Hi,
I have been looking at flying syd - sin - sfo but just looked at the flight duration and it is a killer compared to flying direct syd - sfo.

I have points banked in amex plat edge, are there any other options? I have only ever booked with asiamiles and krisflyer so apart from the QF/CX and SQ flight options, I have no idea what else is available.

Please halp!

booking a year out.

Thanks!

Not sure what your goal is?

Did you want to find 4xJ redemptions?
You said you have points? In what FF program?

Alternatives are
SYD-LAX-SFO on QF/AA
Or UA direct to SFO
Or VA/DL
Or HA, JQ, QF via HNL then domestic to SFO
Or NZ via AKL

Aim is to get to US soil even if it's an island then hop to SFO

thanks for the reply.

My points are in amex so I am flexible.
Goal is to get 4 x J saver tickets on a shorter travel time compared to syd - sin - sfo

I know it is virtually impossible to get 4 x J savers on QF, and going SYD-HK-SFO is just as long as going syd - sin - SFO.

So with the others, UA and VA and maybe AKL, how likely is it to get 4 x J savers ? do they release 4 tickets per flight?

Very difficult to get 4 per flight. If not impossible. Chances increase if you are prepared to fly 2 on one day and 2 another or 2 in one cabin and 2 in anither

There's also air canadia. Or Japan Airlines or ANA via Tokyo (both will have connection straight in to SFO). Tokyo to SFO is between 8.5 and 9 hours flying time, so not too much monger than a transpac + connection LAX-SFO.

so given what everyone is saying, looks like syd-sin-sfo with SQ is the go? i was hoping for VA or UA or NZ to offer 4 J savers on the same flight... not looking like anyone is going to say that they have booked 4 Js flying direct..
