Nice! As I suspected ;)

Yes, I also suspected that in the end I would get that award. It's just crazy how I must have checked that award at least 100 times, that's three or four times every day for the past month.

I was referring on what time of the day they release seats and how close to the flight they release and how many they release at a time?

Trying to convince my friend to book the following for next summer.
TLV - HKG - MNL - SYD

45k AA miles in J

He needs 7 seats, and all the legs have except for final one which currently has 5 seats available, and 2 more in Y.

Ah okay, just though they were stops since everyone here seems to love those places ;) but then couldn't figure out how it was so few miles. It's nice to find that avail but I wouldn't be in love with 2 stops.

Yea, ideally he'd get the direct flight on Qantas or CX but they currently have a max of 1 seat in J.

I'd have no issues doing 2 stops if it were without children.

For that matter, I'd be interested in doing the Pacific Island Hopper if it were without children, but they can complicate matters  :)
