Not enough time to really have a good meal service on that flight.

You can probably find empty rows in Y and stretch out if one wanted.

Yeah, even not in first class. Sad

I don't think there's much to worry if I obtain a valid visa.

All Americans arrested that I know of entered the country illegally or came for purposes other than tourism (like religion - Kenneth Bae).

Why not fly Air Koryo instead?

Can't seem to find a way to book online. Let alone an award booking.

But I agree Air Koryo would have more of a special experience.

AA has some amazing TATL availability right now in premium cabins starting from about September time.
MAD, FCO, LON, ZRH... have multiple dates with multiple seats open in business and first. You can even find space on the new 77W's and 767's.
There are even some scattered dates in the summer.
No TLV though.

Nice!

Saw yesterday on AA/BA availability on IB/AA in premium cabins. Aug 25/26 to be exact. But didn't think that its really open all along.. I think it was the first time I ever saw availability on AA LHR-JFK in J/F.

I'm booked in F and J in Mar, Apr, June, Aug and October.
It's interesting that they started to release those premium seats finally.
But I suspect that a devaluation is coming soon, otherwise they wouldn't have released.

I don't see the link,  if it had to do with the devaluation, why wouldn't they only released the space after the devaluation

I dont disagree that a devaluation will probably come once the us air & aa miles are in 1 program but I dont see the shaychis to them releasing the seats
