Can add a connection through MIA on return to get <4.0cpm.

Cizake, ex. 10/23-10/29

AA.com also shows a routing through MIA LAX outbound fwiw for $663.

Wish those 10% off coupons were still floating around. Would make this price even cheaper.

WAS Oct 3, 13 9:13 am

Excellent fare. Thank you.
Trying to find routing via Tokyo or Hong Kong on the way back. That way you can avoid getting a visa.

I thought you can have a 72 hour non-visa in Shanghai and Beijing now

Only if you're NOT flying back to the same country. So US->PRC->US won't qualify for 72 TWOV (transit without visa).

US->PRC->Japan->US does qualify, for example.

Exactly. Beijing, Shanghai and a few other cities are in the program. But you have to continue your journey to a 3rd country. Hong Kong/Macao also qualify as a 3rd country, btw.

I didn't realize there was this option. Excellent information to have - thank you.

Best thing to do is pair with an Avios booking to HKG or TYO, unless you can find a cheap paid fare to either place. You can have 72hrs on either side.

It is a 5 day minimum stay.

P.s. Certain days you can route out of BWI via MIA, LAX and return LAX, MCO, JFK, to squeeze the miles.
