    @ larry -- In practice Delta is tough to beat, given their partnership with Virgin Australia. Yes, you could book three one-ways out of one account, and one one-way out of another account. You can indeed do an open jaw. The further in advance you can book, the better, as those tend to be popular awards, especially during peak season.
