If something is available on VS is it automatically available to book with DL, or do they have more award space for flying club?
Reread my question.

What does it mean to "hold" an itinerary?

depending on the airline with miles you can put a tikcket on hold. Meaning you have the seat reserved you just need to pay for it a few days later. It varies with each airline

Mileage run? What's the point of the multiple r/t's?

He only needed LHR-JFK and NYC-IBZ for next week. That alone was $3100 as he needed a very specific flight.
I added an open jaw LHR-JFK and it dropped the price to $1400. Then I just kept going :)
Booked 3 flights for less than the price of one.

Amazing! Makes the $1900 in J LAX - FCO seem like a bad deal.
