DO NOT CALL THE AIRLINE

Availability

From: FCO/MXP, BCN/MAD, OTP, MLA, IST (although I couldn't get the OTP origin to ticket)

Via: SIN/PEK

To: SEA/PDX/SLC/LAX/ATL/EWR/JFK/SJU (probably others)

Routing: AUH between Europe and Asia. NRT (and optionally HNL) between Asia and North America.

Interesting options: Some city combinations will book into T fares on AZ for a few dollars more, which will earn 100% on Flying Blue. AS has confirmed booking date will not be taken into consideration for mileage credit. DL V fare will earn 50% for 2015 travel. AS metal may be available on HNL-North America segments (if you choose to route via HNL).

Booking Engines: Orbitz, Priceline and others. Depending on the flights, Google Flights and Hipmunk are not showing these fares.

And remember, DO NOT CALL THE AIRLINE

I think I booked the same flight to SIN. Could you check what your reservation shows?
Before payment there were only 2 flights shown: MXP - SIN and SIN - JFK.

After the payment I see:
17.06.15 11:40 AM MXP - SIN (through AUH)
17.06.15 11:55 AM MXP - AUH
24.06.15 06:55 AM SIN - JFK (through NRT)

What can I do now? I made screenshots before booking and it didn't look like that. Odd thing is that those 2 MXP - AUH flights have the same number.

Yeah, my email looks similar with two outbound segments out of MXP. Try viewing your reservations on either DL or AZ using provided confirmation numbers. Mine are correct on the airline websites. It's probably just an anomaly on the email. Once ticketed (if it tickets) it will probably clear up.

If you can't find your home airport, add your return SIN - XXX and then a third leg, XXX - LAX, it shaved mine down to $344 from $500+

$504 ai FCO > SIN > SFO

AND it is all on SkyTeam. Perhaps it isn't as nice as $388, but appears to be a lot of questions about earning miles on the first leg.

You can start from most airports in Italy. I found PMO and FLR after this was originally outed in the Good Deal Economy fares thread (CAI - SIN - LAX)...

Doesn't seem to work too well for next July, when I could probably more easily make use of it. But I haven't had time to fiddle around with looking at departures from other Italian cities yet, just Milan Malpensa. Will report back if anything interesting crops up.

Just booked VCE-SIN-JFK over Memorial Day for 368/person.

That 14 hours from NRT to JFK in economy is going to suck though.
