So i'm trying to plan my honeymoon for next June. The whole itinerary will be NYC > LAX > PPT > LAX > NYC Now, I knew the Air Tahiti Nui flights might be hard, so I waited 330 days out, stayed up till 2AM, and called to put my flights on hold. The first issue, is that ATN only releases one business class seat on the flight that we need. Ok, not a problem, we've traveled the world in First/Business, what's the big deal of a 9 hr flight in coach, considering we'll be on the beach for the next 10 days in Moorea and Bora Bora. So I put the LAX-PPT flight on hold. The issue I run into though, is there is NO economy award availability from any of the NY area airports to LAX on June 10th. I tried every possible routing I could think of (DCA, IAD, PHL, CLE, ORD, etc.) but can't get this to work. Worst case scenario is I just buy the $300 round trip tickets for me and the wife, but that seems like a complete wast of $600, considering the JFK>LAX flights should cost $0 to add onto our itinerary. Sucks, but does that sound right that AA doesn't open up a singe economy seat on any of their 11 daily non-stop flights from the NY area to LAX?!?! Any thoughts, advice, input, suggestions would be welcomed.
