are we talking about the same AC J here? i find it to be the BEST couples seating. ahem. :] it's the best way to legitimately get some private time without looking like you are looking for some private time. :]

Tried to do ITM-NRT-IAD-YYZ but not a valid routing.

228.46 + 33.9

..
Do you think Aeroplan would let me originate from YVR but with a simplier routing.. eg YVR-FRA-SIN-x/NRT-ZRH-x/FRA-YVR ?

Funny under Aeroplan website "Manage Rewards", the flights are out of sequence and some flights are missing.

Flight 1: YYZ - YUL -ZRH - FRA ; ORD -(1 month later) YYZ ; FRA -(back to original itin.) SIN
Funny - I booked almost exactly the same route (stops are different, but destination is same - KIX). ITM-NRT-IAD-YUL _is_ a valid routing, don't let them tell you otherwise (and I doubt YYZ is different from YUL...... unless it counts as a backtracking? but that would be silly) - I was able to book it in NH (no F available for now). You wouldn't be travelling in April of 2012, would you? Would be pretty weird if we ended up in KIX at the same time, hehe.

LH sells tickets to SIN via FRA so I would imagine that's a valid routing.... I mean the YVR-FRA-SIN part. but then you also want NRT-ZRH-YVR that I don't know.

Maybe to YYZ is not. It doesn't really matter to me that much. I wanted IAD only because it's 1 extra hour of NH experience(you know maximizing) and I already did NRT-ORD last time. Availability wasn't bad as I am flexible.

I am travelling in February.

I think someone from FT might be booked on the LH flight FRA - SIN. Who else would book a single F seat months in advance? Lol . I was the 1st one to book it, originally a 747, then got switched to A380 and 1A was taken. Availability says F6 and there are only 8 F seats.

wow - you won the route lottery? nice,congrats with a bit of luck they might switch up NRT-ORD to the "inspiration" config, so you'll REALLY win out. I'm trying to grab NRT-(JFK/FRA), but the opinion on the NH forums is that those get released some 10 days in advance, rather than a year. we'll see...

NRT-ORD and NRT-IAD availability was quite good for Jan/Feb when I booked.

In fact for February it's still virtually wide open (5 of the 8 days I picked have 2 F seats available) up till Feb 24. With ANA flights the ANA tool is really convenient because you can check next 7 days availability by a single click. You just keep clicking and no F available after Feb 24.

I'm trying to find NRT to anywhere in North America on NH F 300+ days out, and can't find anything! I was banking on NRT-ORD or NRT-IAD in F!

I am wondering whether the "long term" NH F is not available, but "medium" term is. As beep88 said, nothing into March/April is available, but maybe they will open up some inventory once we are closer to the dates?

NH opens F inventory close to departure. This is similar to NZ, which opens J generally within a month of departure.

Use the ANA tool to search for ANA flights only (not the Star Alliance button), and you can click through 330+ days easily. I did this last night and F is available within the next 2 weeks, then nothing except from Mid-January to Feb 24.

Ohh... but I do not think that is valid, is it? I don't think that means availability for Aeroplan (or other *A) point redemption.

Yeah, I saw this as well using the KVS Tool... frustrating though because I need a flight in mid/late April... I don't want to "risk" not getting F on such a long flight...

Hmm. Can anyone confirm that availability gathered by clicking "check ANA flights" is a) different from the star alliance one, and b) is actually bookable by Aeroplan and not reserved for ANA redemptions or something?
