AS: JFK-SFO now $70 o/w

$1 more than the last sale.

Both ways: 2/22,23, 3/1,2,5,8,9
JFK-SFO only: 2/26

These are Saver (X) fares, not eligible for elite upgrades, etc.

On 3/5 a day trip JFK-SFO-JFK is not possible

EWR has similar availability at this price, though is fewer miles than JFK.

I noticed this as well. There are definitely some fare restrictions in the rules because each individual flight is totally available. Will check out the rules.

This was possible 2 days ago. If you purchase 'up' and you have AS status, they'll move you to a seat closer to the front with more legroom; and if you're really lucky, you'll get the much coveted upgrade to first class. My R/T fare booked several weeks ago was $192. I purchased as two 1 ways in case I had schedule issues. That extra $25 each way more than paid for itself with a meal and a drink. I did an immediate turn to fly the redeye home.

Miles posted the next day. Just shy of 8000 miles for a 5100 ish mile R/T.

Fewer s correct! 21 fewer, 42 return. 2579 vs 2558.

Trivia: SFO is closer to HNL than JFK yet LAX is closer to JFK than HNL.

Yes, South of SFO the California coast travels a long ways East. In fact, Reno Nevada is further West than Los Angeles. Something to consider when you are trying to maximize flight distances.

Reno is especially farther when you have to connect in Seattle

Maybe I am spoiled (I probably am). This is more than I would want to pay. Though I may do it, I might need to go to SFO for a day next month.

This is from February (or March for the slightly higher fare). This has sadly been dead for several weeks now.
