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!

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.

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.

Yes, I called and the just cancelled and rebooked. Was so worried that availability would disappear as the rep was slow as molasses. They wanted to charge me $55 change fee per ticket x 4. I said just cancel and rebook and she did with the new $5.60 per ticket. Surprisingly short wait on hold. Called around 8am.

Thanks. Checking multiple times a day for availability to open on the day I need it. Cash prices are sky high. Still over 2 weeks out though.

I just checked by accident. Was booked into EWR. Saw it and couldnt book it on BA.com Last time I tried to get the flight by the time I got on the phone with the rep (20 minute hold) the availability was gone. Keep checking, multiple times a day. The AA app is pretty good these days to check availability.
