Eastbound doesn't make much sense.

See random videos thread. I posted an interesting one that mentions KSC (I think).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Which Airline, LO or OS?

We were the only plane in KSC last time I was there 2 years ago. I'm booked with LO in September.

5X British Airways LCA-TPA via LGW for peak August date.  Long leg is in Premium Economy 40K AA + $250 per ticket.

5X El Al FCO-TLV in economy, peak August date. 7500 Alaska + $50 per ticket.  Current cash price is about $550/ticket! Booked to self connect to Israel from 5X AA Premium Economy  LGA-PHL-FCO, also booked on 52K points + $5.60 per ticket.  Hoping to ultimately shift that to the JFK-FCO nonstop for 40K each instead (premium econ).

Would have loved to get this as the FCO-TLV self connect leg, but the El Al flight for 7500 Alaska was too good to pass up.

Amazingly, 5 seats in business at 57.5K + $24 opened up on JFK-LHR-LCA, with JFK-LHR being on AA which is why taxes were so cheap.  So I switched to this from Premium Econ to Rome.  From LCA-Israel, I had to fork over 200 euros per ticket (oddly enough for Cyprus Airways new business class on their A220, which was cheaper than all other economy alternatives...) since we're talking last week of August with no points availability and crazy summer vacation prices.

booked yul - sfo - mel in economy for 60k ac a few weeks ago [1st leg ac metal, 2nd ua]

last week the ac leg opened up lowest saver price for j, so upgraded to 87.5 with 1st leg in business with hope of getting 2nd leg later on..changed on website was not charged change fee since kept the same flight

the ua leg now opened in business, the website showed the option to get both legs now in business [only since i already had it. a new booking would be 166k]. but couldnt process it. i called in and the upgraded and waived the change fee after i explained to them that the 1st time they didnt charge me...

so yul - sfo - mel in j for 87k
