DAD-DOH   QR   788   J
DOH-AMM   RJ    321   J
AMM-TLV    RJ    E75   J   

Again, after the last hold fell off.
36k AA (after 10% back) +$70 or so.
Gotta decide today if I want to ticket it.
Gotta burn those AA miles today for the 10% off  ::)
This wasn't what I had in mind, but thanks for the reminder.
Still struggling with that flight...

Requested ticketing
Costed just $39.50 I assume the original quote I was given had a booking fee included.

Really, really not. I'm pretty sure all of DDF knows this. There is actually a thread dedicated to this (which I'm too lazy to pull up]
 wasn't the thread removed a while ago?

Thanks.
It was weird how I quoted you.
I thought I was quoting @jew but the quote expanded to include you as a source.
Maybe a Tapatalk glitch, or just @zow’s incompetency?

Nope @Jew messed up the quote, so unless you went out of your way to fix it it would be a messed up quote when you quote him

sorry sorry, was using an annoying slow device so had no patience and just left it, figuring you would understand... :)
There was something else there besides for the UA close in fee that I was referring to though.

Originally I had

LAX-IAH AA J (50K AA) ,IAH-DXB EK F , DXB-MLE EK F (300K AS) booked

But I had some expert flyer alerts and was able to change my flights to

LAX-SFO AS F, SFO-DXB EK F, DXB-MLE EK F , there was a minor time change on my original itinerary so AS made the changes for no charge.

For now I am going to hold on to the LAX-IAH leg and hope there is some sort of change to the itinerary so I can refund the points without fees.. but worst comes to worst ill end up paying to get the points back.

A couple minor updates on this.. The LAX-IAH initial leg had a schedule change of about 30 minutes, I was able to cancel this flight, get the points redeposited and have the redeposit fee waived.

Also, the DXB-MLE EK F leg plane has changed from the old 777 to the new 777, so pretty excited to get to try out the new suite... even for a shorter flight. So will get to be on EK F A380 and New 777, EY F, A380 and AA Flagship F A321T on this upcoming trip in a few months. Pretty excited.
