The Wyndham site hasn't allowed me to book rooms anywhere in a while and I always have to call. At first I thought it was because I also use the eBates link, but that doesn't seem to be the problem....

I don't know if we need to slice the bologna so thin, but I'm seeing a coach award HKG-LAX priced from 35k to 85k. Or, a CLT-NYC varied from 5.5k to 30k. The "new" award booking page didn't give me...

No, I never shill. Just pointing out a difference I saw. As tom911 points out, the Airbus seat is the one to look for, and I never had trouble with the controls.

On the CX award availability, my...

I fell in line and matched to AS MVPG75k. Much better earning and only 50k for a oneway CX J award with good availability. And, the first time I took an AS flight (SFO-MCO nonstop vs AA's one-stop,)...

Well, not exactly. The fact that there is no breakfast (CS DOESN'T offer) is fine, as most HIX breakfasts are not really healthy nor tasty. I usually stay in the CS's in Jacksonville, FL and make our...

I just ticketed a CX J award JFK-HKG-BKK mid-June. There were a number of options as well as PE. 50k AS is a great deal, especially since AA wants 67.5k and they never seem to have anything until CX...

Actually, looks like it's 23,562 BIS so 25,918 EQM's with the 10% COS bonus and 55,371 RDM's per RT for MVPG75k (125% bonus.) Most of the dates at $2190 are E so not UPG'able with Asia Miles. A...

I would agree with your math, and I'm in a similar situation. International flights mainly since I live in BKK, so MVPG should be fine. I'm about 30k short of requalifying MVP Gold 75k, so maybe...

This has been endlessly debated on FT for decades. While you can buy miles for apx 2 cents, that is only one factor. I actually have to go someplace, so the miles are not the only factor. For...

Not a VOA. The sticker I received from the TWOV desk at PEK (near Gate E11,) is entitled a "Temporary Entry Permit." It has the area and dates allowed. You must have an overnight stay. On my return...

That's funny as the agent at DEN offered to send it through to BKK (final dest on the separate ticket,) and explained that it is done all the time, but that it takes a little more effort.

Actually, I've had very good luck checking bags thru on separate tickets. It can be done, just takes a little more knowledge and effort on the check-in agent's part, so many don't want to bother.

It takes about 7 to 10 business days. I matched Wyndham DIA from MR PLT, then Caesars TRDIA from W DIA. Too bad M Life won't match anymore, as it would be a nice shortcut to Hyatt Globalist.

I just did AA126 HKG-DFW in an O fare (UPG'd to J with a SWU,) and while the earnings on AS were only 4556 RDM's, it was better than AA's EXP rate, at 3300 RDM's. The...
