LX: MIA-NRT one way; $662

Booking into a K-fare; visible on google flights for direct booking at swiss.com. Dates between now and the end of June for early-week departures. Checked baggage allowance of 2 x 23kg/50lbs

I did the unthinkable and spoke with a friend working for LH. He's scratching his head and believes that this is due to steering for the unusually empty ZRH-NRT flights.

In this case, likely "steering customer traffic to fill this particular route"
