Which OTA or routing?

If this is how Travelsky rules are decoded into major GDSs then it might be possible to book via CTRIP - but because the server is in China I always have problems to make it work relatively fast.

The MU flight is scheduled only 60 minutes apart. I don't think that's enough time to clear immigration and security and re-check in again.

This is awesome I booked a rt cebu to jfk June 4th till August 24th. 1350rt.

I typically go memorial and labor day if I can anyway.

best part is I have the 50 percent refund on amex platinum still with member rewards points. They recently changed it to 35 percent. Entire flight will end up costing 67500 amex points and ill get 30k plus sky pesos back along with the mqm and mqd likely assuring me diamond in 2019.

now if I can just find a cheap fare to get there memorial day and leave labor day hopefully to burn global upgrades.

There is no best Skyteam airlines FFP, but there are two least bad FFPs.
One is Delta SkyMiles, another one is Air France/KLM Flying Blue.

very good deal ex clark basis ^

ex manila comes out to $1,600 to sfo and lax on business class

deal is still very much available across a wide date range thru to 2018.

as someone mentioned awful flight time and long layover for ex clark.

ex manila flight time slightly better and slightly shorter layover than ex clark.

This post has some information on a same day turn in CRK, which seems possible.

Anyone have more updated information on this?

So since I am not based in France, I can get Flying Blue Gold in one trip?

To get the DL credit do you just give the ticket number to them to redeem the Skypesos?

Thanks for the help, newbie to mileage runs.
