OK. Question. The flights would be in early November and mid-late November. So far I haven't found anything wonderful. How close should I cut it before just taking something OK? I've had some great results myself on ANA using LifeMiles but nothing right now. They always fly economy and are young and flexible so I'm not as worried about connections, layovers or even arriving NRT instead of HND. My wife and I would take a(very expensive!!!) taxi but they wouldn't mind the bus from Narita.
