JFK-DXB-SIN. Separate ticket on GA to DPS.
Interesting. Does EK fly to DPS from DXB with a legitimate F? Or better to take it to SIN and then go to DPS after?

I guess it won't be the worst thing to make my SQ ticket DPS-SIN-FRA-JFK.

Slightly off topic, but what you guys use to keep track of flights, confirmations, hotels, cars, etc.. Do you use any programs or just make a excel sheet?

Tripit does the trick for complicated plans.

Otherwise I just use gmail labels.

and another. nice thing is that they pull it right out of your email, so as soon as you make the reservation they're on it.

Anyway to hold CX F for AA if AA schedule doesn't go that far but BA does? Don't want it closed out by the time AA updates they're schedule.
