Methinks you're SOL...
Did you check other airlines/alliances?
What date are you looking to fly?

Yup. That's what i thought too.

I'm booking a trip to Maldives/Thailand this summer and need to secure flights around Thailand. I'm looking to book two seats on each flight and prefer business class for my July 27th and August 4th flights. Hoping to utilize points (United and Chase) to keep costs down as much as possible. If anyone is familiar with intra-Thai travel your help would be greatly appreciated.

- July 27: MLE to Bangkok (Thai air or Bangkok Air)
- July 29: Bangkok to Chiang Mai
- August 1: Chiang Mai to Koh Samui
- August 4: Koh Sumai to HKG

Thanks!

Won’t be direct but Singapore Airlines would be a great option, lovely lie flat Business MLE-BKK.

Trying to book UIA JFK-KBP using UR (Expedia) in J.

The flight clearly shows up on Expedia.com, but not on the UR travel portal. Why?

Check AA, DL, UA, and B6 for their award rates and fares?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

BA not even showing up, Qantas was showing 68K - which about the same as AA with the transfer bonus
