CA: NYC-TYO in Business $2,028+

Air China business fares between New York and Tokyo from late August through December 31 are available for $2,028 and up. You can fly out of JFK into either NRT or HND, and out of EWR into HND. You'll pay an extra $70 to fly into HND and have shorter layovers in PEK. The fare code for all segments is Z. There's no minimum stay.

Example in Google Flights.

Wow, some great prices. I looked at leaving EWR on a Thursday around noon arriving HND Friday at 9:30pm and home Saturday leaving 7:40pm and landing in EWR Sunday 10:40am (about 1/2 day in the city). A great MR if you need some Star Alliance miles.

Wife should just hit 61k miles on UA this year but she's not willing to do this for Platinum. I would push if she was closer to 1K though

Actually, it appears to have a 3-day minimum stay. No advance purchase requirement, however.

Stopovers are allowed "at the gateway" -- presumably the Chinese transit city; $80 for the first and $160 for each subsequent stopover.

UA flyers take note -- these fares must be ticketed on CA stock, so you cannot earn PQDs; you'll earn 100% PQMs and 125% RDMs.

The only other CA origin that appears to be on sale is HNL ($1500 + tax: ~$1800).

Very true! What I was trying to highlight was how, given the flight schedules, same-day turnarounds are possible. You can leave New York on a Friday afternoon and return by Monday morning.
