A few of the Finnair IFLEX2US fares that seem to always be around for about $3000 can do it too, now that JV airlines give you 2x EQMs on discount business. JFK-LAX-HEL-SIN would do it.

Would take this itinerary if it wasn't stopping in MAA. Not a fan of Chennai airport. Would rather stop in Bengaluru or Hyderbad.
