If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

KRK-JFK in J or F
Have AC, UR, AA and BA
Also have AB reserved through AA on that route, so need to cancel (with fee).
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

best J value is on AB for 50k + no YQ
best F value is via A3 60k (LH F) <50k SPG wow> + YQ

I'm not following.
KRK-JFK? Who flies that route nonstop?
LH flies via FRA, but does AB even fly that route at all?
