I think this is only available on cheapoair. It has been there for a while, I was contemplating to buy one for spring break (end of march), but in the end I passed. I think there was another thread on this back then and people reported it books into L class? (which earns miles).

I guess that Vancouver-based people could do carry-on luggage only, and get a cheap one-way to SFO, and then get off in Vancouver on the return. Not bad.

works for SEA too, so they could just take the Quick Shuttle down. Much better than trekking all the way to SFO.

It isn't showing as a published fare as far as I can see.

It's actually only $498 a/i from LAX via YVR. That comes out to about 15,000 miles for a fairly impressive 3.3cpm. Think I may be booking a birthday trip to Hong Kong in October.

It used to be 4 days minimum stay (and you can route through YYZ for $50 more)

I'd jump on it if I can do a thurs-Sun turn.
