youre using a mistake fare + position costs as a comparison?

I think this is a fair comparison.
This could also be a mistake fare across the board. Since it is giving the me the same fare basis but different price from yesterday.

Not a mistake fare and a broad OTA sale campaign?

Anyway, this MU fare is not a mistake fare at all. It's a Chinese carrier, they're usually that cheap anyway, so tack on a sale.

Australia for ~$600 is cheap. By no means a mistake fare, but really cheap.

MQM 22800
SkyMiles: 20128 ~ 44282 depending on your status at time of flight (available from next week thru May)

Also available from ORD for $100 cheaper

I was able to price it out in Momondo, some other OTAs probably work, but Google is funky with China Eastern.

So, curious to ask to those that have done one of these. I am considering one of these to meet a status challenge. Y class versus Y+ - worth the extra spend? Or best to position to LAX and do the C fares? I understand the "you get what you pay for" concept and have done a JFK-NRT-CGK Y run in the past .....

Thank you..........

Uhm, as far as I know, MU doesn't have Y+ and in J you get smoke smell due to pilots on JFK-PVG :

I did JFK-PVG-HKG and JFK-PVG-SIN roundtrips last year in Y and they were fine (choose window or aisle, because it's 3-4-3) and in one I had the whole row for myself.
