[FARE GONE]VX/AS PDX - SFO/LAX - IAD,BOS,JFK $128 RT 2cpm

Get the new year started off right with a quick run from PDX.

PDX-SFO-BOS-LAX-PDX quick turn for 128 RT
https://goo.gl/flights/BvNn

Or PDX-SFO-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX for 132 RT.
https://goo.gl/flights/yQmn

Also seen a few weekend routes available if you play with the dates.

These seem to booking at the one way price instead of RT price. You can book using priceline. I booked mine using Google Flights direct booking.

Credit to AS for about 6700 miles.

Oops its VX / AS not VA. My bad!!!!!

I have done some more digging and here is what i have found. This fare seems to actually be PDX-LAX connecting thru any airport which in this case is IAD,ORD,JFK,BOS.

Therefore for anyone willing to do back to back trans cons here is an even better deal.

PDX-SFO-JFK-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX which is 11,222 AS miles for only $142. Which is only 1.27cpm if all my calculations are correct.

I'm attempting to recreate this on Priceline but it's now coming up in the $300 price range, am I missing something?

A double treat!
I haven't had the chance to really read details of the merger, but would VX mileage still credit based on its own program? In which case, if you credit it to VX, you'd be getting 5x the price of the ticket, and not the mileage flown per AS?

AFAIK Elevate hasn't changed, so you're correct, you will earn 5x the base fare if crediting to VX, which would not amount to a whole lot.

I was able to get it to come up on priceline by building it on ITA then using bookwithmatrix.

That worked for me...I booked PDX-SFO-BOS-LAX-JFK-SFO-PDX over a weekend....hopefully my body will survive this, but this deal was too amazing to pass up.

Booked the same, but didn't see a sub-240 for a weekend.. care to share your dates?

Also, you only need 20k on AS and/or VX for MVP status-- this'll knock off half of that.
