I've been tempted to start/finish at LAX for one of the routes, but if I could include the Vegas leg both ways it would obviously be preferable.I need 525 points for Gold so its a bit of a puzzle. Thanks

also when giving the matrix too many options, it fails. add "alliance oneworld" in the blank field.

I’m going off this. It does require a leap of faith that someone in the government has gotten this from official Bulgarian channels and hasn’t just made it up.

Still new in the wonderful world of TP's... Would this qualify for a TP run? It is a AY companion fare from Sweden. I think this is 520 TP for GBP 861.

Fare rules;

I'd say that's a fine/working example.

Since the member is London based and to avoid an excessive layover, I'd fine tune that by moving the inbound HEL-LHR to AY1335. Also I recommend doing the final booking with one of the later LAX-LAS flights, just to permit a comfortable overnight layover with time to sleep. Unfortunately not much to be done about the inbound, since there's not an early enough LAS-LAX.

Any downsides to booking this type of trip directly with AA?

AA is way more restricted with their covid rebooking policies.
