NH/UA: YVR-SIN, 547USD/735CAD, 18.5k PQM, 3.0cpm

google flights shows 685 CAD but I can't seem to replicate, best I can do is 735 on UA's website. (and 735 CAD being 547USD) Best mileage routing is YVR-SFO-NRT-SIN both ways, which is 18500miles. Routing via DEN seems to be possible on select dates for an extra 1000 miles to press the cpm down even more.

for example:

https://www.google.ca/flights/#searc...=STAR_ALLIANCE

many other dates available though. You can avoid UA for all transpac routes and get the much more comfortable NH planes if you choose so.


books into K which earns 100% PQM so no issue there either way.

755CAD/567USD is what it's priced at when you use ANA's booking site, that might be what they've priced the fare at? It checks out for 735 on UA's website though.

good MR for 2018

K class fare. Best part is it books on the non-stop SF0-SIN, a 17.5 hour flight on the Dreamliner! Alt routings via NRT (on NH) & SEA. Availability through the end of schedule (for those of us who have completed our MRs for 2017!)

You have a strange definition of 'best'

Well, when the alternative is via NRT with the NH knee crusher on NrT-SIN, UA SFO-SIN might indeed be the "best" option

you must be short or always get exit row for free. i'm 6'5", never have issues with legroom (even on ac hd) and i have to avoid nh because their seats are so close together. it sucks because ana is an amazing airline. but at least there's oz which doesn't chintz on legroom.

Do you happen to have an example link for that? Lowest I can find is ~$600 USD. Or have the prices gone back up again?
