What Award Itinerary Did You Just Book/Hold?

SIN-ZRH-FRA-IAD, SQ R/ LH F.
Also, this gives me no time for any lounge in FRA so I'm going to try to get onto the later JFK flight if/when it opens.
Either way, I'm super excited.
Was a long saga but SQ lounge agent was finally able to rebook me on SIN-FRA instead of SIN-ZRH-FRA. Had to pay the $75 for late change fee + $20 ticket re-issue fee but I'm getting $77 SGD back in YQ so not that bad. Now I get 5+ hrs in FCT

Nice!!
Yep, I waitlisted it and then got them to clear it and reissue. It was not easy because the lounge agent had to work through the incompetent Kris flyer phone rep. Was an amazing flight!

Holding 2 AZ J JFK-TLV tickets booked with AZ miles for mid-April.

You guys think I'm safe? They extended the time for AZ to recieve offers until April 30.

No one scared me off so i booked...


The rep told me that an infant is only $148 (the tax on the award). Is that accurate? I thought they charge 10% of revenue flight.

Didn't have to waitlist SQ. Booked it when schedule opened via app trick. Booked CX F 331 days out (I'm a planner) via the AUS call center since US couldn't see any space.
