Could someone please post their optimised route they used in the USA to earn First (A class) status credits?
Still planning my DONE4, hopefully starting from Jakarta (CGK). Still trying to work out how to actually book a DONE4 ex CGK. I know there is a QF office in Jakarta. Not sure about AA (so maybe not be able to use the AA RTW Desk).
The plan so far is:
CGK-JFK (transit in HKG with CX)
Then depart LAX to LHR with BA or AA
I need to fill in the 6 flights in North America starting from JFK and ending in LAX.
Do most flights between the major cities have a First Class cabin?
Is AA First domestic similar to QF domestic biz in Australia?
Is it more difficult having a paper ticket? I would prefer to use all 20 flight segments if possible, instead of the 16 for an eticket.
