    Of course I should have known you'd beat me to this. I just blogged it thinking I had stumbled onto something original :)

    Assume it was successful and certainly that's good news for Biz class awards. Quick question: with a dummy booking, how soon do you typically hold it before canceling?

    This will come in handy for 10K coach awards Berlin-Vienna on Niki. Now if I could just get the U.S.-Germany fares to drop a bit for the winter.

    AA.com gave us the standard 5 day hold, just like what AA reservations on the phone give...

    Nice to be able to book HEL -- Aisa on Finnair. :) If one is already on the European side of the pond, it's likely a fast way to get to their Aisan destinations (straight over the Arctic vs. around the continent) and HEL is good airport to connect thru.
