Earliest we can leave EZE is 9pm. Only EZE-USA flights will arrive on time.

EWR, JFK, IAH, MIA, ATL, etc.
Depends how you define "on time".

There's a Copa flight arriving NYC before 1pm.

No availability
LATAM too? That's the story with all other options aside from IAH?

No availability anywhere, but worst case UA's standard awards are somewhat tolerable. AA's, not so much.

I don't see any such flight departing after 9pm.

That's why - I wasn't searching for Friday.

Of course the con here is that it's Copa :P

So if a 767 won't work, a 737 is the solution!

All we need to round out the experience is a ride in compact Hyundai to/from the airports.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Con: You're in a 737 for 13 hours.
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.

Yep. Although both of those legs might get the 737 MAX 9 with the lie flat biz seats. No idea on the roll-out timeline though.

KRK-FRA-EWR LH 747 F, 5 hours connection - perfect for FCT, the only way to book more than 2 weeks out is with 85K LH + $270
Or
KRK-OSL-JFK Norwegian 787 Premium for $500.

I never flew F (although I do have BA F booked).
If I take the Norwegian I save myself the 85K LH for $230 more and still fly pretty comfortably for a day flight, and although I don't know when, hopefully I'll be able to fly LH F in the future, or do I take the LH because I now have the opportunity and וואס איז זיכער איז זיכער?

I've seen F with Life miles more than 2 weeks out. Never tried booking though, so no comments if it's phantom or not.

Not showing for me.

Anyone have any thoughts/opinion?
