This is similar to the WBC special that NW ran at the end of 2002 and the first 10-15 days of 2003. I remember paying about 1800 for JFK-BKK in Z class. But, be carefull. There was quite an uproar last year when NW decided after the fact that the Z fare did not qualify for 150% staus miles. Most people eventually got them, but it was quite a battle. Read the fare rules carefully.
Edited to add the fare rules below. I see nothing about this not counting for 150% elite status, unless its somewhere else in the WP rules. If its not elswhere, I would get an email from NW before you book confirming it will count for 150% (about 30,000 elite status miles JFK-BKK).
I also remember last year that some people were able to route thru HNL (layover) and up the status miles to about 40,000 for this one trip. But the HNL-NRT segement was tough to book because of all the Japanese holiday New Year traffic.
