CX: Ord/JFK/EWR-MLE $1770-1900; mixed PE and J

Found this surfing google flights for a fare over July 4 holiday.

https://goo.gl/flights/D1ia

ORD-HKG PE (R) o/n in HKG
HKG-MLE (I)

return is a short layover in HKG

Avail starting late May - early August

Orbitz $1774; Cathay shows $2800+

23,000+ AA EQM, if I calculated correctly

Seems to be in the heart of the rainy season. Anyone know how bad the rainy season is, other than wet....?

first original post...hope this is right!

Thanks for posting, nice price for very long haul Premium Economy (I was hoping it was a steal in Business Class!) 380 BA Tier Points too, more than halfway to Silver status.

Good first post. FWIW - In the future it is helpful to put the cabin in the subject. In this case PE. But good job.

Rainy season - been there many times. Overall, Expect some rain most days, but also, long periods of sun. In short, hit or miss any given day.

I have been to SE Asia many times in July/Aug. Some trips, for the entire trip, you would not know it was rainy season - sunshine and very little rain. Other trips, roads flooded and heavy storms every day.

So it's premium economy ORD-HKG, business HKG-MLE. Seems like a deal!

Works out of JFK too for $1756.

Over $5k EQD and 35.3k EQM if doing the JFK-YVR-HKG-MLE routing.

How many miles would that be ?

Has anyone been able to book this at that price?

Indeed, looks like a great deal.

Pretty sure it's 27.5k each way from ORD, as the HKG-MLE flights should already be in J. Haven't booked myself but FWIW this has been around for a while - I had it on hold in January for ~$1715/person but didn't pull the trigger. So I assume if it's been around this long it's real

So i'm a bit confused, on the CX website they state that the fare codes as "N" which looks like Economy (I saw "E" previously too but that seems to have disappeared). If these do code as N then there is 0% earning on AA and no upgrade available, right? Also no upgrade potential if that's a mistake and they should code as E?

Orbitz appears to show R/I.

Yeah I put this up on 12/11/16. R for the PE legs I for the Biz stuff.

I booked that day. Ticket is still good to go. Even made it through a 10 minute schedule change.

I booked this in November and everything still looks good for my July flight.
It booked into (R) & (I) at the CX website.

I think it's refundable too.

Long Train Runnin and puchalskir - were you able to confirm an upgrade to J? (or not interested / haven't tried)
