Good deals.

First week of Oct is holiday in China, they are not mistake fares.

PEK-YVR or PEK-SEA > $1000

It's difficult to travel around China during first week of Oct.

I can assure you there is a mistake aspect to this pricing. Regarding seasonality, it's not that restrictive:

Code:
PERMITTED 01AUG 14 THROUGH 31DEC 14 ON THE OUTBOUND
  TRANSPACIFIC SECTOR.

I see 525 as base + 130 in taxes for 650 USD AI price on Vayama. ITA quotes 832 CAD.

Couldn't find an easy way to credit Hainan flight miles to out side of their own program.

What booking class and fare basis code is this? Is the transpacific segment only in Hainan? (that's likely a dealbreaker for most of us.)

EDIT: this looks like an accidental case of YQ reduction from fare construction. Hainan books into fare class Q, probably does not earn with any major FFP

AA: SEA-ORD-PEK for $798

AA: SEA-ORD-PEK for $798 --- 16,550 miles


I'm noticing, as reported on TFD, that AA has entered the mix and has some reasonably good fares SEA-ORD-PEK in Sept-Oct-Nov that are pegged at $798 to $847. They do require a 3-day stay, however, so don't really fit the full MR criteria. The cpm is decent, at about 4.8 and many dates look open for SWU upgrades.

Creative routings through LAX, DFW, and even PHL or BOS are possible, but don't appear to lower the cpm, as these itineraries are priced slightly higher.

Still a good possibility for what has been lean times for deals from AA.
