I figured. The problem is I don't have enough stockpile of UR, or SPG to book with KE. Oh well.
You can put KE flights on hold for free for a few months (depending how far away flight dates are), not sure about partners.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

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.

LH F...

*Noob alert*

Is CX J and F (HKG) an option?

And what's the best way of booking each of the aforementioned? Would I be correct in saying:

The first 4 - UA
QR - AA
EK - AS
EY - ?

You ignored KLM, AF, VS, DL - purposefully?

It is but I don't think that he is looking to travel an extra 12 hours.

Was mentioning mostly the better programs he would enjoy on a longhaul flight in J/F. My list is not exhaustive.

that would mean YQ, right?
EY - AA
They would count that as 2 separate awards, no?
My list is not exhaustive.

Appreciated very much. I'm planning this exact trip, so I'm just making sure the options I'm thinking of are correct.

Yes. But less miles and can use Amex to transfer.

Correct. Only QR will book this as one award via DOH if both flights are on QR.
