Thanks all. I reserved OS and LX for seat config. UA didn't let me course seats or KSML how do I do that? I guess I will find the right thread for that.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Do it on the respective airlines website, you should be able to do it as soon as it gets ticketed, try calling LX and getting a throne seat

The way Swiss's cabin is set up you end up with some single J seats which are kind of like a throne hence the nickname, Google it. They're supposed to be reserved for HON circle members but sometimes you can convince a phone agent to seat you in one.

I am seeing saver I JFK>TLV on TK(777-300/A321), OS(767-300/A321), LH(747-8/A321) and TLV>JFK on LX(A330-300/A330-300), TK(A321/A330-300) on UA for 140k. Any better way to book those or better options?
Isnt it 160k on UA. Also AC has no YQ on LX or TK and you pay fees in CAD so it may be cheaper. Its 82500 OW with AC
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Yes that was typo. AC would have saved $50 for 5k pts but would have been only TK which was that price on UA as well. There is no LX avail on their site and OS is $700CAD in fees

That looks like it is the "Privacy Seat" which it seems they are charging $99 for. Interestingly on the TLV-ZRH leg all of the B seats look greyed out. Any idea why? I think I will move this to the FC/BC product thread.

I wonder what they do if you book after all other seats have been reserved.
