If I  use points, I can get them back if I cancel.
I don't know if Europe will be open enough this summer for me to vacation there.

AA flight.
How can I book it if I have no AA miles?   
I have Chase and Amex points but they don't transfer to AA.

You will get the points back to your mileage account, but they’d still be stuck there and can’t return to AMEX/Chase

Better than an airline credit.

Is this common?

I recently booked United economy flight EWR-TLV through priceline and when I tried to pick seat there was a charge to purchase even standard seats buy when I logged in the next day to the United itinerary there was no charge.

Is this a sly move by priceline?

so to clarify hc will never work the way there if you book a rt? because every airline from the normal carriers to ulllc will almost always cancel the return if you skip a leg the way there? so that means hc only applicable the way back? an that means you book 2 one ways on a non internation ticket that is not stopping in your real final destination?
Not almost always, they will always cancel the rest of the itinerary if you miss a single leg.

Some tickets can be 90% cheaper by just adding on an extra leg to the end of the itinerary.

I believe there may be discounts for groups of 10+
Any idea of numbers? Meaning percentage off? Or x amount off per a group of 10.
Depends on group capacity. Can vary widely on the same airline, depending on load factor, region, season etc

but then some say
group rates are normally expensive then buying seats one by one.
Not from my experience. Just some flexibility with paying and adding pax names.

FWIW
Google (airline) group rate desk.
