I don't think I'll be taking this one up, because it requires overnights in both directions at DCA. On the inbound also requires a change to IAD. I used ITA Matrix. Pretty wide open for January. I'm sure someone will be able to use this.

If anyone is able to get this ticketed let me know. I can get the price on ITA, but I'm not able to ticket.

FWIW, You will lose ~1200 miles if you book flight #137 from DCA as AA will give you direct routing miles (i.e DCA-HKG instead of DCA-DFW-HKG) even though you are connecting in DFW.

aglp2k: So, if I'm flying AA LAX-ORD-PEK, I only get miles credit for LAX-PEK?

Only if it's the same flight number for both segments.

Can find on google flights which directs to AA.com. Find on ITA and then use mutli-city on google flights. You can pay an extra $20 and fly back from DCA instead of IAD.

Thanks Skunker! I will look into that.

Is anyone actually going to be doing this?
