There are very few cheap tier point acquisition opportunities around the February half term (w/b 16/2. If anyone knows of anything I will buy you a large drink...
I am going to retire from teaching at the end of the year which seems to be the best solution ! mind you I did book LUX-HNL 6 months out so have somewhere to go at half term. Last year I booked ARN-DOH-SIN at short notice for the Feb half term so there is still hope

And you can route TXL-HEL-LHR-PHL and back with pretty decent timings for roughly the same price, or do TXL-HEL-LHR-JFK-PHL return for the same price, one overnight and 600 TP total.

Struggling to get this routing. Which dates did you find it on? Best I can find is TXL-HEL-ORD-PHL/PHL-BOS-JFK-LHR-TXL return on a mix of Finnair/American/BA metal at 480TP. Also, how did you get to 600TP?

40+80+140+40 x 2 = 600 TP.

Think this has been pulled already. Best I can see this run for in July is 1600.

I've decided to go to the Hong Kong 7s this year, then go into China for a 2 week trip. Best I've found in J is 3rd April - AMS/DOH/HK, returning 21 April for EUR 2776. I'm pretty flexible where I fly out of, any better suggestions?

You can use the Qatar sale to get a much better deal than that: ARN-HKG (via DOH) is 1517 for those dates.

Odd. Think it's running into fare code challenges. Some seem to price through properly, others can't seem to find the correct fare when you go through to Qatar. Whole month of April is open at c.1525. Probably best to experiment with dates if there's flexibility. Think ARN is still the best origin for HKG in this sale, unless anyone else has seen different?
