I thought they only gave the new amenity kits on planes with the new suites?

It was introduced at the same time of the new suites, though it is given on all suites flights.

Do they plan on replacing all the 388s with the new suites?

Is there a plan listed somewhere of when they will do each route?

Just booked JFK-ZRH for 79,500 LM for a family member. One way economy (only 16,500 for some reason!) and return in business for 63,000. In economy return would have been 30,000. Economy cash prices are now $1,898 and $8,780 in business for those dates! I'm not sure how to price out a round trip one way in economy and one way in business to compare exact prices to see value gotten.

Thanks! $5,333.73 So that would be $5,333.73-$103.14=$5,230.59/79,500=~6.6 cents per mile value.

Is there any way to choose a seat for free for the economy leg before online check-in opens up?

Nice, how did you get that flight for 30k? Saver space opened up? Also, you can use a GPU on award flights?

Ah. GS can apply GPU's to other people's award flights, too? Or only their own?
