I can't believe I just did this.
I'm petrified for some reason.

Yep... would be great if I was there. Oh well.

GRU on KE via LAX worked a couple of hours ago, so did JNB on TG. CCS showed up on AZ for some 350 USD 3 hrs ago, but BT-store didn't confirm in booking process ("price change"). Fiji was available on 484 USD on KE.

Can anyone see it work to GRU, BOG, YYZ ? Without transiting USA and without using KE ?

Whatever routes work for me I seem to be stuck with KE in F and J.

My RGN-BKK-ICN-YVR return just ticketed

Once the junta figures out that they can devalue their currency by several 100x and get an influx of tourists on the backs of complacent airlines, they might do this more often!

Anyone booked a good RT on *A?
I can't use Vayama to book the RT; none of the fares are pricing aggressively.

But it appears fully cancellable (minus $28 Vayama fee and $100 Vayama cancel fee) I really doubt anyone will let you do an immediate turn in Myanmar. Its not exactly a transit hub.
Oops! I hope I can go in with two different passports!

Vayama and their HKG based sister, cheaptickets.hk are all showing these fares but I don't get offered a choice of paper ticket. How does one elicit a paper ticket ?

We're flying to RGN on a UA award ticket with a 5 day stopover in BKK. 60 k miles in J plus 250 for F home is well worth it.

But, then we risk all this tickets will be cancelled as the airline will not accept the ticketing?

So maybe the other booking sites were better?

And as many people asked, how to get paper tickets? ;-)

Does it make sense to book this return, cancel my award seats on return (get the miles back for one way if this is possible). I Know time is short. advice?
Never done anything like this before.
THe awards-tickets you can cancel till last moment not? I would not cancel them till you are sure you can fly or till when you need to cancel it.

Nice. Terrible for the locals though.
