As much as China Airlines sounds tempting, I will stay out of it. My hope is some cancellation and routing via CDG in LP

FlyingBlue does not credit nicely domestic flights as JFK-LAX would only give you 6 XPs the max for domestic Business...
Thank you for the breakdown. I'd rather keep the MQM's and keep overage for the following year

I was able to snag two JFK-DPS roundtrips. Thanks, OP, for sharing!

For those who have long layovers in ICN, consider taking the free "Transit Tour".

"Incheon International Airport provides a wide range of free transit tours, ranging from entertainment to lifestyle to business, temples, shopping, and tradition. Travelers can choose among the different tours available: 1-hour, 2-hour, 4-hour, and 5-hour tour courses. Each transit tour is led by an English-speaking tour guide and can be signed up for in advance online or upon arrival in the case of available seats. All tour participants must present their passport along with their flight ticket when signing up for the tour. All tours in the transit tour program are provided for free. However, tourist site admission fees and meals are excluded and must be paid individually."

Yep, we fully plan on doing this. Itís like getting a second mini trip for free! They also keep your carryon bag in the bus for you which makes it super convenient, tho I believe there are lockers for storage at ICN too.

For those of you worried about a refund. This is the option I have when I hit cancel. Mine was booked via Amex IAP. I was able to select all seats once given the DL confirmation #. Safe travels everyone.

Fare Rules

Hey everyone. Long time reader but I havenít really commented much (Iím envisioning the torches and pitchforks about how long itís been since Iíve postedÖ)

Now that the flights booked, how do we get ahold of the long and arduous fare rules? Would love to have something SHOWING refundable.

Only thing I have is this screenshot, but Iím wondering if itís still showing refundable because Iím within 24 hours?
