Bump.
No way a 2am post with the baby crying doesn't have some typos or parts that need clarification.
"Now you may wonder, according the the off-peak chart above, a flight to Asia in September ought to be a peak award, which would cost 32.5K miles."

Same thing further down the page about Brazil and Europe.

"Here is are Americanís old off-peak dates for awards that Alaska still uses for American awards:"

"Letís say you want to fly from Paris to NYC on March 21 and NYC to Cancun on on 11/13. You can take advantage of a free stopover and pay just 20K miles for the whole thing:"

Several missing commas and hyphens, nothing else all that important though.

Read through it, call made sense to me. The examples are good. Too bad it's irrelevant to me :(

Not too concerned with commas unless they change the meaning of the post. Not going to be submitted for a grade or for publication in the NYT/WSJ :)

Why?
Because I look forward to the vacation that I get while my kids are in school on Xmas, particularly the two hours the baby is sleeping. That's about all the getting away I can hope for these days.
I am tremendously grateful, not complaining, but the HNL-HKG sounds nice

Aside from grammar, etc, the fact that AS still offers a stopover on awards means this isn't as bad a deval as it otherwise would be. Not so concerned personally.

Coupled with the fact that most people like to use their AS for things other than flying on AA and it really isn't that big of a deal. Still nice for anyone who can take advantage of it before it's gone though.

Can't win with that. People will be angry on both sides of that coin.
Who ever learned things from the seminars have no right to complain IMO

Everything that would be said at a seminar given now can be learned either here or elsewhere online with enough time, commitment and research.
Being in Yeshiva doesnít really help for that

Once people know something that feel ownership of it. Doesn't matter where it came from.

https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/airlines/airline-news/el-al-sending-new-plane-take-diverted-passengers-goose-bay-air-force-base-tel-aviv/

Is it a typo where it says "google bay"?

Quote
The plane landed safely, but the high temperature today in Google Bay is negative 9 and the low is negative 19 degrees Fahrenheit, so passengers are staying on the plane.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
