I hear.
But if his ticket is a revenue ticket he would be almost aa platinum from this itinerary itself, so it might pay

No, no. Not even close.

why?
SFO- LHR - HND is only 11k miles
But to qualify on points he should be up there in the 50k range.

Reminds me of when my CLE-DFW-LHR-AMS-HKG-BKK-HKT became CLE-DFW-SFO-HKG-BKK-HKT due to a LHR snowstorm.

JFK-LHR-HND = 9425 mi.

9425 x 1.5 = 14,137 points.

Platinum needs 50,000.

I thought it's SFO - LHR - HND
and I mixed up with the new DL chart

Going to try doing a return, DAD-HAN-ICN-ATL-CLE using 70k DL, but gotta call up and hope the CS knows Vietnam Airlines is a partner.

Summer is a great time to visit San Francisco, breezy but not cold like rest of the year. Book Alcatraz tickets weeks in advance though.

Thanks.
Decided this rather than JNB which would mean running around with the kids. This we can rent a house with a pool. Kids don't need to run around. Brought a BIL who will babysit a little (hopefully we'll be able to do RTH).

Sounds like fun!
Wouldn't adding a leg be stopover + OJ?

Push it to 10 days and do both islands in one shot?
