[FARE GONE] Ethiopian : SIN-YYZ $945 RT (2.1 CPM on A3)

- first leg is Singapore Economy (T)

- rest is ET 787 all the way via Addis, books into D

- D earns 200% on several programs including A3, thus earning a massive 44k miles!, bringing the CPM to almost 2

- comes up on Expedia.com for almost any Thursday/ Thursday combination from now on

- Ethiopian is known to downgrade to Economy but Expedia may be helpful in that case

Expedia shows as T Class Fare Basis all the way thru however ticketed into D on ET metal.

My guess is that earnings will be from T class and with hope - bum will be in D.

Great fare, thanks for sharing. On Ethiopian's website, fare basis can be CRTCC for ~$770 for BKK-YZZ, which makes it refundable.

Fare Basis: CRTCC

ANY TIME
CHANGES/CANCELLATIONS PERMITTED.
if you pick the "Cloud 9 Deluxe", which is barely more expensive.

Can you stay overnight at ADD? Any recommendations? I'm thinking of doing two of these runs to hit Asiana Gold status. Earns ~28K on Asiana.

Depending on if an earlier connection is possible/available the Hilton and visa will be free or $50 at the transit desk. I really like Addis but it is not for everyone.

It's available all the time until EOS on the airline website. Books into C the Cloud 9 Deluxe indeed. That's 200% on a bunch of programs.

I need to get to YYZ in October and positioning from CGK to BKK isn't that bad, i'm going to pull the trigger on this one before it dies. Thanks OP!

Grabbed one for a nested trip over Memorial Day and July 4th: 5/29-7/9 BKK-YYZ for $769 fully refundable booked on ET's site.

Let's hope it sticks...

BRUTAL layover. Solo flight in and out of BKK doesn't help.

You get only 100% of PQM on UA. Which programs can you get 200% (besides Ethiopean's, of course).

ET offers free transit hotel if there is no earlier connection.
