I currently have Option 2 booked, but I'm thinking about switching to this.



MEL-DXB = QF F a380
1:25 connection
DXB-JFK = EK F a380

Departs MEL Wednesday 10:55pm -  arrive ORD Thursday night.

Thoughts?
I personally like this one better, but who cares? Either way your gonna switch it another 3 times and all these current options are irrelevant

Probably worth a DDMS feature  :)

I'd be honored! Pretty please!  :)

UPDATED:

I've posted some of this over the past month but finally just finished the last flight so figured I'd post it all in one shot (and because I'm kinda proud of myself ;)). I separated the trips by the month that they're taking place in.

January
PHL-MIA AA Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 15,000 Avios
2 Nights in Miami.
MIA-GCM AA Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 9,450 Avios
2 Nights in Westin Grand Cayman: 32,000 SPG
GCM-MIA AA Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 9,450 Avios
4 Nights in Miami.
MIA-PHL AA Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 15,000 Avios

February
PHL-SLC AA Y (1 Adult): 10,000 Avios
1 Night in Hyatt Place SLC Airport: 5,000 Hyatt Points
1 Night in Hyatt Centric Park City: 15,000 Hyatt Points (wasn't available for both nights, but still working on the manager to open space :))
SLC-PHL AA Y (1 Adult): 10,000 Avios


March
PHL-DOH-MLE QR J (2 Adults): 135,000 AA
6 Nights in PH MLE: 150,000 Hyatt Points
MLE-DOH-PHL QR J (2 Adults): 135,000 AA

May
EWR-HNL UA F (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 60,000 SQ
6 Nights in GHK: 4 Sign Up Nights + 50,000 Hyatt Points (May switch to Maui. Not sure.)
HNL-EWR UA Plan B (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 80,000 UA

(Going to book inter-Hawaii flights later on once I finalize which island I'll be going to.)

August
JFK-ICN KE F (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 199,500 KE
1 Night in Grand Hyatt Seoul: Anniversary Night
ICN-CNX KE J (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): Free Stopover
6 Nights in LM Chiang Mhai: 22,000 SPG
CNX-USM PG Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): 20,000 JAL
5 Nights in Sheraton Samui: 28,000 SPG Points (Hope to change to CKS if there is still availability when I have enough points.)
USM-HKG PG Y (2 Adults + 1 Lap Infant): Free JAL Stopover
2 Nights in Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui: 1 Anniversary Night + 15,000 Hyatt Points
HKG-JFK CX J (2 Adults + 1 Infant in seat): 165,000 AA

And to think that it was just three years ago that I was proud of getting one free flight to Miami because I had accumulated enough cashback credit on my Amex Blue Cash...

Consider choosing rectangular projection for the map instead of polar. Gives it a much better sense of place IMO.

1:25 may be tight, no? But QF F > KE F IMO.

But is QF F + EK F > SQ R + KE F?

But is QF F + EK F > SQ R + KE F?

So I can fix the connection problem, exchange KE F for EK F with the following itin.



SYD-SIN = SQ R
4:05 connection
SIN-DXB = EK F
3:40 connection
DXB-JFK = EK F

Departs SYD Weds. 3pm - Arrives ORD Thurs. night

I'm just waiting for when you decide that down under isn't right for now and you will pick somewhere else instead and start all this over

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
