90K RT EU to South Pacific in F? Impossible. Especially since you cannot transit Middle East on such an award, which means you'd need two awards.

Where's the $435 from?

ETA:

It's 90K one-way. 30K J award EU-ME + 60K F award ME-South Pacific.

UK taxes and fees. Plus booking fee.
It's J Both ways on the MAN-AUH route. And F both ways from AUH-MEL.

As I pointed out above, that's not 90K RT, that's 90K OW.

Forgot about MAN also being assessed UK-duty taxes. Sick.

Two disconnected calls, three hours of research, four hours on the phone with Delta, five reservation agents, deleting legs, ticketing, adding the legs back, and then reticketing right as the window to book this type of ticket closes forever, and it's done.

All in business except for the first JFK-LAX leg.

4 days in BOB and 7 days in MEL.

Most I usually see is 3 at a time. 

Actually saw some availability from ORD to HKG in F for Jan 14- was searching for someone. They didn't end up booking.
