I don't want anything. Seems like you're taking a train from Belgium to JFK. For 63k FB points. Good job.  :o where is the facepalm emoji?
Great. Excellent redemption.

BOS-TLV
LY J 772
78,000 QF + AUD 47.30

(The other option I considered was BOS-YUL-TLV, AC J 333, 85,000 UA + $5.60. Despite its superior hard product, the long layover and suboptimal sleep-timing [departs YUL 16:15) led me back to the nonstop LY flight.)

Thanks! Just booked LHR-JFK in F for the return on their 747.

70K AS +$380

I know it's glorified J but my first time in international F and I wanted to have a chance to sit in the nose of a 747 before they are gone.

I recall seeing a TR somewhere —probably back a few years — that described a very nicely done kosher dining experience in BA F.  Maybe someone else can remember details?

BA serves Hermolis out of LHR, it will be way better than what you'll get in Y.

DL466 O, 72,000 FB +€23.XX
Was charged a phone booking fee, was sure it was phantom when it errored out online...

ETA: Not sure where I got 73,500, it was 72k even.
Transferred from 58k MR, inputting a 10+ CPP value when factoring normal online pricing.

Well done.
You can submit a request on flyingblue.us claiming that you weren't able to book it online and they will refund the $19.
