You should be able to stopover in Tokyo for an extra $100 according to the fare rules, so you could do something like JFK-HND-TSA-HND / STOP / HND-JFK and search that as a multi-city in the UR portal. It's not the best thing in the world, but if you don't mind the extra flights might be worth it.

JFK-KUL is still alive and well but I can't seem to find BKK. As anyone had any luck finding BKK lately at anywhere near the original price?

I have some availability to BKK, one short trip in early Feb and the rest next late spring to early summer, but somewhat above the original sale price for TPE as BKK is closer to 2,800 from JFK. If you PM me your preferred dates or range of dates, I can try to build an itinerary for you in our GDS.

I also have more availability out of LAX for any west coast flyers

You can try the YVR-HAN trip with an extended layover in NRT and then we can try and route you back through LAX where you just 'jump ship' and go home (assuming that's your base)

Thanks everyone for this. I was able to book this on Amex IAP for 1800 jfk>nrt>tpe which will allow me to complete my exec plat challenge in one trip!

Thanks so much!

Iím leaving tomorrow morning on my JFK-NRT-TPE//TSA-HND//HND-JFK trip that I booked via IAP for the whole family to visit relatives in Taipei and Taoyuan using this deal. Thanks for the post! Very excited, but also a bit nervous for my 1.5 year-old daughterís first long-haul flight. Her older brother is a pro at this point and will be just fine watching movies while slurping noodles!

Excited for you! I leave on 1/26 and return 1/28, just a quick mileage run bc I need to get back to work, I've done this before on United in economy so this will be much more comfortable!

If crediting to AA pls do advise how your eqms and eqds turn out and how long they take to post please!

Will do. My trip was booked as AA codeshare on the way to TPE, and pure JL flight numbers on the return - it was the only way to get the IAP discount for our dates. Off to the airport!

Just flew that same itinerary (12/28 back 12/30). I love being on planes as much as much as other AVgeeks and I am usually good at sleeping on planes. However, on the way to NRT, JL 3 day-time flight, I barely slept and it was a long journey.

Wow sounds like you and I are doing the exact same mileage run. Did you just stay at the Novotel in tpe or did you head into the city for a few hours and stay at a hotel there?

In terms of crediting should post in about 3 business days right? I am new to AA so this is an honest question.

I booked a hotel in the city, Grand Hyatt Taipei, since I wanted to visit the "Taipei 101" building.

I did the same too! How long did it take you to get to the hotel from the airport? Did you take taxi or Uber? Thanks for your help, funny are plans are almost exactly the same lol
