Why the extra AUH-AMM-JED legs and not just AUH-JED on EY 77w?
I'm not interested in waiting around in JED longer than I have to. Since I'd have time to kill anyway before my flights from JED and FRA, I might as well accompany my friend all the way back to AMM (he's returning to Israel for Pesach).
Specifically have an interest in JED? Our just want to cross airports off your list?
Neither, especially since I don't have a visa so it's irrelevant.

I heard it's hard. One day :)
ETA. Even if I got one, I don't know of anyone that would go with me. Are you down? ;) :P

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.
Good to hear your not fully #TeamD93

After being on the phone for 50 minutes with AA AUS I was able to put on hold the following: CX F HKG-JFK (in November), now I would like to add a leg from SYD to HKG, but there's no reasonable flight available, will I be able to add it after the devaluation? or if I add one in Y will I be able to change it after the devaluation to J when it opens up?

With AS you can book SYD-HKG-JFK as one award for 80k in F (SYD-HKG would be in J.

1)If you meant the free stopover on a OW award, I donít really have enough time anyway.
2)I donít have AS miles now; contrary I do have a bit of AA miles.
3)AA before devaluation will be 72,500 for SYD-HKG-JFK

it would be 2 awards on AA 72.5k + 35k.

You can't route through Asia.

The truth is I'm still debating, should I do AUS at all at this time? since I'm limited with time HKG could be a nice trip on its own?! what do you guys think? I basically want to take 'AAdvantage' of the miles before the devaluation.

Booked. TLV-AMM-BAH-DOH-DXB-MEL-SYD-CNS x2
In RJ J,
GF J,
QR (domestic) F x2,
QF A380 F,
QF J x2

Total cost 60k AA and $35.40 x2

You can book all that for just one AA award? isn't that too many stops and/or exceeding MPM?
