Do these extend into next summer?

I really want to visit Iceland but it sounds like I have to do a stopover in KEF to get the best fares. The RT requirement is also disappointing as I was hoping to stop on the way over seeing as the FI business class seats are not lie-flat and thus not conductive to good sleep. Oh well, you know what they say about beggers.

What fare class do these book into? C, D, J class earn 250% RDM and 150% EQM in Alaska Mileage Plan.

It books into A class which makes sense given the pricing.

It's kind of annoying that these show up as business class fares on google flights. They aren't even close. I get excited when I see the prices, then realize it's FI and not really business class.

Iceland Air is a poor flying experience and poor transit experience in KEF. Even at these prices, I am not tempted and don't want to give them any of my business.

While I really dislike FI, what is appealing to me is using it as a one way.

Would the following work?
- Buy a Saga Premium Flex round trip flight
- Fly the outbound
- Cancel remaining ticket
- Receive residual value back as refund (i.e. half of ticket)

Is there anything wrong with this logic or anything I am missing?
