Thanks Dan.
That post lists JFK-YVR in J for 25K BA. It is now 37.5K BA as per phone rep.

Can you offer any input on redeeming flights on PR?

Use Hybrid points.
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.

that would be 66K as the ticket is pricing at $1,000
IIRC they partner with EK and ANA however I do not have account with EK and cant check the price/availability.

ETA: 62.5K EK on PR from JFK to YVR.

the Qantas flight is not a 5th freedom, but possible to book as a stopover award with AS continuing to Australia eventually

This is by very definition impossible. The fifth freedom allows an airline to carry revenue traffic between foreign countries as a part of services connecting the airline's own country.

While this may be able to be booked, do you know of anyone who has actually flown that... it's officially cabbatoge.

It's not impossible, it would be under the 8th freedom, which the USA doesnt allow

Yes I know someone who booked and flew it

Air Canada (AC):
EZE-SCL

Just added this to the wiki.

Looks like EZE is the 5th Freedom capital.
KLM now services this same route.
13.5k FB in Y
34k FB and up in J

Operating 77W AFAIK
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Not exactly a 5th freedom but an interesting route nonetheless:
