AA: HKG-SEA $266 (1.3-1.6 cpm)

Useful for those based in HK.
Can choose to transfer in DFW (more miles) or LAX (shorter).

Not all dates are available but I see some from now until July. Use Google Flights to find available dates.

Example:

Oh for the days of distance based crediting!

More dates are available at $396, which via DFW both ways is 2.0 cpm, not bad at all itself. Even days available at $643 RT via DFW both ways are a very solid 3.2 cpm! 4900 Avios and 60 TP for the RT if one dares to credit to BA .

Oh and welcome to FT and fantastic first post .

Talking

Thank you, OP!!!!

Been waiting for a deal like this, so booked it with my ThankYou points, paid a small cash portion to make sure it was a bulk fares (and therefore posts based on distance), and will get to use my expiring SWU's from last year.

I'll glue the whole thing together with miles. Could not be happier! You're a lifesaver, OP!

Does this small cash payment trick work all the time? I made a few bookings last year with mostly points and $1-$2 cash and I was booked into the standard revenue fare buckets (N and Q).

Was thinking of using AS miles to get to Japan on JAL, might as well make that a stopover and position to HK for this. Thanks op!

Agreed, I think it's gone. Tried to wrestle with Thank You Points and positioning, it didn't work out.

Thanks for the post, OP. It was a good warm-up and an opportunity to hone my skills for 2017!
