Still unlikely that they're using one of the new ones with Q-Suites, I guess it's possible but I wouldn't count on it.

:) in a few days, or when they change their music on hold
Wow, impressed that you had 6+ hours to wait on hold.
   Don't blame you for hating their music.

 I really hope you enjoy this flight and it will make up for all the time spent booking this award.
 I'm assuming 750K UR is in J or Y? 
 And like lubaby mentioned. When you find a few minutes find a rep who would be willing to give you a few k worth of points after explaining what you went through.
 If only they would issue all 750k back! ;)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Unfortunately you were right....but hey the A350 is better then the A330 and he 787 with RJ is definitely better then the small planes they use

It's a departure tax. Can't be avoided.  But you can take a short flight out of LHR....
