Books into I/J which earn almost the exact same: https://www.wheretocredit.com/china-eastern-airlines/j


What can 70k Eastern Miles be used for? :)

Nah, much better to credit to delta.

- 20251 flown miles
- 8100 MQD
- 34019 MQM
- 40502 minimum skymiles (no status)

Not a bad run at all, if you're planning vacations.

Nearly as cheap (~$2800) out of NYC, at least on one flight I saw using the same dates on Orbitz.

I know Google Flights is pretty bad about returning fare information from them; usually "price unavailable" for me. Suggestions on OTAs to use?

RollAnotherFatOne Jul 19, 19 8:03 pm

Priceline, Expedia tend to be good.

NYC Flyer Jul 19, 19 10:10 pm

Fare is still out there...use Matrix or Expert Flyer to find available dates. Or use a TA that will do the work for you. Some might even have access to additional discounts...

Struggling to find a method to book this and prices near this point; the absolute BEST Iíve found is like $2700 (LAX-MLE), which all things considering is good, but since I know thereís the lower fares *somewhere* Iíve come to ask for a nudge in the right direction.

Cheers!

itís hard to find what you want without dates or at least a date range?

Can't seem to price it on Expedia/Orbitz anymore, but ITA + Priceline through powertools still works easily to get the $2,247 price
