Search BA's calendar to see space.

You can also check out these posts for info on availability trends to try and snag some space:

http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/11/05/cathay-pacific-releasing-less-award-space/

Good luck! I'm dying to fly CX F myself.

Best way to check is with Asia Miles

Cathay releases more award space for Asia Miles than to partners

Close in is when availability opens up. Not so easy to find in advance.
Thank you all!

Maybe not the perfect thread, but..

NYC-IST-TLV on Turkish vs NYC-GYD-TLV on Azerbaijan (both revenue),
Which one?

What fare class on TK? Would you earn miles anywhere?

Please don't just say Y or J? More specific please.

But I would go TK.

I should have been clearer with my question,
Both are Y, I'm asking which would be safer/more comfortable for me as a Jew (ok, I can tuck my peyis under my yarmulke ;) ).

Why would you go with Turkish over Azerbaijan?

Your not leaving airport so I would say both are the same safe.

I would go with TK. Nice Y seat and GYD is out of the way I think.

BTW you didn't answer D93s question.

Even at 58k it would still be worth it. Other than winter thats the cheapest way
