KE: YYZ to KUL $2768

Found this routing while looking for a good end of year run to maintain Diamond on Delta. Four flights in Apex suites -- two on the 787-9, two on the top deck of a 747. This far exceeds the experience you'll get on China Eastern for the same money.

The YYZ-ICN-KUL-ICN-YYZ routing will earn 28,412 MQM and 7,578 MQD, in addition to the nearly 40k redeemable miles you'd earn if you're already Diamond on Delta.

Timing of the flights are good too -- very easy to position to YYZ from major east coast cities.

It seems CGK and TPE are also included in the sale with slightly varying fares from the OP. Jakarta would have a killer layover of 22hrs though.

Good find!

P.S. I recently few ICN-ATL on the top deck of the 747, and I highly recommend it. The window apex suite is huge with tons of storage space, and the service level is top-notch. I was a little worried about the rumors on the hot KE cabins, but I never had any issues.

I could think of worse places to have a 22-hour layover than SEL.

NYC Flyer helped me book this itinerary about a month ago (as well as numerous others mileage runs). Would highly recommend.

Should anyone be on the Nov 20th YYZ-ICN-KUL itinerary, let me know!

This fare seems to come and go quite a bit. Certainly not the first time I've seen it come up, though probably the first time I've seen it posted here.

Not a bad fare at all, and the connections are good, at least ex-YYZ. IIRC the connections weren't so good a couple years ago and involved a 12+ hour layover in ICN in one direction.

It won't let me update the title of the thread. I noticed it the second I hit post!
