What's the best way to book if want to fly to TLV but wouldn't mind to visit two european cities on the way out like ZRH and BUD ? Sounds like much cheaper to fly first to LHR then go to ZRH then BUD then continue to TLV, thoughts?

cheapest way JFK to PHX?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I'm booking a trip to Maldives/Thailand this summer and need to secure flights around Thailand. I'm looking to book two seats on each flight and prefer business class for my July 27th and August 4th flights. Hoping to utilize points (United and Chase) to keep costs down as much as possible. If anyone is familiar with intra-Thai travel your help would be greatly appreciated.

- July 27: MLE to Bangkok (Thai air or Bangkok Air)
- July 29: Bangkok to Chiang Mai
- August 1: Chiang Mai to Koh Samui
- August 4: Koh Sumai to HKG

Thanks!

What's the best way to get to SYD or AKL?  Not asking in terms of least miles, rather what typically has decent availability without waiting too close in.
Does anyone have an answer to this?

Hi,
Can you please help me with booking a ticket?

What is the cheapest way to travel from Israel to Brusell's in 2 weeks?
$180 ticket cash, or miles? Should I go through Avianca, United, AA or Flying Blue or Chase?
Which is the cheapest option for airline program mileage? Thank you very much for your help

I don't know if there's a quicker way, but I would go to each airline's site and see what's available and at what cost.
Keep in mind: 
AA and United charge a $75 close in fee for reservations closer than 3 weeks.
If you value points at 1 point per dollar, then $180 is the equivalent of 18,000 points.  But getting such a small value for your points is cheating  yourself;  they're worth more!

Methinks you're SOL...
Did you check other airlines/alliances?
What date are you looking to fly?
