Wow great find. Seems like the most efficient one I have seen thus far.

Thanks! I just switched to this itinerary as well. 11k EQM, 22k RDM. I don't think I can make myself do two of these though.

I managed to select seats on the app. Now I need to change the FF to AS MP.

Looks like you can do slightly better:

https://goo.gl/flights/dZ8y

PDX-SFO-FLL-JFK-LAX, LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX. $146/12,228 miles = 1.19 cpm

Don't think you can do this one all in one go, as fare is only valid TUE/WED/SAT and there's not enough time to fly PDX-SFO-FLL-JFK-LAX on Tuesday and still depart LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX on Wednesday.

Booked a PDX-SFO-BOS-LAX-JFK-LAS-SFO-PDX. Still toying to see if I can get some of the more fun routings like JFK-PSP or LGA/DCA-DAL, but seems like its limited to those four East Coast airports.

In for one. $136 for an October weekend.
Now, do I fly Frontier to PDX to save my cpm or AS to save my sanity...?

I really should book one of these but positioning to PDX is annoying. I could do it from SFO then no show the last SF-PDX segment.

I was hoping Saudia would show that but i guess VX isnt supported. Next woudl be to try to find the same itin on ITA and check there.

I'm going to try selecting seats via the app to see if that makes a difference but I have no status on VX and for some reason even though AS owns virgin now they cant seem to arrange reciprocal benefits that go both ways. Feels like VX is taking over AS vs the other way around.

*EDIT* The App worked I was Finally able to select seats. The rest of my statement still stands.

Im quite sure they won't. This fate has been around for awhile now. I've seen it for the past few months but never heard of anybody crediting VX and we were trying to go for at least the weekend. The turn around a we could only ever find were 2-3 hours later. A true MR.
with all the crazy routing it has drawn now I wouldn't be surprised if it got pulled.

It's N class unless you paid much more than $150. Search in ITA (and use bookwithmatrix to buy on PL) to see fare class before booking.

Obviously, the play here with crediting to AS Mileage Plan (which is now available online) is the reward!
