I saw that. If the ADD-YYZ on the 787 was available in J maybe, but I aint sitting on a plane in Y for 17+ hrs
TLV-ADD-FRA-ORD seems nice to me.

Even better TLV-ADD-VIE-ORD all in J besides TLV-ADD (which will may open up as well)

Or TLV-ADD-CAI-VIE-ORD, Lucky was recently at CAI IIRC.

You can even do TLV-ADD-KRT-CAI-VIE-ORD for that matter!

You can even routh through RUH or BEY if you want  :)

Held or booked?

I called the Germany office and had it on hold for a week! (They said 24hrs but never expired )

Ended up booking it this morning for 62.5 each as they thought PRG was in Europe #1.

Would love to find something more direct but no luck on my end (yet..)

I wanna do a Maldives trip and I wanna do JFK-ICN-HKG-MLE-SIN-PVG-JFK.

I wanted to do JFK-HKG, and SIN-PVG-JFK in F/R for 160K KE miles, a separate award HKG-DXB-MLE with EK miles, and a separate award MLE-SIN with SQ. HOWEVER, Meir613 claims that I can not do an open jaw with KE from a different region, so I can't arrive in HKG and leave from SIN, so Ill have to leave from PVG and book a separate award SIN-PVG.

I wanna leave MLE on Thursday afternoon, my only/best option to catch the flight Friday out of PVG 11:30 AM would be MLE-SIN on SQ and SIN-PVG on MU.

Or I can just return on EY ....but I am not getting to see SQ F and moreover MU R.

Any experts care to chime in?

Very very nice.

Not so easy to get AC to hold.

62.5k AC is a bargain compared to UA 80k, plus no YQ.

I would keep it unless you can find something to LAX direct or EWR then connect to the once daily PS flight, but you risk them charging you an extra 10k.
