UA(USAir): LAX-FLL (via SFO) in 4-5 cpm range

Lots of flights in $265-$286 area, though overnights and USAir may be required depending on dates. I got 4.0 cpm for a $267 flight leaving Feb. 7 via SFO/PHX, returning next day via ORD/SFO.

AY (Finnair): DEL-JFK $600 ai

Dates in April are showing this segment at $600 with a nice little 22 hour layover in Helsinki. Not the best time to go, but $600 is pretty good. RT is pricing out around 1100 which is competitive with VA right now.

AY earns only .5 elite (but 100% mileage) on some classes.

Edit: the fare above seems to price out in R class which earns 1.5 elite on AA.

Looks like it is O-class. Earns 50% (RDM) only on Delta, no EQM.

MH is joining Oneworld, supposedly late this year.
Looks like it is good in Nov for a bit more, $550... (Q-class) if you want to take the gamble they have joined Oneworld by then.

50% unknown on MH

50% RDM/0% EQM on DL

25% RDM/0% EQM on AF/KL

50% RDM/0% EQM on NH

50% RDM/0% EQM on AZ

50% unknown on EY

50% unknown on 9W

While the price may be low for the route this isn't really a mileage run.

Thanks to the OP, great fare.

Any other cities? Is there a site besides expertflyer where I can look up the fare rules? (Thanks to ianmanka for providing).

Oneworld is not so generous typically on discount fare earnings, may not matter much anyway... this is the cheapest I've seen a legitimate NRT fare though for quite a while.

I saw this yesterday but the earnings didn't look that great (only 50% in their own program) so I didn't post. Or I got lazy and fell asleep. Or both. Thanks though!

Directly correlated with MH's decision to shift KUL-TPE-LAX service to KUL-NRT-LAX?
