So far it seems that way. I guess i didn't even try that. may mix better with a LAX-BOS flight to get me home vs burning a 25K award on AS to PDX

I'm going to call this one, the Centurion Lounge MR run. I've only ever been to the DFW Centurion Lounge.

So for me to look for this IAD-LAX (don't care where I have to connect) do I have to do multi city on google air? or can I just do IAD-LAX and it will provide me with multi city fares that would qualify for this fare (assuming that it is a valid fare departing IAD)

The VX site is acting flaky. Just realized i booked one to depart the same day i get off my award returning from Japan DO. It gives an error when attempting to cancel. Technically i can change my award to arrive in PDX instead but its locked in a schedule change. I cant call on VX or the AS award either at the point. I guess i can always skip my last 2 AS award legs and buy a separate ticket DFW-PDX.So wish these were bookable on the AS site so i can take advantage of MVPG change fee waivers.

I've just been plugging in multi city.

Heres a single RT for $71 LAX-IAD-SFO-PDX. Just to make sure you realize this does not allow you to stay in DCin case that is the issue. its purely a connection on the east coast

Booked the PDX-SFO-JFK-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX run (albeit at the extremely inflated price of $240) for the weekend of Feb 10 if anyone else is planning to endure that. Thanks, OP!

Also, you only need 20k on AS and/or VX for MVP status-- this'll knock off half of that.
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...-SFOPDX0VX1816

If you are having trouble finding a weekend, you may want to look further out....I found a weekend that works for me in October....$162 booked on Priceline...leave on a Friday night and home by Sunday...amazing price! I could have done JFK twice in a row, but I threw BOS in there for a change of scenery and a few more EQMs. My hope is that by the time October rolls around, AS elites will have a least a few more benefits on VX, like preferred seating and upgrades to Main Cabin Select (*fingers crossed*). As with almost all my mileage runs, my awesome mileage running wife is going with me so we'll both earn enough EQMs for over half the of the 20K required for MVP requalification. Booking just 4 of these would get you MVPG

I had trouble using the VX website to get seat assignments....it would sorta lock-up on me so I downloaded the ap and that worked fine. Most of the seats behind the exit rows were all available for selection (no charge).

Last nite I bought one a VX ticket - had to use Priceline - since AS & VX websites are not designed to actually create revenue - just to aggravate and annoy!!

Once I had my "ticket" I was able to use VX website to add my AS FF#. Bad news - VX charges extra for most seats - thought I slipped down to Allegiant! Finally found seat 11E - no charge for a middle seat crammed in no where land!

I attempted to select seat 11E - first 3 flights worked - then the page froze - had to "cancel" to escape the VX maze!! Tried numerous times - never was successful.

Finally had a "chat" with VX - "David" reassured me that even though AS bought VX - VX still thinks AS flyers are unentitled (MVPG maybe Gold - but to VX we are tarnished!!) !

VX website is one of the worst - reminds me of my "daze" in the "Frontier" world !!

How is this a Centurion Lounge MR? No Centurion Lounge exists in LAX, JFK, IAD, or BOS and the one in SFO is in a different terminal.

Seeing an east coast connection via FLL on certain days, for those who want to make a brief stop at a Florida airport.

Here's an example, with an hour in FLL for $136.

Booked 3/1-3/2 PDX-SFO-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX via Google (I love that that's a thing now) for $131.60! This is fantastic, and dramatically cheaper than any day trip MRs I was considering.
