should i wait or get award seats for transcontinental LAX to JFK

should i wait or get award seats for transcontinental LAX to JFK

    Hi,

    I have a stash of krisflyer miles which i want to use for united LAX to EWR in July. But availability has not opened up yet. i think its only 20k one day for business as well.
    However I also have qantas points and they have AA business LAX to JFK for 50k Qantas points.
    Just can’t justify using 50k qantas points. What do people think? Should I wait until availability pops up?

    [USER=529]@Stephen[/USER]–depends on if you need to be in NYC in July… If you must get there, take the guaranteed booking. If not, then play it by ear.

    Can’t say I know much about the QF program, but would it’s be possible to book AA and than cancel if United open up? Or is the cancellation fees high?

    Have you looked into Jetblue Mint class award space on Krisflyer?

    These days you can even credit miles for flights on Jetblue to Krisflyer.

    Thanks. its about 5k per person points. You can accumulate krisflyer miles but you can’t redeem jetblue with krisflyer miles i don’t think.
    I have to go there so i guess it was a no brainer. Qantas recently reduced award rates so it wasn’t as bad as before. Keep krisflyer for singapore i guess!

    You are quite right about Jetblue. Sorry, not sure what I was thinking when I wrote that post. My memory must be slipping. :oops::oops::oops:
