Very overloaded post so I'll try to break it down by region. For the *A routes, you can route on LH/LX for the long-haul, which is awesome

SFO/OAK/SMF/SJC - CPH/ARN

BA: ($4800 ex-SMF, $5300 ex-SFO/SJC)

AF: ($4800 ex-OAK, $5300 ex-SFO/SJC)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...a=SKYTEAM;eo=c

*A: ($5300)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear..._ALLIANCE;eo=c

SEA/PDX-CPH

*A ($4600)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear..._ALLIANCE;eo=c

OW ($4600 -$5400)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...=ONEWORLD;eo=c

ORD-DUB/ARN/CPH

*A: ($4500 for DUB, $5300 for ARN/CPH)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear..._ALLIANCE;eo=e

OW: ($4500 for DUB, $5300 for ARN/CPH)
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...=ONEWORLD;eo=e

BOS - DUB/CPH/ARN

OW$4600 for CPH/ARN, $5600 for DUB)

Seems to require 7 day stay, and seems to be good until end of schedule. Starting Sept 20th. Couldn't find anything ex-LAX.

Obviously not "cheap" fares, but some good deals especially ex-West Coast, where we rarely see discounts. The F fares seem to be only a few hundred dollars higher than the J fares for these routes.

Also, the SkyTeam/One World fares should be eligible for discounts via Amex's new International Airline Program. For example, SFO-CDG-CPH on AF F (La Premiere) is $5350 but via IAP I think it was either $49xx or $50xx, so you save a few hundred dollars. AF only operates the A380 ex-SFO so no new seat, but that's a separate matter

If someone could find the fare rules, that'd be great, thanks.

Those aren't US destinations, those are US origins.

not that cheap IMHO. $4k and below is a good deal in F. $5k? Not MR territory.

I don't follow the oneworld carriers much, but you can get roundtrip US (specifically SFO) to Europe for ~$4,500 in Lufthansa and SWISS first class somewhere around 75% of the year as long as you can do a reasonable minimum stay. This is just normal pricing.

What destinations do you fly to to get that pricing? I have been looking and have never seen that on LH/LX.

Most of what I book for clients (to Europe) is either to London or Scandinavia (usually ARN). Last year's SFO-ARN UA/LH/LX fare published about the same time was actually $200 cheaper than the current one.
