A nice US-originating fare. Depending on date, may require (offer?) long layover in TYO and/or an airport change. Travel MON-THU on transpacific sector.

This is X class, earning AA flyers approx $4800 EQDs and 38,000 EQMs ex JFK. Same fare from LAX as well.

NB: I class only earns 20% EQD on AA code, and a paltry 14% on JL code. X class on JL earns 25%.

Also, the min stay on the JL fare is only 12 hours.

If you do want to book via AAVacations, definitely consider calling a travel agent, who can get you the same price with a very low upfront deposit and balance due just 45 days before departure.

Damnit I booked this the other day but at 3280. One of the tyo--bkk legs is from nrt and therefore in angled flat. I called Orbitz to change and costs 400$ .
to cancel is 800$ . Ahhh!
Any suggestions?

Not immediately helpful, but suggest you contact a travel agent before committing to an OTA booking next time...

​​​​​​AAVacations packages booked through your travel agent instead of direct are extended this perk. The price is the same as booking direct. I have booked business class packages on AAVacations for FT clients with as little as a $200 deposit (with bulk air, of course). Balance due 45 days prior to departure.

GF shows it as low as $2877 starting in May.

And, the JL X fare is the one for AS MP earning as it's 125% EQM's and 350% RDM's (for MVP Gold 75K members.)

Yes I am seeing the lower numbers but when I try to book, the OTAs reprice up.

I'm seeing it available on JL's website and bookable. If you're having trouble, check with NYC Flyer as he's a TA.

Can someone post the full fare rules?

I click on the OPs link. It shows the expected price in GF. I click on CheapoAirs OTA link and the price jumps up to $6,619 USD.
