I stand corrected.
Last time I was not able to add it and when I called them I was told that it was
discontinued but I was able to add it successfully now.
Either a case of HUCA or you're mixing up EWR-LAX/SFO with JFK-LAX/SFO.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

JFK-LAX,

It seems that when they cut EWR some agents though it to mean JFK as well.

If anyone is heading out from NYC to LAX for sukkos, united is operating the brand new 787-9 on one of their monday flights out of EWR to LAX.

Another coast to coast option on the 787-9 will be EWR to SFO on october 20, the monday after sukkos. No mileage availability though.

Are the seats in J any better/bigger then on the P.S. ?
Is it worth giving up on the smaller quieter cabin ? (not to mention the schlep to EWR instead of JFK)

The J seats on the 787 are supposedly very good, though its more for the experience if you wanted to try this aircraft, this will be the longest domestic run.

Been trying to find 2 award seats LAX-NYC for this coming Sunday. Can't find a single seat available on any mileage program!

I know it's a busy weekend, but...

Anyone know if AA (Avios) tends to open up last minute?

Any other ideas?

TIA!

I thought it was only today that was the busiest day! ;)
I almost thought that everyone disappears, and never comes back... ::)

If you are willing to spend for domestic first class, US Airways has available sunday night. Connecting in RDU or CLT.

Good luck! If you're not picky about flying direct, UA has some LAX-EWR availability on Sunday with a stop in LAS.

Hope this is allowed in this thread:
Does LH M&M charge YQ on AC YYZ-LAX?
