China Eastern: CRK/CEB to SFO/LAX/ORD, JFK $1,134 RT

- very good China Eastern offers from the Phillipines to many US destinations

- not every OTA has the flights but it is bookable

- books into I and J (short haul)

$6000 MQD. Interesting run for offsetting the new 250k waiver.

Thank you for sharing. Great fare yet horrible flight timing with long connection time.

I booked CRK-LAX for $1175. Only 2 hour layover in PVG on the outbound, and I forced a 7 day stopover in PVG on the way back. I class on MU is 150% MQM and 30% MQD for DL. Just what I needed to make Diamond next year. Thanks OP!

Do not forget HNL and ... Moscow (which is a longer available than this current US promo). However, i see nothing good for other Europe.

How did you force PVG stopover without breaking fare? Which OTA?

One free stopover is permitted in each direction, but
Code:
STOPOVERS

   8 STOPOVERS PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT - 4 IN EACH
   DIRECTION
     LIMITED TO 2 FREE AND 6 AT CNY 1000 EACH.
     1 FREE IN EACH DIRECTION
     3 IN EACH DIRECTION AT CNY 1000 EACH.
HIP Check applies.
Which means you have to pay higher price if the fare between the stopover point and the destination / origin is more expensive.
Code:
HIP/MILEAGE EXCEPTIONS

   NO HIP OR MILEAGE EXCEPTIONS APPLY.

Like this:
That's an interesting one as most airlines do not apply HIP checks for routing fares (as opposed to MPM fares where routing is not specified), they don't even need to put anything into fare rules in this respect.
I saw already that HIP surcharges triggered for MU routing fares due to stopovers, however, in my case these were triggered only if a segment within China was added, while a stopover in Shanghai without domestic segments in China did not trigger HIP surcharges.

Would be interested to know how/ where airlines specify the rule in respect of HIP checks application.

Could be dependent on GDSs used as well.

Cool. Thank you for pointing this out. Interesting possibility now.

Flights start 18-Oct-17 but I need 16-Oct-17.

Also need to point out that this works with SFO, LAX, JFK ($200 more), and ORD ($300 more)

You can create a stopover in PVG without incurring additional charge. I wonder if MU is competing and matching with PR.

Can anyone confirm that if you put miles into Delta Skypesos you'll earn around 27000 miles (bonus miles)? 175% on I and 200% on J.
