Qantas Z Award Booked for Dec 2006 ..Thank You and 1 Quick Question

Just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone's help in this forum..without it we would not have been able to obtain the tickets we wanted. After about a month of calling AAdvantage reservations at 3am EST every morning I was able to get 2 First Class Award tickets on Qantas. We planned on flying to Australia, spending some time there, flying to Queenstown, and then flying back. We got the following intinerary by calling about 100 times in the last month!

DEC 25 QN 108 JFK - LAX (Z)
DEC 25 QN 94 LAX - MEL (Z)

JAN 20 QN 122 ZQN - SYD (U)

JAN 20 QN 3 SYD - HNL (U)
JAN 20 AA 162 HNL - LAX (Z)
JAN 20 AA 30 LAX - JFK (Z)

Hopefully this gives hope to everyone trying to redeem AA miles for an AAdvantage award.

One quick question...on the SYD - HNL leg on Qantas would you recommend sitting in business in the main cabin or the upper cabin? Anyone have any experience?

Thanks again to everyone for all their help!
