Excellent fare.

Even found short stay Hong Kong and Japan possible in case if anyone interested in short trip and few more miles.

it's under 24 hours in HKG, so not a stopover. Just time your flight into HKG and then flight out such that you have nearly 24hours. BTW, looks like routing via DFW would give an extra 2K miles in the MPM, so that would give you extra miles to play around with to utilize the somewhat generous transfer allotment.

Exactly, and HKG+NRT are perfect for that idea since CX flight schedule is great, excellent First lounge for OWE in both HKG and NRT, and the cities are convenient (HND could be even better). Also year end time to use up my remaining SWUs for J->F on AAs 777 departing from HKG (If anyone manage to fly HKG-DFW).

I played with this for awhile and couldn't force anything through DFW although there seems to be nothing in the fare rules tt should disallow that. Wonder if it's a married segment issue or simply tt OTAs are unable to rate.

Can you force HKG/NRT on the return leg? I'm trying and having no luck.
