX in F for 30k each way not bad.

This makes sense?

I don't follow that route too often, but the 3 class PS aircraft that I believe operates on that route is definitely not lie-flat in J.

If they're using sCO international 752s for that then its not PS.  PS on the sUA 752 has no economy minus seating and has business and first class, while the sCO 752 does have economy minus and only has business, not first.

The best bargain is using 50K US to fly in First on the sUA aircraft.

That's an sCO aircraft, so business will be lie-flat.  Most flights are sUA aircraft without lie-flat business.

US - Cant transfer from AMEX unless 84% haircut.
        No one way.

Yes, but SQ isn't an instant transfer and they have a limited award redemption list, etc.
Still it's worth bearing in mind, yes.

Very interesting - Some flights they could find and some not, even though on UA it was open(not elite or club holder).

I'd much rather a 2 cabin lie flat.  The 3 cabin PS isnt flat.
