MU/Sky: NYC - South East Asia under $500 r/t ai

Multiple locations and dates in offer for travel between now and December 25th. Awesome fares are back!

Examples (roundtrip prices)
JFK-PVG-DPS $471
JFK-PVG(-CTU)-HKT $480
JFK-PVG-SIN $487
JFK-PVG-KMG-CMB $498

These are amazing fares if you don't have problems traveling long-haul on economy, as their fare basis is T-B (T-B-B for those with 2 layovers). T earns 100% MQM and 25% SkyMiles, B earns 150% MQM and 100% SkyMiles (all distance based, including 20% and 5% also distance based for MQD)

Remember, China Eastern earns 100% MQM for Delta, and they give you a free hotel night in mainland China when you have a 12+ hs layover in Shanghai. Bookable via ITA Matrix.

Sample earnings rates on longest run:
- JFK-PVG-KMG-CMB, $498
JFK-PVG, fare T, 7392 mi, 7392 MQM, 1848 RDM, 370 MQD
PVG-KMG, fare B, 1222 mi, 1833 MQM, 1222 RDM, 244 MQD
KMG-CMB, fare B, 1960 mi, 2940 MQM, 1960 RDM, 392 MQD
times two (roundtrip)
Totals:
24,330 MQM (2cpm)
10,060 SkyMiles (14084 for Silver, 16096 for Gold, 18108 for Platinum, 22132 for Diamond)
$2,012 MQD



From fare rules:
PERMITTED 01OCT 18 THROUGH 12DEC 18 OR 25DEC 18 THROUGH 30APR 19 ON THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL SECTOR.
IF THE FARE COMPONENT INCLUDES TRAVEL WITHIN CHINA ON ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING MU FLIGHTS 6001 THROUGH 6199 MU FLIGHTS 6500 THROUGH 6599 MU FLIGHTS 6700 THROUGH 6799 UNLIMITED STOPOVERS PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT. 6 STOPOVERS PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT - 3 IN EACH DIRECTION AT CNY 500 EACH.

This is fairly standard for MU. 2 years ago they had even lower fares - $380 JFK-NRT. If only their schedule worked a bit better - most flights end up having an overnight connection at PVG.
