Yeah, midweek is easier. Just can't take off from work and looking to get away for a weekend to celebrate something big for DW.. wouldn't care to splurge for "business" if it would be available.

I keep on checking AA. How often do they update award space on this route? Did you notice any pattern?

Fluid. No pattern. Check NYC and each airport individually.

What data points do you need? Yes this thread is about bragging

For me, this thread shows what is theoretically possible and helps me up my game in terms of what I may try to achieve at a later date. I don't have every program or route memorized, and if I see someone here has booked an award I would perhaps want for myself but not know how to get, this is the start of figuring out next steps.

But to each their own.

BA TLV-LHR In J and then LHR-DEN in First, with only a short layover, only 80k Alaska points and $275 in taxes and fees. For so few points, reasonable fees, first class on the 747 and only one stop to Denver (which is so hard to find in premium cabins), Iím super happy!

Not only about flights, also about  redemption methods you weren't aware of.

This thread is certainly not exclusively helpful info. There is this:
Not only about flights, also about  redemption methods you weren't aware of.
As well as bragging and as Dan said just discussing our travel life.
