See here for what the guy got.

It only says one coupon per transaction. So separate transactions...

Wow. I can't tell if I am more impressed that a 2 year old has taken that many flights or that his parents are crazy enough to fly that much with a kid!

If that's just actual flight time, how much time did you spend away from home?!

Flights:

67.5k AA per passenger for what ended up being BA FJFK-LHR-HND.
30k BA per passenger for CX F HND-HKG (infant was 10% of miles).
110k BA per passenger for CX F HKG-LAX (infant was 10% of miles).
37.5k BA per passenger for AA F LAX-JFK (infant was free).

Total miles used for flights:
135k AA
306k BA (transferred in from MR with 40% bonus for a lot of these miles).

Hotels:
HR Tokyo was on a paid stay using Hyatt Gift Certificates purchased at 15% off and booked using a discounted rate.
Conrad Tokyo was 32k HH a night and ~$119 a night
HR TST Hong Kong was C&P at 7500 a night and $100
how much were the taxes?
also can i specifically route JFK-SFO-HND?
If u work for a living, why kill urself working?

I don't recall the taxes for that route, but know it wasn't much. You can route JFK-SFO-HND.
