Entirely dependent upon your dates of travel.

Around Christmas, AA has three nonstops HNL-DFW, two of which are 78X metal.

It always helps to post dates on these forums.

Don't overlook the fact that on most dates, 2 out of 3 of AA's HNL-DFW nonstops are on the 788 or 789. UA's nonstop is apparently always operated by their 772.

You would almost certainly find...

The key word here seems to be "effective," as in "effective annual fee." And given THAT, your original proposition does make sense. Hell, I get close to $550 in food and bev value per year at...

I find this hard to believe (and I've used IAP successfully for years now).

Assuming "several years" = 3 or more, then 3 x $550 = $1650 in savings, from ONE IAP purchase?!?

On what, a $12 or...

Only rollaboard and garment bag. No pers item on these flights.

And I'm really only complaining -- whether you see fit to believe me or not -- that all this was entirely unexpected and a change of...

This -- alas -- is accurate, and correct. But I've been flying with a garment bag for years and never had it treated even as a "personal item," indeed often boarding with carryon + pers item +...

At least I bought it in Prague, at a price closer to what you would pay in Germany, but I never intended that I would check it (for the exact reasons you cite) -- until this jaunt on AA with their...

Fare is one-way.
To do a turn, of any length, you'll just have to find and book a flight back.
You can of course search for a RT on your intended dates of travel, but scarce availability seems to...

Ticket (apparently) issued, but no charge posted to my cr card yet -- ???

I put a MAN-AKL RT on 72-hour hold last week, then forgot to go back to pay for it until 72 hrs and 45 mins later.

The website seemed to show that my itin was still "reserved" and could be...

I have one of these on 72-hr hold with BA, SJC-LHR-MXP return, 5/9-5/14, for $894. The EQM/EQD earnings might be a tad less than cited above, as the LHR-MXP sectors book into K. Will most likely earn...

EQD earning is still much better per actual $$ spent on current QR business fares ARN/OSL-MEL/CBR/AKL, even at "only" 20% -- on an arguably better product on most routes.
