No O class anyway

I just tried to do it on a new ticket, they will let you use for the PU certs for S class, just not W. S class was only a couple hundred $ more in each direction, so the S ticket was still way...

Looks like they discontinued the 50% bonus for Y, my mistake, spoke too soon. Anyway, using ITA to get the class will at least tell you what you will be getting, which would be just the 40% for M...

$950- $980 A/I, depending on the routing. Coming back on a Sunday, so it the fares may be less than that mid-week. That's not including the itra-China leg yet, as I will check that later.

No, I would keep it all on DL metal to be safe about getting the double EQMS on all legs. That was my routing, PIT-DTW-PVG (above, using the nonstop DTW-PVG, it's nice) or maybe PIT-DTW-NRT-PVG

I had forgotten about that one, thanks. It's good for the price (free) but with the upgrade seats the way they are now (like finding a needle in a haystack), EF's extra features are worth it to me as...

Finding cheap M-class on NW/DL is not possible in the way it was years ago. I have not seen $1500 for years, and even $1800 from LAX is pretty hard to find these days.
