Y saver wasn't available, was the same price as J. but even if it were available, I probably would've still booked J.

LAX-MSP-LHR in July, Delta One: 86k + $5 (had 34k balance with Delta mostly due to comp from missed kosher meals)

LGW-LAX Norwegian UK Premium (day flight): 60k UR + $280. Was on the fence about this but the only other option that was reasonable was 70k UA +$280 to connect through Warsaw on LOT, plus the Norwegian flight is afternoon and the LOT flight was AM.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

How did you do that? Paying $600 per “open a saver award seat”, need 6.

Is he "bragging"? I thought this thread was to provide data points, not to brag.

Is posting in the WAYPFN thread also bragging?
It's about sharing what's going on in our travel lives.
