Two days shabbos so it would have to be more like 12 and I don't have that kind of time. Makes more sense to have more time anyways as I won't be packing or in with the kids
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Awesome!
You're doing four flights in a row by yourself or with the kiddies?

Thought that would work last time when both parents joined us, but instead I babysat as all the adults got cheap massages.

Just a bit related to this thread ;)

If I hold a reservation on AA, and when I book it, its in the 21 day frame, is there a $75 fee, or cuz it was put on hold before 21 days of departure there is no fee?

TIA

I believe it goes by date of ticketing.

Just finished booking the return from Thailand this Nov.

Whole trip is for the wife and I

BIL-SEA Alaska Econ
SEA-LAX Alaska Econ
LAX-HKG CX Business
HKG-BKK CX Business

then some local flights around Thailand, Bangkok up to Chiang Mai then to Krabi and back to BKK for the above in reverse. Will look to upgrade to first on the outbound as time draws near.

220,000 R/T using American miles and if we can upgrade to first on the outbound it will add another 25,000.

I hope I can survive the first 8 hours without a shower.

Nope. I don't have (enough) AS miles.

178,750 EK miles + $394.94

At least I was able to:
-Book for travel in April
-Request complimentary chauffeur pickup service

Both of the above blocked for AS awards.

But, provided you had more than 18k AS, you would have come out ahead had you sold the extra 78k MR and booked with AS.

I have 32k AS in my account and 32 in my wife's.

I was not gonna make my name or my accounts dirty to save on 80k MR (which is easier to earn than peeling an apple).

Is this round 2 for you to DPS?

You think AS\EK F issue is still  a Glitch?
