keep (me) us updated with SPG transfer time + yq details as/if you book this. Thanks!
So here u go
Spg transferred Saturday night posted Monday and those transferred Sunday posted Friday, it looks like they transfer twice a week

EK F JFK - MXP with JAL is 100k RT and $57

Jal can't book infant need to call EK

Changes are free (could only change up to 4 days before flight)
Cancellation is 3100 ($28) or 3100 miles

to my knowledge only for UA they dont charge, could be I'm wrong but thats what I always understood

I looked into it and apparently they dont either charge YQ for Air Canada, Air China, Air New Zealand, Avianca, and Copa

Always like that. I had the same thing when booking PG flight. Just gotta call partner airline to have infant added to res and pay taxes.

Etihad, 21,972 in Y RT & 36,620 in J RT + $95 in taxes for travel on SN.

Its an amazing redemption, maybe the best value in the industry
Which points transfer to Etihad? How difficult is it to book?
