Ac: Yyz-bkk c$2888 rt

Works out to US$2255.

Sample route:
https://www.google.ca/flights/#searc...NYYZ1AC62;sc=b

Can also connect through NRT, HND, HKG, but be careful that the segment to BKK books in biz class and not economy!

I booked Asiana for the ICN-BKK-ICN segments but using AC code shares so I could apply a discount code. (KE also available on A380 but not as a code share.) My net price was C$2528.

(Note: I've edited the title twice to put it in upper case letters. Keeps reverting to lower case! Apparently, it's beyond my skill level. )

Nice deal Can also route through YVR for around the same price. CX flights seem to be available too.

PERMITTED 15DEC 17 THROUGH 10JAN 18 OR 15FEB 18 THROUGH 25FEB 18 OR 22JUN 18 THROUGH 22AUG 18 ON THE OUTBOUND TRANSPACIFIC SECTOR.

THE FARE COMPONENT MUST INCLUDE TRAVEL VIA EACH TRANSPACIFIC SECTOR ON ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING AC FLIGHTS 001 THROUGH 2199.

Nice Find

Has anyone found a way to book the ANA segments in business? I can find routings with AC to Asia and then with Asiana, Air China or Cathay in business but I can't find any on ANA. Japan to BKK is a 6 or 7 hour flight. I also want to collect miles though United and Asiana and Air China only gives 100% PQM in business.

On another note when I was poking around I did see fares of YYZ-YUL-PEK-BKK return on Air China (YYZ-YUL on AC) for around $2500 CAD.

Able to from YVR. Maybe the timing of the connection in NRT doesn't work from YYZ?

Paid $3200 for my recent YYC-YVR-NRT-BKK-ICN-YVR-YYC trip, mix of AC, NH, and OZ. Had the option for a $2800 on CA (YYC-YVR-china-BKK-etc) but reading the reviews about CA didn't sit well with me.

Wish this $2900ish offer is in Apr/May. Thinking of grabbing one for Aug/Sept but will look at other options for Apr/May

Looks like I'm able to route through SFO. Choice of two flights to NRT: NH on 777 or UA on 777. Which one would you pick if prices are same? I have yet to experience Polaris in J on UA.

Fare rules say 1 free stop-over each way; but when I try to book with stop-overs (
one way in Seoul, the other way in Shanghai) the rate goes up to over $5000.
I've been fighting with the rate desk for 24 hours, any suggestions?
Maybe I should just book connections on line at the correct price, then call in to
change the conections to stop-overs?

I didn't try but maybe it doesn't work for PVG?

Something like this maybe. I highlighted the hefty YQ. I don't think we can avoid the AC surcharge, but perhaps we change MU with a different carrier.

NRT-BKK UA 7922 (operated by NH 807)

If I'm calling into AC to book a roundtrip, any difference/consequences if I feed them either UA 7922 or NH 807?
