If I'm flying out of CNX, and my destination is NYC. Besides for flying CX, via HKG, are there any other route options, that I'll only have to fly 2 flights ?

I just wrote about this and similar. Check my last posts (on mobile)

I missed the F part first and after looking it seems that you are correct and KE is the way to go for F.

You can put KE flights on hold for free for a few months (depending how far away flight dates are), not sure about partners.

Partners can only be held for 24 hours.

I read in articles that where your computer is located changes the price of the itinerary. I didn't understand the meaning of this until i got a VPN.  Can i alter the price of my ticket by altering the IP address to another country? (Is this a thing that needs a thread:)

Any ideas of getting from South Africa back to the US. First class is optimal, but Business will work as well. Three passengers.
