Having to take out a mortgage for $350 is a pretty bad sign.

The real YQ is charged ex-usa.

EWR-ATH in EK F for 85K + $170
Does EK only charge Y?

Because it comes up as reg F YQ, did it change already?

Looks like they're charging full F YQ again, both on EK and QF. Unless i'm missing something.

See the post i quoted. AS is more than double the miles, and harder to come by.

That's like suggesting that because the price of copper went up, you should just use gold.

Was on other blogs.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It was around for quite some time before it was posted here, shortly after that some blogs "found the glitch on their own" and then it died, I most certainly don't think it's unrelated.

Booked UA 84/85 for early December, Plan B award. Actually booked a while ago, but UA85 just cleared! Are seats 1D and 1G the best for a couple?

Finalized all our flights for our Safari/Seychelles trip  for next year:

4X QR-J LAX-DOH-NBO, SEZ-DOH-LAX - Portal pay with points $3800/pp X 4 - 1.013 million UR (two separate accounts) Didn't have a ton of flexibility for the safari so instead of chancing it with ideal award availability just decided to pay with points since it was a decent price.

4X KQ J NBO-JRO 54,000 Flying Blue + $272 fees (flights were retailing around $200pp)
4X KQ J NBO-SEZ 158,000 Flying Blue + $612 fees (flights were retailing around $1375/pp and this is the only airline that flies direct NBO-SEZ)
