Yvr-dfw-hkg $2500 aa j

I saw a thread on Vancouver to Hong Kong but for those collecting AS points this can be pretty good for the price as it is almost 30K base miles so 3 trips would make you a top tier AS elite. Also AA's J product is pretty good.

There are good AAVacation options for YVR-HKG too. Same dates you picked above (7/4-7/18) will route you YVR-LAX-NRT-LAX-HKG in I for under $2800, including a hotel that whole time. Cut down by a week (7/4-7/11) under $2600. For AA flyers it'll count as a special fare and earn 33,430 EQM, 3343 EQD and 16,715 RDM.

EDIT: as mentioned below I totally biffed the route there. Clearly it's YVR-LAX-NRT-HKG on the way out and HKG-LAX-YVR on the way back. Sorry if anybody actually thought that was supposed to be right...somehow I doubt anybody did. In any case I do believe the mileage calculations were correct.

YVR-LAX-NRT-LAX-HKG return would be 38,485 miles. Great deal for $2800. Where do I sign up?

Hahaha, ok sorry, nice typo on my part. Obviously I meant YVR-LAX-NRT-HKG-LAX-YVR. That is, you only go through NRT on the way out. Counter-intuitively the stop in Tokyo only adds a couple miles.
