    I figured I would post this here too in hopes of help! :)

    I'm trying to figure this one out on a DL-related trip for work but want to work in a end-of-trip visit to AMS for a weekend. The cheapest flight gotten so far is CMH-ATL-BRU-LJU-CDG-AMS-DTW-CMH at $1700 with a $510 YR. I can take some more legs on the way there. Dates are 3/24 (leave 3/23) to LJU as the work starts 3/25, leave there 4/5, leave AMS 4/7 back to the CMH.

    Thoughts?

    Check for creating two different tickets. One to Amsterdam and one to a departure city from the US. KL is running some fare sales out of IAH right now in competition with UA so that may be a good place to start.

    You called? :)

    If you're determined to accumulate some DL SM, although how many is open to question given cross-carrier ST earnings opacity of late, IST might help. Low fares showing on KL.

    But it would be cheaper and more amusing to concoct a JJ itin, OJ TATL, and position to Lat Am first. Or RGN, if you'd thought about this last year when the fares were available.
