Oh? Others have that with Expedia also? Just pulled trigger on a quick turn JFK-PVG-SIN MR in Econ for $399(but at T and B, which both earn 100% and 150% respectively MQM) course have to wait for ticketed. Maybe it won't actual ticket?

Seems I did get a MU Ticket number. But can't seem to use their site to confirm it, but can use it to select (Purchase) seats. Guess will try to call and reserve seat. Anyone know do they actually recognize Delta Platinum and Diamond SkyMiles members?

Yes MU should recognize your DL status, as well as SkyTeam E+

China Eastern Seat Selection

From that thread it looks like you can send an email to the NYC office for a seat request.

$575 I saw a good price. Don't get me wrong but it's not $375

It's Sydney pal. Go find another under $600 flight to Sydney. I dare you.

It's way more miles. Although it's not B-fare the PVG-SYD legs.

It's only 2500 miles more to SYD than to SIN. Keep in mind that an increase for $200 for 5000 miles will lower your CPM a bit.

But SYD as a destination is ofc, very nice in the winter

Nov last year LAX to AKL for $202 I believe. $200 to LAX for NYC = $402. Like I said $600 isn't bad but it's not $375 either.
