Nice! When is this?

ETA: Cannot find one review online of this product, even though it's been out for almost a year!

Found one, but not on a long haul.

The internet was waiting one year for you to do it. Today, they gave up.

JFK - LAX AA Y
LAX - JFK AA J

14.5k TY points roundtrip.

Booked a while back, original routing was Y both ways LGA-DFW-LAX-DFW-LGA. Had some minor schedule changes, so was able to switch it to current routing.

You booked Y and they rebooked you in J?

They rebooked in full fare class Y for return, which is upgradable for +5,000 miles to J. -~5,000 miles earned.

ORD-HKG CX J booked for 50K AS x2 pax
will add on HKG-SYD in CX J for additional 10K AS per pax when it opens up
SYD-MEL is ~$100/pax for flight in Y, only 1.5 hrs no biggy.
Am considering adding on AKL while down there.
also held MEL-AUH EY F A380 for 2 pax today, will use 60K AA ea. Waiting for some SPG transfers to go through to AA.

I'm almost out of miles. Any good ideas to get back home? AUH-something-NYC/ORD?

Plenty of time to accumulate more miles.

Maybe fly back on EK from DXB.

Random thing I realized: since I am going around the world going west instead of going east, I gain significantly more time to do things.

True.. although my credit is pretty bad now, made some dumb mistakes, so will have to wait bunch of months to do anything...

But thanks!!

You will be away for 7 days and not counting travel. You may have more time, but "significant" may be pushing it.
