88k ANA, MR transfers over with a 2 day hold usually plus if you pay attention & compare you may see something sweet. Depends how aware you are.

Any hint? I know of a bunch of sweet spots but am not sure what you're referring to.

When booking RT ana allows 2 free each way. Now that they switched to region based, you can stick trailing flight to west coast for free

If you buy a round-trip on DL then there is no YQ

Correct,  But LHR-NYC by itself there will be YQ.

Would you rather fly direct or fly the best product with a connection?

Also, origin?
