I might book EWR-SIN-AKL :P
Still have VIE-TPE-SFO and LAX-HND-LHR open in September and October (booked at 45k and 60k), but I guess those won't be happening
Tokyoite and romans like this.

30-3-11 Fra-Sin-Hanoi for example at 65k milles
This is one of the rare occasions that SQ opens premium avaliablity to their partner.

I also noticed that A3 is getting more availablilty then Aeroplan with business class.

Interessting...

was looking at redeeming some klm Milles for mnl-tpe-ams-opo at 90k and taxes (have a voucher for that)... this could combine nicely.

I don't want to sit on too much Milles at this point...

Do you guys think they might cancel ANA F FRA-HND-LAX if I call them about changing the first leg?

change to what? LH? no changes to award tickets allowed other than a date/time change.
they wont cancel anything automatically, but they will definitely not process a change while keeping that routing. you will likely only get TPAC routes.
better to cancel and rebook (if you can get the same routing!).

Trying to redeem SOF-SFO on TK, but I'm getting the dreaded message before the search:

The selected itinerary includes multiple flights which are operated both by Olympic Air & Star Alliance carriers. To proceed online, please book each flight separately.
Any way around that without calling in?

It seems like you have to enter the url manually to search for the award. How sneaky.

trying to stretch the system to the limit (because why the hell not).

I can get Ams-bkk-tpe-lax to price out on eva for 55k milles. Under this logic, one would assume other eva destinations in america should work. Yet they dont. Whats the logic here?

already answered in post 2185 of this thread.
The exact logic coded into the website booking engine is unclear. And, unlike the Lifemiles website, UA website or other FFP websites that allow searches without needing the miles in the account, A3 M&B website does require the minimum miles needed to book an award, for the results to show up in the first place.
This results in very few people who have the miles stash AND are willing to put the time and effort to do the research (do many searches on enough route combinations to decipher how the website is coded to show/block award results).
it is still a mystery to many simply due to insufficient research by the community at large.
if a few hundred people each have an account with 100K balance of M&B miles and a few hundred hours, together with a spreadsheet to tabulate results, then it can be done!

Long time I thought this was the case, but it actually allows you to see results if you untick the calendar view.
