BA/AA: First class GOT-HNL for 2000, up to 990TP

With a bit of playing around I managed to get this up to 990 TP on BAEC GOT-LHR-LAX-HNL, return leg HNL-LAX-SFO-LHR-GOT. Mix of F and J, dates in May.

Can book with Google Flights, but using ITA/Book With Matrix also got the price down to KR20,788/~1900.

Some of you who are smarter than me could probably do even better!

Nice find! Very interested in this particularly if you can get the price down even more or the TPs up even more!

There have been a few routing options proposed last week and this week on the BA tier points run forum and the BA premium fare deals. Seems like this is a DIF fare, and if you find availability you can route it via JFK or HEL, but it's not easy. Great fare overall, valid on both AA and BA metal for the LHR-LAX leg.

Leaving HNL at 7am to then arrive in NYC at 1am to leave again the following evening is not my idea of a good time, even in F! Great fare though.

If you multi-leg out the JFK-LAX and LAX-JFK legs and they allow you to route via SFO, DFW, PHL, CLT, MIA rather than direct it would be more TPs but you will probably lose your A321 3-class fully-flat, direct aisle access seat on the transcon
