Yes. But very long layover at TLV (21h+) so I'll short check.

So I'm still not sure what your problem is. Assuming short checking works, just don't fly to Japan.

Of course! I just feel bad that I could have flown to Japan in J for free  :)

I hear ya, but if you can't leave TLV then you just have to be happy you saved 5k.

EWR-FRA-TLV-IST-NRT in LH J & TK J
75K UA miles + $44

Not sure what to do with last 2 legs though...  ;)

Simple, you call UA and have them change it to a few weeks later :)

And... wouldn't that trigger higher miles?

CLE-ORD-SFO for a quick trip with Rafi in the UD of a 747 before UA retires them.
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.

No F space for any dates that work and not worth doing that in J over 747 UD J.
