March. Unlike AEP-IGR which is just a few miles over the 650, this one is at a healthy 600.

:) - Was a hard call between Victoria Falls and Kruger. Ultimately VF won because of A) amount of time we have B) ability to fly there for 9k avios.

Ummm....

DEN-OGG 2 pax in J

Too busy at work right now, but expect lots of Hawaii talk over the weekend as LH gave me till Monday to change/cancel since they're closed on the weekends.

But for now, I can finally post in this thread and... I'M BOOKED TO HAWAII!!!! Thank G-d.

And to pre-empt those who will get on me for domestic J, it's 7 hours and I have plenty of LH to burn, so I figured why not be more comfortable?

There are some days when DEN-HNL/OGG have lie-flats.
Have you looked at the seat map?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

And to pre-empt those who will get on me for domestic J, it's 7 hours
I think I'm backtracking on my current mindset about domestic J, during my 4 hour eastjet flight this past Thursday I was going out of my mind. Never again (probably)

We take the 4 hour trip NYC-DEN a few times a year, and I'm kinda okay with Y for that amount of time (although it's SW, so there isn't even domestic J :P) but I do hear that for sitting on a longer route with a spouse, it would be much nicer to have a bit of a bigger seat and no one else sitting next to you.

Personally I rather go with an exit seat than domestic F.

AA LAX-DFW-JFK-GRU in J, 12 hour stopover in JFK to get food  :)
Hoping to switch to direct LAX-JFK when it opens.

JFK-GRU IS on TAM, seems that the seats are angled lie flat. Hopefully AA 77W will open availability at some point.
