Nil volentibus arduum.

We should put that one in the Wiki.

You misunderstood the italian words
Sorry, but I am Italian and I have to say that Epicura is 100% right, "not all that glitters is gold" is the meaning of it, there's no other meaning associated with it. I am a newbie in fuel dumping, but I am an expert in my native language ;)
In any case you can clarify the meaning of it, if it will help us to find the dump :-)

Leave as soon as 2 weeks from now. OKINAWA is tropical.
Stay as short as 2 nights.

With the proper VIP card you can eat and drink yourself silly along the way. Sushi/ Sashimi/ Smoked Salmon/Vodka/Champagne/ /Curry Beef/Sake/Kirin.



Trying but not getting it.
I see that OW and ST alliances allow those itinerary and both tickets allow "side itinerary" (so 3x should be allowed)
Should I concentrate my searched OW or ST alliance ticket?

Thanx

And I'm not going to mingle in your hate/love relationship with WWE (and I'm very carefull in my description, I could have been much naughtier :p ). I love you both for your great dumps and inspirational posts :-:.

I think it is called bruised Ego and sour grapes, when WWE is somewhat explicit with a super great deal. Cogito Ergo Sum.

I'm pretty sure it's the OW tickets, based on the BF, but I can't figure out the 3x... or 1x

I'm pretty sure also, that's an OW airline, but can't find the strike. Knowing if it's an 1x or 3x would be helpful...

Reread WWE's post and reread your post. Then you will see the flaw in your approach.

Well I found something verrrry quickly after some help from a friendly member over PM. But don't think it is flyable.. If someone wants to trade my unflyable for something flyable or throwaway-able... :D

Looks like UA just dropped their YQ, it's now $178.20! :P

And to the member who was PMing about SFO-SIN, since I ran out of PMs for the day, looks like mine are right between yours. Thanks for the extra info! Oh I meant $558 ai, the $680 came from doing a stopover in Sushi which I forgot about.

I hope this doesn't mean anything.... unless it does. Especially the Smoked Salmon/Vodka/Champagne part. 2x with Russia / France? :P

You mean I have the wrong airline/alliance or do you mean I could use an 1x as well as an 3x?

If someone is willing to give more specific help per PM, I'd send my (meager) findings.

Oh boy, do you underestimate the nuances in this thread. WWE is not just posting this in order to show off his savoir-vivre ;).

Why do you think I shared that my routing was slightly different?

Btw, I'm at 160 EUR now.
