Too bad there's always such poor availability. When the time is right, I think a stopover is going to have to happen.

Going you could stop over in SFO and still get lie-flat.

Who cares? People who can't every 2 days get a new PCC.

AA/BA shuts down for holding their space
I was talking about QF shutting down.

Right. I haven't seen great SFO availability either.
And going direct would be nice :)

Since I'm watching this route:

EWR-HNL United Business Saver (at least 2)
3/2
3/5
3/9
3/10
3/23
3/24
3/30
Anyone have any experience if Plan B tends to work for this route?

I saw my desired date become available one day, but I hesitated, and it went away. Didn't realize yet at that point how rare this availability is.

TIA!

EWR-HNL United Business Saver Thursdays!!!  (at least 2)
3/5
3/26
4/9


Wish I had waited (grabbed a Sunday 4/5) gonna cost my wife 2-3 pto days on a ~10 night stay.  I could change but i'm sure we'll save on weekday hotel rates vs. Thur departure and 2 weekends.

CMIIW. But you don't need to be a 1k to be able to see what a 1k can see, just use expert mode. Am I missing something?
