Why did you do that?
Because you think that they didn't notice this?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Unfortunately already had President's day and Pesach booked (although President's day with TYP and Pesach with WS $104 deal). So I have summer, Succos, Thanksgiving and end of December X5, plus a trip to ORD in the summer X5, plus booked for some family to come to us in the summer X6

I feel selfish. I booked myself a YYZ-JFK every weekend for the next ~6 months.

That would be pretty expensive, being as you still have to fly in (and avios are up to 7.5k).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Every second Shabbos?

I've been doing it for a while. I have too many Avios for my own good.

Tentatively booked every Thursday for the next few months, even though most was only available in J... The way I look at it, I will likely never be able to swallow 15k for a 1-way flight to YYZ J or not, so might as well enjoy it until the end of the era. Which is tonight... And ofc, the fact that if E opens up for any of these flights I'll just refund the points pay $7 and get back 1.5k Avios  8)

So I can basically justify flying J by asking myself: would I cough up 1.5k for a biz class upgrade? yes.

Alot of transcons from YVR were available in Feb/Mar including to places like Florida. Travel on/after April increased the airfare.

Yes, I was very lucky to find them to PHL in May. It's tempting to get a free transcon but price-wise it may actually end up being more.

I've already paid $10 pp for LAX-YVR on 5/11 and 250 miles each for YVR-LAX on 5/13 and YVR-PHL on 5/18. Need to be in LA 5/13-5/15. So the options are:
$93 BWI-LAX on 5/11 and $93 LAX-BWI on 5/16, going to YVR before LAX. Problem here is very early morning drives between PHL and BWI, one right after a redeye. Also a 1 hr 15 min connection in LAX from Alaska to WestJet, which are in different terminals and may not even check bags through.
OR
~$150 EWR-LAX or BWI-LAX on 5/13 and $92 LAX-YVR, hoping for AA economy saver space to open up for PHL-LAX on 5/13 (12.5k avios is more than $150 but it's worth it to fly out of PHL), going to YVR after LAX.

Currently I have the first option booked on AS, refundable until 60 days before, so there is plenty of time to wait for other options to arise. That's the best part about these glitch tickets, they are basically free!!
