looks like you're lucky to live in PIT! God forbid we reduce carbon footprint by cutting out one leg and just leaving from Dallas and pay $1000 more

I'd be positioning from DC, which I'd do for something this cheap!

Short flight & a ton of service from DCA/IAD/BWI.

Books into B, so it's not elite qualifying or changeable.

V fares seem to be available starting at $312 out of PIT.

If you were able to apply an SWU to this fare it'd be daylight robbery.

Respectfully disagree, a $250 RT ticket to Asia is a very good deal; you'd pay as much for a shuttle between WAS/NYC/BOS/ORD. Not all are B fares either.

It was worth flagging to the community.

Just keep in mind, Japan isn't expected to open to tourists at all this year (I live here, follow the situation closely). Unless you have a residence permit or Japanese passport you won't be admissible.

Great fare, but don't see it being usable for most people. Spring 2022 is a maybe, but Fall 2021, not a chance the way things are now, and vaccine rollout is at an absolute snails pace.

Also, the fare books as "BASIC PLUS BAG." If you are ex-DCA, then main cabin is $362, but as others have said, I don't see it opening up before the end of the year. In short, don't be an AA bag holder. YMMV.

I'm willing to book a positioning flight to do this, but out of which departure city will I get a cheap fare that will earn EQMs?
