Talking AA/CX/JL: LAX-MNL-SIN-LAX $427 and up

Hi all,

Was just browsing through Google flights for some Thanksgiving Week travel for fam and I (and quite jealous of the LAX-SIN UA $384 fare...),
came across this open-jaw, LAX-HKG-MNL (open) SIN-HKG-LAX AA-CX-CX-AA respectively. Long layover, but since I love HKG, we will head out into the city for some dim sum, and some CX Pier visit afterward.

Example date: 11/22-11/28 (my actual travel dates).
Booking engine: AA.com (I have tried Expedia, Cheapoair, Priceline...cannot priced it beside AA)
EQM (according to MileCalc): 18293
Paid price: $430
Good old days would have been 2.4 cents per mile lol. Hopefully I leave enough details for someone to duplicate. For some reasons, Google flights doesn't pull up the $427 price anymore but it's still available through AA so inventories might be going down.
P.S. $427 was AA-CX (AA codeshare)-CX (AA codeshare)- AA, $430 was AA-CX-CX-AA so you'll earn more EQD with $3 more. Air Asia one way MNL-SIN is $80 so we'll get to spend 5 days in 2 countries.

Nice find. Thanks for the heads-up.

It also works for other parts of SEA. I tried LAX-SIN/BKK-LAX for end-March/early-April return.

I tried pricing out stopovers but that pushed the price up to $700.

As mentioned by OP, only available on AA multi-city search. Zilch on GF.
