How I Booked My Shver...
« on: May 15, 2011, 05:07:06 PM »
My FIL wants to go from MCI to TLV in business class using 115K CO miles.
Departing between 06/12-06/14, returning between 07/04 and 07/07.
Preferably no overnights in a hotel.

I came up with a couple options for him both ways, though the return is either brutal or exhilarating depending on whether you are a normal person or a DD'er.

I'll post the options I came up with later, let's see what you can find first...or if you can find all the options I found!
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.

A.  They do, via UA, as I'm sure you know.
B.  My solutions are actually RT tickets using CO miles.

Nobody up for the challenge?

Im sure im sounding like a novice here (because in this area, i really am) but. are those returns really only 57,500?
I mean 5 legs is really allowed? I thought you can only have 1 stopover and 1 open jaw.

It definitely is :)
Always like the alternate option.

BTW, on the outbound MCI-IAD-FRA-TLV on the 14th will take two hours off the trip.
