- books into K which earns just 25%-50% but great price for AU summer!

It may only earn 25-50% with Altitude... but it will earn 100% with United for the international legs.

With United I calculate this out to 18,532 miles, or 3.3 cpm.

Where did you get 100% for United from? I see 50% for international legs and 25% within Canada.

I think he's referring to PQM while you're referring to RDM.

I see over 21k PQMs if using the NYC-YVR flights instead of transiting in YYZ.

How are ACs 787s in back? I've only ever flown AC in C. Very tempted to jump on one or two of these, I enjoy Australia a heck of a lot more than Singapore which the only other super long haul great deal for PQMs right now.

But prices seemed to go up with that routing quite a bit (+70). But direct turnaround is possible. Always great to get 28 hours flight time with just 1,5 hours on the ground

Prices look a bit higher ex-EWR vs ex-LGA ($625 vs $550), but for the extra PQMs and convenience of having an only one-stop itinerary, I definitely agree it's worth it.

I like it; although I haven't done ULHs in these. I have done TCONs and TATLs in 787, and they are really comfortable in Y.

I'm with you but best price I can find is $660 which is still $0.0311. ONly thing is not have premium economy might be painful...Also if I recall with AC you can't pick your seat unless you pay extra. I may be wrong.
