BKK-TLV in J/F (with infant)?
Would rather not fly RJ.

Even for just the AMM-TLV leg?

Is that preference worth double the miles?

Anyone else here hear about FB and PG terminating their relationship? Just called FB to book flights and they said that they terminated their relationship on 12/23/15. HUCA'd and got the same response. If this is actually the case, what are the award options for CNX-USM and from USM-HKG?

FRA-VIE:

(cash seems to currently be at $225 ow)

15k UA + $46
12.5k AC+$90
12.5k SQ + YQ

Not sure what to choose or if I am missing any specific option I should be looking into.

Check a RT. It's usually cheaper then OW inter-Europe.

Random date in March is $225 for OW and $120 for RT.

If you get these prices for your dates, pay cash and don't feel guilty about throwing away the return.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Found for $165 for the flight I need. Seems that cash it is. Thanks Lubaby.

No problem.

Check other return dates (or even Multi-City destinations). Might still come out cheaper ($20-$30).

Any tips as to popular dates or cities for this?

You can book PG with JAL, AB, CX, and EY.

If I'm redeeming Asia Miles for a PG flight, is the only way to do it through the online form and wait for them to call you, or can it be done over the phone? Having some trouble getting through to them because it keeps telling me that my FFN isn't valid and there's no such thing as pushing "0" to speak to a rep with them.  >:(
