The total would yield a total of 51868 FOPs at approximately USD5500 all inclusive.

But I will feel very sorry for your friends' backside and bottom with so much longhaul Y.
I think 2K and 2N HKG-NRT-JFK will get you 57,756 FOPs (with JALCard promotion)

HKG-NRT in K: 1,823 * 70% * 1.5 * 120% (JALCard) + 400 = 2,697 FOPs
HKG-NRT in N: 1,823 * 50% * 1.5 * 120% (JALCard) = 1,641 FOPs
NRT-JFK in K: 6,737 * 70% * 120% (JALCard) + 400 = 6.095 FOPs
NRT-JFK in N: 6,737 * 50% * 120% (JALCard) = 4,042 FOPs

Total: 57,756 FOPs

I think it's possible to do 1 HKG-NRT-JFK roundtrip in K and 3 in N
Total FOPs: 51,610
Total Miles: 75,340
Total Cost: USD 5,200
