NH: ORD-SGN//BKK-LAX ~ 2.2 cpm (or lower if you dare use Faregeek...)

This has been around for a while, I finally booked mine not too long ago. I didn't post it as a MR since it looked to me like a long DOJ as opposed to an MR ...

You have to work a little to find the dates that work and in some cases force an overnight in TYO for the lower price.

If you book NH metal, the lower fares book into K class, 100% PQM on UA but 25% RDM. Changing dates and departure/arrival cities will in many cases add on another $100 or so but will book into L fare for that leg (50% RDM). Both of course better than the scant few RDM you'll get on UA metal.

All I'm seeing is CAD$466 one way with taxes from both YVR & YEG for some Sept. dates.

That's about normal for Canadian cities...YYZ-SGN was C$890ish. ex-ORD same dates was C$584.

PNH seems to be particularly cheaper, probs because service commences in Sept. Can't seem to get RGN.

JFK-NRT-PNH-HND-YVR for $450. Useful for jumping off when I return to JFK from the TAP Portugal sale.
TYO stopovers also pretty easy to add

Thanks a lot for this tip!

I'm able to see this similar fare ($449) from SFO-PNH-YVR. But it is gone for other cities like BKK,SGN. Has anyone else found any other interesting cities instead of PNH?

Could you provide a link to Google Flights or something showing that last one? Thanks!

I have been trying to work on this in the other direction. Has anybody had any luck or ideas to get this sort of fares departing from Asia?

Thanks. What is the best way to play around with these dates? I'm having trouble in ITA making any sense of it.

There are some dates that "work" either inbound or outbound: I used google flights to find these (then again, I had a limited range of dates to travel anyway) - taking one of the examples used as a starting point.. You might also find this via a monthly search in ITA.

Once you have those, you can try different cities and play with the dates. Probably not the "right" way but it worked for me....
