BA/OW LAX/PHX/SFO-BOM $2618 RT in J through Dec 2018

Quite a few mid $2500 deals from the east coast but it isn't too often we see West Coast to India for this cheap in J.

I just booked a mileage run instead of my usual JNB run in PE.

Crediting to AA this nets:
EQMs: 29,859
EQDs: $4,976
RDMS as EXP: 48,769


Basically it is costing me $800 more than JNB but this nets -3,000 EQMs, but +$500 EQDs, AND ITS ALL IN J!!!!! (I will try to upgrade to First with Avios)

This price uses the $200 AARP discount and the Chase BA 10% off discount.

Time to dig through GF and see if there's anything ex-YVR to save me a positioning flight.

For those who have never been to India, it's worth a trip. The Intercon in Mumbai is quite affordable and I really loved the week I spent there.

It books into I.

The regular price is about $3k.

AARP discount is $200; Chase is 10% off the remaining total.

You have to go to the aarp page. Click the BA link. Then book normally and simply enter CARDOFFERU as a promotional code. You also have to have the Chase BA card.

Do you have an AARP membership and BA Chase card?
