Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I had read some of the threads already but will do so again with more detail.

Full (Y and B) coach fares = 17,778 points (also for Business / First)
Is that the "booking code"? Then I'm in trouble...because logging into the held booking it says "Booking Code : N".

Gonna try to figure out if that's what was meant by "call Web Services, upfare to a fare than offers 1.0 point per mile if you need to do so, and then complete the purchase on aa.com" ??

And need to find out what this Web Services is...

And sometimes one can find discounted "I" Business fares for not much more than some coach fares.
That sounds great! Wonder how I can do that...

So much to learn...

Oh SCRATCH. Was so busy today I forgot to call about starting the challenge and they're closed now. Can I book my flight before starting the challenge?

P.S. Like I said, will re-read the links again, so hopefully I can answer my own questions shortly.
