Ua: Yyz-pek $1707 & yyz-pvg $1720

YYZ seems to be the hot spot for biz fares to Asia of late.

UA: YYZ-PEK $1707

UA: YYZ-PVG $1720

Still going strong:

AA Biz: YYZ-PEK/PVG US$1722/$1876

Best I can find on AA to PEK is $2536. PVG available for $2068. Certainly don't see any fares at $1722.

Nice, thanks for sharing.

China J fares has been so cheap with all the Chinese airlines flying to NA. $2300-$2500 in J on 5 different airlines now...

I wish there was a way to add a few more miles to bring in at least 20k for the R/T with COS bonus

You could upgrade it to first -- on routes where first is offered -- with a $600 copay plus 30K miles in each direction. The copay has to be paid up front and is refunded after the flight if the upgrade doesn't clear.

Transoceanic P fares cannot be upgraded with certificates.

$1700 (US) is a good price. You get about 30K miles. But in economy, you can get tickets for as little as $505 (US) for about 14K miles, which is an even better deal in terms of CPM.

Care to share some of those creative routes? The best I managed was about 31K.

That's a LOT of flying, especially as one of the posts states better CPM in coach

But yes, YVR has had a lot of good deals to Asia lately - no surprise as every time I'm at YVR there are plethora of Asian planes there @:-)

Yes, of course Y fare quoted gets you under $0.04 per mile and P fare under $0.05 per mile which IMHO is an amazing deal. In addition it is a better deal as you save time in long run as you will not need to do time consuming mileage runs at the end of the year to get to your status if you are short.
