Nah haha I like this itinerary. I wanna do Cathay on the A350 since last time I flew Cathay I barely missed it. Although if QR was available from BKK to HAN I'd take that instead.

Got this on hold with AA. It's over mpm so they wanna charge me 72.5k, will probably just book TLV-AMM with BA:


And now they have another reason to overcharge you...

How does that price work? You transferred MR somewhere or you didn't have enough points, so you had to pay cash for the remainder?

This sounds like a nightmare of travelling. To each their own.

I guess if your goal is the just fly and you're alone or with someone else who likes flying it'd be ok, though I agree, it sounds a bit rough for me (even alone).

I transferred MR to BA to IB with the 40% bonus.


The cash is the taxes and fees.

What's their schedule for A330 on TLV-MAD?
How long is the layover?
I thought you can't do a OW on IB award redemption, or is that restriction only on partner awards?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

QR F DO! There's still more availability if anyone else wants to come.
