Is it realistic for an AA award for one-way J class on Cathay Pacific DPS>NYC before mid-July?

    Hi Lucky – love your blog and read it everyday! I’m going to Bali in July and am trying to book my one-way biz class award home from DPS – NYC in mid-August. I’m hoping to use AA miles to redeem for J class on Cathay Pacific, but I know it’s peak travel season. On the plus side, I have flexibility on travel dates and it’s just me travelling. Do you think it’s realistic to hope that a seat will open up to book between now and then? Is it too risky to hope that a last-minute seat will appear? I’ve been searching BA’s site for a while now and don’t even see any economy seats available for mid-August now.

    On a separate note, I read your post on last-minute first class award space in which you mentioned you would have a separate post on last-minute business class award availability. I don’t see one though – did you end up posting about it?

    Thanks in advance!

    @ Emily — Thanks! Haven’t gotten to that post yet, but if you’re a single traveler with flexible dates you should absolutely be able to find something.
