Two Roundtrips HKG-NRT-JFK on business.

For the above itinerary:

HKG-NRT J = 3818 FOP, 2279 Miles

NRT-JFK J = 8822 FOP, 8422 Miles

JFK-NRT J = 8822 FOP, 8422 Miles

NRT-HKG J = 3818 FOP, 2279 Miles

One roundtrip yields 25280 FOPs and 42804 miles (due to double miles campaign for 2010)

Ticket costs HKD36000 tax+surcharges inclusive (~USD 4635) per trip using fare DHKPA (D Class).

So two of these round trips for USD9270 would yield a total of 50560 FOPs (JGC & Sapphire qualification) and 85608 miles.
