No reason to fly LH J over AB J, so wait until closer in when LH F opens.

Thought so. What about LO J 787 vs LH J 346 and shorter connection for JFK-BUD 6 hours in WAW vs 3 in FRA

I called and AA claims that AB is not releasing to them. Something changed over the last few months and no one is talking.
it seems like ab started releasing in waves for three months at a time

Just called them. YQ is $473. Adding an infant to the booking is only an additional $81! That's even cheaper than AC, no?

Yes, but AC doesn't charge YQ on UA.
