UA 120k
I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

When? Been looking for 8/26 or 8/27 for weeks. No UA availability that makes sense.

8/21 gotta be back for rosh chodesh.
I hope they either open up a saver award for the direct flight (doubt it) or a shorter TK stopover flight.

Maybe Dan will be willing help me with that  ::)
Not really, but it's complicated...
But that was the easy part.

ETA. one seat opened up on TK the 1K desk was able to get all 3 seats!
new itinerary JFK-IST-TLV (A330 on both flights :-))
3 passengers in J
240k UA +$122 tax

One thing is a bit weird the tax stayed the same even though it should be $84 cheaper.  LH $40pp TK $12pp

75k SQ + about $130 each

Same routing but only a 4 hour layover in FRA instead of 8. Now I just have to keep checking to see if the even earlier LH flight will open, leaving me with just 1 hr layover
