UA: LAX - BKK 3.3 cpm - Multiple dates in Oct, Nov, Dec (Mon-Tue departure)

Looks like there are some good fares to be found to BKK these months. Found several examples from LAX for $550ish through NRT. UA metal with NH or NH metal. 16676 miles comes around to about 3.3 cpm. Haven't seen a lot of good deals from the West Coast lately.

Here's an example:

I've seen some trips where you fly on Dreamliners all segments. You'd have an 8 hour layover in NRT on the way back. Would be a pretty entertaining trip I think.

Yeah, missed out on the SAN - SIN MR a few months ago. Haven't found other decent ones from here.

The learning curve on how to find that trick is rather steep. Many in the know will tell you that return of investment WRT time spent learning isn't worth it @:-)
