Why when I check at ba.com they show availability on QF F SYD-MEL-LAX, and when I called AA the agent said she doesn't see anything? she also claims that QF flights are bookable on aa.com...!?

I see it on QF, but the agent from AA said she doesn't see anything!

Have you tried calling AA Australia? Seems that they can often see seats on partner airlines that AA America says are not there.  OTOH QF F seats are notorious for appearing as phantom availability on AA.com, especially recently, where there was a ticketing issue, even with tickets that AA agents could see.

After 4 hours on hold/phone and 6 HUCA I finally got United to book me on a flight Wednesday to TLV after my flight got cancelled from here in the midwest to Newark.

Booked with Singapore Airline miles. Any chance to get Singapore to book me on a Lufthansa flight without charging me taxes? This is what the 2nd to last United rep was trying to convince me.

 Was trying to get on a Lufthansa flight to skip flying to NY altogether.

Your original flight was EWR-TLV booked via SQ on UA? You called UA to protect on different flight, are you protected yet or not?
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Is this all happening this weekend?
When is this?

In a couple of weeks.

Another Photo DO?

Yup :D

Come on! With a scenery like this and those 3 involved its too obvious..
Maybe, but I'm sure there are mountains that are closer (at least for 2/3 of them).

Not many places have jaw-dropping scenery + northern lights.

Nice! Send regards to Molde. Had a good time when I was there.

What brought you there, the Atlantic Ocean Road?

Elaboration may not come till 2017, though. Although when it comes, elaborate it will be.

They put me on Wednesdays flight finally. I can't even tell you how many reps told me I needed to call Singapore. And some tried to confirm me on Lufthansa but after 45 talking to Lufthansa came back to tell me they couldn't convert the award ticket to a revenue seat.

Nice! Looks like a great itinerary. Chances you'll make tons of changes before you fly?
Chances that I'll make changes on the first 5 flights are nil. I'd change the last 2 flights if a better option opens up from MEL-CNS, like the non-stop one for example.

Not sure yet, but possibly SYD-AUH-AMM-JED on EY a380 F and RJ J on an AA award and JED-FRA-JFK on LH F or a combination of LH F and SQ R on an SQ award.

X2 = for two people?
Yes, except for when I'm talking about the products, in which case x2 means two flights. For example we'll be flying QR domestic F on two separate flights.

Why the extra AUH-AMM-JED legs and not just AUH-JED on EY 77w?

Specifically have an interest in JED? Our just want to cross airports off your list?
