I booked in October 2015 - about 9 months in advance. And yes, I booked all five at once. This was over the phone, on three separate bookings due to the different itineraries.

Booked 3 tickets in Y (75k/pp) today for two months from now. I used only Aeroplan's web site to research this.

[AC] YOW-YUL
[AC] YUL-NCE (Stop)
[OU] NCE-DBV
[OU] DBV-ZAG
[OS] ZAG-VIE
[OS] VIE-HKG (Destination)
[TH] HKG-ICN (Stop)
[UA] ICN-NRT
[AC] NRT-YYZ
[AC] YYZ-YOW

$600+$30/pp

I would have done it next summer but the Aeroplan/AC split spooked me a bit. Looking forward to our second mini-RTW.

Booked!

(OZ) JFK-ICN F A380
(OZ) ICN-SYD J A380 STOP-> apparently OZ not selling the F tickets, kinda sucks but get into SYD 13 hrs earlier than alternative

(TG) SYD-BKK F 8 hour day layover
(TG) BKK-KIX F 14 hour day layover
(OZ) KIX-GMP J STOP

(NH) GMP-HND J STOP
(NH) HND-JFK F

Fees were a bit but its F. $750 single passenger. 220K AE pts

Could got BKK-KIX TG A380 but the 14 hour daytime layover was too appealing and it's "supposed" to be a 747 w new F product. Can't wait! Thanks to all who have helped!

220k. Ya I've been looking to book an F reward for a bit now and given what's going on I figured now is a good time...also I have a month off which may not happen again for a few years. It really is time to burn imo

About $250 each in taxes + $150 each in change fees.
I tried to do the o/j from CXN but it was just over the MPM.

Dues to cancellation of IST-YYZ, we're now rerouted
IST-FRA-YYZ

In addition more seat opened up HKT-BKK. All segments are now in J.

Was this specific to your itinerary or did they cancel the route? That was a very nice midpoint for me towards SEA..

Mix of aeroplan and united. Didn't require ANA although I did check to see.
I had wanted to do a F reward for a bit and things just worked out well for my holidays next Feb. I am stoked! A380F, hopefully at least 1 Thai 747 upgraded F and then ANA 777 F.

The one segment GMP-HND the flight I wanted 787 ANA wasn't visible on the one-way seg but was on a GMP-hnd-CTS one and she was able to find it.

Also ICN and GMP were apparently not sister airports. She was able to confirm that she could book those two on one ticket and not as an open jaw...but by that point I had seen the other routing with the long bangkok/osaka layovers and that was very appealing.

Sweet!
When is your travel dates? Trying to see how long out to book these.

I want to book a similar trip to go from YYZ to SYD. Don't really need F, J is fine, but if F is available would do a few extra legs for that. Able to find J from YYZ to SYD...but having a hard time returning from SYD back to YYZ in J or higher. So your route gives some hints on what is available.

You can try SYD-LAX-YYZ. I had a different route booked (SYD-BKK-TPE-YYZ) but then found this one come available 3 weeks prior to travel (mid May) - so switched immediately. The new UA Polaris J product is pretty good and well AC J is as good as can be expected.

Aeroplan site is providing limited routes. Looking at ZRH-YUL on June 15 and no direct flight is available on AP J reward but United shows it and ANA shows it as available. Other routes and dates have similar situations. Have not called the center yet. I need to change a routing to an earlier date that I have booked before. The overall return trip is as follows:

CPH-EWR-YUL-YOW stop
YOW-YYZ-YYC

Need to change to an earlier date with YOW stopover. Flexible dates but would prefer eliminating USA transfer. Checking individual segments but AP has limited options whereas United sites shows alternative on many segments. If AP does not show availability, does it mean no go?
