Remember that both Brazil and China require visas for many passports, including USA. It's an expensive hassle ($160 visa fee plus visa service fees, photos, etc. for USA).

Whoah. It's like getting back half of the money.

(would love to see this ticketed as not 001)

Does ` UNLIMITED FREE STOPOVERS PERMITTED.` mean one could technically stopover in every airport in the US that DL flies?

Isn't 001 stock number for AA, or do you mean 006 for DL?

Would it even be possible to construct such a fare? Like I could spend a week flying around doing nothing next May. Is there a limit on how long the stopover can be? Could it be 6 months?

No penalties for cancellation on this fare?

Works pretty well as an ex-China TPAC o/w.

This is crazy good.

So what's the most extreme routing someone can come up with for me? I'm game. I'd need a positioning flight to one of the cities in China. I'd like to do a couple days in Tokyo and Hawaii on the way back. I'm up for crazy routing.

I see no HIP exception in the fare rules so any stopover would trigger a higher fare check

Does ` UNLIMITED FREE STOPOVERS PERMITTED.` mean one could technically stopover in every airport in the US that DL flies?
Normally your stopover(s) must be at connecting airports such as a hubs along the way. You can't do a side excursion and call it a connection unless the route is legal for your fare rules.
