Thanks. What points did you use? I assume using multi-city. I cannot get pricing with straight KUL-YYZ-KUL.

KUL-ICN-LAX is on Korean Air business class

LAX-YVR is on Alaska domestic first class

One needs to select first class (same fare) to ensure the LAX-YVR is booked in F. If you choose business class, then LAX-YVR will be booked in Y. No fare difference between the two.

One can route through TPE on China Airlines

D class booking

Lots of availability

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE AIRLINE
Great deal! Thanks!

Btw, can I get DL miles on the CI codeshare?

I dont believe CI is a skyteam member, hence I would say no. You can get DL miles if you fly KE.

You can choose via ICN on KE, just need to play with the dates. I am able to get KE via LAX (ton of D availability, just play with the dates).

Great find! Unfortunately it does not seem to allow the same kind of fun creative routings DL's last error fare did

This fare has been around for quite some time. Asiana use to match with a AC codeshare.

You mean the J fare, not this D fare?

I doubt anyone will match an error fare. I wish.

I'm guessing this doesn't work in reverse, right? That's why I don't see this deal.

Seems only work point to point. I have no luck using multi-city to create <24 hours transits.
