I think it depends on where you're going to/from.

Is there generally more availability to or from Asia in F on KE, SQ, JAL, etc?  Reserving one way on CX pre-deval and trying to figure out which direction I should reserve.

F, J or Y?

ETA: I think the answer is KE regardless though.

 ;)

I need to clarify...  is there generally more availability TO Asia,  or FROM Asia on any of the non-CX options.    My post wasn't clear.

IME KE was pretty open in both directions. Didn't seem like much of a difference.

I think via ANA (if you have MR points).  Only 65k RT and they will allow a stopover

Should be 104k rt with NH if im not mistaken & you can make a stop. UA also allows a stop on RT bookings
