select Expedia to book SIN-NAN and NAN-SIN will show "I" class, class mapping error?
select Fiji airways will show economy

Did not complete booking.

AS 18+ EQM and 28+K RDM with no status.

Only the SIN > NAD maps in I class. The longhaul is in economy.

1) OP stated clearly
2) itís NAN not NAD
3) SIN-NAN is 8,307 km and NAN-LAX is 8,925 km, so itís really close to say NAN-LAX is the longer flight.

As a conservative estimate that's like 30 percent rebate in miles alone. Higher if you value miles above 1.

Booking confirmed and e-ticket issued through Expedia. I was able to make seat selections at Fiji Airways website. Roundtrip - Business (I) from SIN to NAN and Economy (R) from NAN to LAX.

Let's see if this sticks!

Same. Works to SFO as well, which is what I booked.

As a 75K, I calculated around 48,000 RDM if my math is correct. I value AS miles at $0.015, so for $720 in miles, this was a no-brainer.

Booked. Thanks for sharing!

Just wondering; is it possible to skip the onward flights to the US to fly business SIN>NAN>SIN? Or is return ticket likely to get cancelled due to no show?
-- update after -trying- to read fare rules & restrictions:
Looks like that the return flight will get cancelled: "NOSHOW RESULTS IN CANCELLATION OF THE SECTOR AND FORFEIT FARE PAID FOR THE NOSHOW SECTOR. NOSHOW-RESULTS IN CANCELLATION OF ALL FUTURE SEGMENTS FOR THE SAME ORIGIN AND DESTINATION."

Airlines dont work like that. You miss a flight, the rest get cancelled.

Great find! Any luck getting this to work on the US site? Would love to book this with the free 24 hour cancellation if possible.

Doubt it. Fare rules say only valid for purchase in South East Asia

just being 99% sure of the obvious but there's no way to book this at anywhere near this rate with the chase portal, right?
