LH EWR-FRA-TLV J
3 passengers
240K UA + $122
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

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

Taxes were $50 CAD and phone booking fee was $30 CAD, couldn't get the rep to waive it and I wasn't interested in trying again so I juts paid it, total was $63 USD IIRC.

From where does it seem like this? From the one OMAT speculating this just based on the coincidence of a similarly timed sale? I can't imagine this wasn't a mistake, but i hope it gets honored. Surprised dan didn't post about it.

On the QR site it was listed as a special "Golden Ticket" offer...
