Airfare watchdog just sent me an email.

Layovers look good, not sure where to credit as I don't know anything about *A.

Great fare looks bookable for 2 weeks from now!

Looks interesting, however, the only fares that I'm seeing involve 13 or 23hr layovers at YVR or YYZ. Unless you're hoping for a daytrip to YYZ/YVR, that's not such a good routing. Also, the fares I'm seeing are in K, so you'd only get 50% RDM if you credit to UA/SQ/AC. I'll pass.

I'm seeing 1+ and 3 hour layovers @ US$409.

I saw these same exact layovers before I posted this deal.

I don't know anything about *A fare crediting but I wanted to post this deal quickly, as I have never seen PHX-HKG this cheap.

This is a completely asinine argument, considering that if you flew United, you'd get far, far less than 50% of miles flown. Heck, even if you were 1K, you'd get about 4,400 miles, or a whopping 29% of miles flown.

By the way - you're new here... mileage runs are primarily flown for the EQM, not the RDM. RDM you can simply buy for 1 or 2 cents each, so flying them is a ridiculous way of accruing miles.

And yes - AC in "K" credits to United at 100% EQM.
