Yes, I just read the documentation closely, and it is $3000 for business class r/t. Still, the cheapest I had found before this was $4500, so it's still significantly better. I'll live without the ff miles for $1500.
I tried Korean Air, and their prices were also about $4500+. Have I missed something? Are there special deals and secrets I need to know? That's why I posted here, so smarter people could help me out. Thanks!
