I think the cheapest available is HUF 637,800 , cheaper then the example above, excellet fare though, was thinking to using it for months but has not pushed the trigger.

13 hour LAX overnight layover outbound and 12 hour LAX layover inbound? Yeah, no this isn't a deal. Domestic AA F and Finnair J - both are awful products.

Looks like flight distance is ~17,826 miles so credit to BA for 150%?

IAP has the same price as Google so no savings there.

Hi there, Thanks for posting. I am new to this and trying to understand. Did you just kinda spam Google flights to find these deal? I've been trying and am not nearly as good as you are. Is there some way to lock in on fares under 2k or something?

Also i have never thought of the world this way, but do people take these multi-leg international flights just to build status? So like for example, i do 2 difficult days bouncing around all over the world and i come back Delta Gold tier or something? Is that how it works?

Am I calculating this correctly? 1080 TP per trip + 50K Avios = Lifetime Gold status and ~1.6MM Avios after 32.4 trips. Who is in?

AY marketed overwater in one direction for under $1600 is pretty nice. Glad to see this back (if it even left).

If you read this forum and the BA TP run thread, soon enough you should become familiar with all the good OW fares that produce lots of TPs for relatively little money.

Executive Club is a particularly easy programme to eran status with, and i believe this fare has a min 6 nights stay.

It never left actually, at least not since the last post about it early June (title was for the SkyTeam routing but OW turned out to be cheaper on this post). I have been looking for options for 2 months now (i spent hours on that one, learning the schedules of every transatlantic options so that i can maximize transfer times and get the best products available...), still checking if the availability is still here for my dates and preferred routing every morning and trying to motivate the girlfriend to join me on this one. We finally got to learn today that she will have some vacation to take at this period so I may finally book that one for next year. The fact that the flexibility for changes is no longer there and that there is a 6 month minimum advance purchase was not helping for sure... Let's see if i still get to book that one.

the 600EUR cost for stopovers in the USA kills this for me
