While I agree that lack of crediting to an alliance hurts its appeal as a MR, but BCN is a GREAT place to visit!!

If you don't care about miles or booze, again not a bad TATL fare for a nice recliner ...

LHR-BKK 1712 etc - sounds good but all travel to 3 Sept only. Also available from Ireland at lower pricing due to avoiding UK supersize-taxes eg DUB-BKK 1846 euro.

My first post on this thread. I hope it isn't old news or not of interest:

PDX - YHZ in F (UP fare) for about $630 a/i on DL. US almost matches fare, but doesn't have the routings to make it decent.

Dates are limited to the next few months and include 9/3 - 9/4.

That's definitely of interest! I don't see PDX-YHZ on FC for DL (for US, yes) but I do see PDX-YUL (on DL or US) for around $630 AI.

Just booked the reverse LAX-PHL-FLL-PHL-LAX for $695ai in F (books in A class). Crediting to UA, actually have to go to FLL for business so this works out perfectly especially bc I can work using gogo on 321 flights so more productive than taking UA to MIA (btw-- UA doesnt fly to FLL).

Actually I am going one way from BKK to JFK for $1470 on MS. A bit more expensive, but I leave on January 1 right after midnight. A great way to get a lot of *A EQMs to start off the New Year. I will get to BKK either using mileage or a combination of mileage and a paid fare for part of the way, as I may want to stop over in China first.
