LAX-South Asia or South Pacific with points.

I currently have a hold on 2 RT LAX-PPT in February for 150K AA. Any better options?

Yes.

Think maybe from JAL as one option.

Don't think it is worth it. Can find those flights for under $40 OW.

Yes.
For PG you can use FB/JAL/EY/AB/CX.
For TG you can use any *a partner.

Although it's really not worth it being that paid flights cost ~$40.

I think JAL has a 5k promo though as everyone else said it's usually the cheapest and easiest to just go revenue

Hi, if this has been answered elsewhere, please forgive me. I did search....
I am interested in using AA to TLV.
I want to originate in BOS and want to fly in J.
Thinking about BOS-DUS-TLV or BOS-DOH-AMM-TLV:

1. For BOS-DUS-TLV: is BOS-DUS (on AB) bookable by phone with AA yet? And could I include DUS-TLV (which stops in TXL) on the same award ticket?

2. For BOS-DOH-AMM: I can see availability on BA for each leg. I presume I need to PUTPAC AA to book? Is there any way to include AMM-TLV on the same award ticket? (and where do I look for RJ availability?)

Thanks in advance.

PUTPAC should work.

Go with option 2!

Somehow, I knew you would say that, even though it's only the A350 and "only" in J, not F.  And you think I can include the AMM-TLV leg on the same ticket?

It is a pretty nice J. I think so.
