MU: YVR-SYD/MEL in Business US$2,880

China Eastern has fares between Vancouver and Melbourne/Sydney through May 2018 for ~US$2,880 (CA$3,600), often with reasonable-length layovers in Shanghai. (Auckland is a bit more expensive at $3,330.) All sectors book into I class, so the trip would earn around 37k RDM / 32k MQM / $7.5k MQD if credited to Delta. Unfortunately, MU appears to fly its A330-200s on these routes.

Example:
YVR-PVG-MEL 05/11-05/22 -- $2,875

Book by October 31.

Code:
China Eastern (MU) IPRCAC
