Ba wtp+ yvr-cpt-ord ~ $1289usd

Great find over Memorial Day Weekend. Almost $700 cheaper by starting in YVR so simply cashed in 25K miles for an ORD-YVR positioning flight on UA.

21,997 miles in total. Books into "T" on BA so EQD's calculated at 20% of miles flown. EQM's calculated as 150% of miles flown. So roughly 33K EQM's and 4,400 EQD's. Fare was discounted $130 by using my AARP membership and booking through their BA portal.

You got the AARP discount to apply on a flight leaving from Canada?

How does one use the AARP discount flying out of Vancouver? I don't see it in the drop down.

When I logged into the AARP site I used the link to tha BA Portal that showed the it was the discounted BA site in the upper right corner. When I compared the regular BA.com pricing with what I booked through the portal it comes up with a $130 discount.

As far as booking this, I used the Multi-City search and changed the departure country to Canada and Vancouver was then available in the drop down pick-list. I used YVR-JNB then JNB-CPT, CPT-JNB and finally JNB-ORD. Came out several hundred dollars lower than booking a straight ORD-CPT roundtrip.
