Not sure why that's something to be proud of, other than the ridiculous YQ, i like them.

You just answered my question and in addition their F= Best J class at best.

BA1 supposedly has a private jet feel to it, especially when empty.

Hence why it's a cool redemption.

I'm booked on a modified Qsuites for Sept IIRC.
Qsuites isn't avail.
This has a special appeal to me.
Qsuites is a full 2 stops back home, while this isn't exactly 2.
Modified Qsuites?

Ultimately I'm always right

Was referring to which program and how many miles you had booked the flight with.
Booked the JFK-NBO-SEZ through flyingblue for 115k miles + huge fees per person.
SEZ-HRE was 15k United
I don't remember how many miles the HRE-NBO-AMS-NYC was but it was through FB also so probably similar amount of miles (I was a bit tipsy when I got the notification to book the flights).

Yep. Nearly $600 YQ/departure tax. Hope to tack on a TLV-LHR leg to lower it to under $300, almost certainly won't ticket it otherwise.

Glad some people understand why it's special ;)
Added RJ for now. Taxes lowered to just over $300.
Should go down another $10 or so with the Jordanian fees removed if BA will open

JFK-ZRH-BKK with LX 2 I class with infant. 155k AC with 20% bonus from MR. No fuel surcharge.
SIN-MLE with MI coach. 37k SQ for 2 seats.
MLE-SIN-TPE-JFK with SQ and BR 2 seats I class with infant. 150k AC with 20% bonus transfer. No fuel surcharge.
Jan.-Feb. 2k20
AC is definitely the best for infant!!

Held and intend to ticket SQ 787-10 J SIN-SGN for 21.5k+$49.80 SGD.
Just noticed an aircraft swap to a 333, seems they are not operating the Dreamliners on this route any longer (as indicated below). I was doing this to try SQ's new short-haul J, so now with the swap I'll have to decide whether to do it, or do something else.

Held with AA.
DAD-DOH QR 788 J
DOH-AMM RJ 321 J
AMM-TLV RJ E75 J
Just 39 and change in fees.
Probably won't ticket, hoping for QR ex-DOH, or at least RJ Dreamliner.
Seems AA just got ticketing rights for ex-DAD with QR, still don't have into DAD
Changed DOH-AMM to QR 77W, ticketed as F.
I just wish there would be an RJ flight to TLV some time between 7am and 5:25 PM, not exactly the nicest airport for a long layover...

Here is the current summer plans, with red being fake J, green being J and blue for F.
The one Y flight missing there isn't booked yet.



A total of over 28k miles on the following airlines;
RJ
EY
SQ
KA
CX
QR

Take the taxi to Allenby Bridge and cross over...we dont do busses on DD but taxis are ok.

Another $70 for a Visa, here on DDF we don't use cash for our travels.
If I wasn't taking that part solo I'd probably take the 11PM flight and go to Aaron Hakohen/Petra. (Well, would depend how much that would cost, hopefully I'll do that one day from Eilat.)
