    Hi all -

    Can anyone comment on the likelihood of Business/First Saver Award availability on Star Alliance over the dates of 12/19 - 1/6, 2013 for 3 seats? Our home airport is ORD and we're looking for 3 seats on one flight anywhere warm with great beaches.

    Nothing available to Hawaii out of West Coast destinations so far.

    Historically, do you see this opening up in the next few months or so?

    I assume you tried the Wondrous Wandering Guy's Wonderful tool?

    And did you try something like PLS? I was just there and it's awesome, if pricey. United and US fly there.

    You might need to position. I had to fly US out of PHL to get to PLS, mostly because I could only find 1-2 seats from elsewhere and like you I needed 3 in F.

    Prepare yourself though, I wouldn't call it a third world airport but it can be quite shocking when it's time to depart. :)

    Water and air temps should be in the 70s that time of year. Let me know if you need some pointers... I had a thread around here as well where I got some suggestions from other people.

    We ended up booking SW award tkts for 2 and using CP for my 5 year old. We'll fly ORD to MCO and home FLL to ORD. We're using our Marriott points at Renaissance Seaworld for a comp. 2 night stay, paid for one night at $139 and then 5 nights at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood using our SPG points. Our trip is December 22 - 27th. Merry Christmas to me!
