How long in each place?
About a week and half in BKK and SYD and about 15 hours in PEK.

D93 is the pro with Israel-Asia (and other places  :) ) but in all probability via UA with a free stopover for RT travel

You're going to stay in BKK for a week and a half? Why not see other parts of Thailand?

I'm almost positive "BKK" doesn't refer to the city Bangkok, rather the country Thailand, and he'll book intra Thailand flights seperately.

He needs 1 stopover and one connection. So he could use UA for 120k in J.

Correct.

No need to fly RJ past AMM, he can fly EY and QR as well.

Need to fly from NYC to MAN in the beginning of July Y class. Using miles are my 2 best options AA and United? Which of the 2 is better?
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.
