AA/JAL - Many US East Coast Cities - PVG/HAN - Premium Economy $1015

Seeing lots of good premium economy fares from US-Shanghai or Hanoi on AA/JAL

Great for a AA EQM run as PE earns 150%. Terrible EQD/RDM tho.

Seeing these cities to PVG
Dates: October 2018 - Feb 2019
Florida - All Cities
DFW (Non-Stop)
NYC
Chicago
Boston

For Hanoi seeing fares on JAL metal but only bookable via AA. These tickets claim to be "flexible" but the fare rules seem to state otherwise. Might be an error.
Dates: Limited August 2018 - November 2018
NYC
ORD

This is the AA premium economy product. Its essentially domestic F. There are physical leg rests in row 1, but the monitor is stowed in the arm rest in those seats as well.
You may see cheaper prices on DL but remember DL's premium economy is fake Y+ except on the A350.

I cant get any of these to price out on another carrier to fix the EQD problem. If anyone else can please let me know.

Very good if you can force into special fare code P* via AA vacations. 2x EQM and 30% EQD plus cabin bonus of 50%.

DFW - PVG could yield 29k+ EQM 4.4k+ EQD 39k+ miles for EXP

If you do an open jaw instead of a stop over it works

I did not have any luck with PVG... by quick turnaround guessing this might be a mileage run? If you looking for a mileage run DM me I found lots of other options that get to P*on same dates, some cheaper too...

Hmm, in what way? NYC-TYO-HAN/TYO-NYC for example? Also doesn't work. I'm trying to see if I can go to both Japan and Vietnam in winter...

Ah, sorry I thought you were looking at PVG. Not sure if that will work on HAN.

Great fare, to anyone looking to book this use caution as the fare books with AA flight numbers. That means you'll only earn ~$1,000 EQD if you book a standard fare. Instead, try booking through AA Vacations or a Credit Card portal to grab a Special Fare. After booking when you check your itinerary on AA (dot) com you shouldn't see a price listed. If you see a price you did not get a Special Fare, cancel w/in 24 hours and try again. OP thanks for posting! Been hoping to try out JAL PE for some time now.

Is there any sort of punishment for failing to use the hotel? Hostel obviously not my preferred choice but worth the pennies to get the EQD/EQM. I mean I guess I could check in and leave at worst, right?
