Airfare Steal Japan Airlines
Update: It seems many of the dates have expired, although I am still seeing about $2,400 roundtrip.
Wow I just found an amazing deal on the Flyertalk Premium Fare Deals forum. I was browsing through the forum and saw an interesting business class fare posted about a week ago for Japan Airlines for $2,400 roundtrip.
But today it appears that price has dropped to about $1,400 roundtrip. The fare is for flights from PDX-NRT mostly on Japan Airlines, with some flights on Air Canada, Alaska or AA depending on your routing. I have personally booked for next year.
Here is what you need to know:
- This deal should work with Ultimate Rewards, ThankYou Points and Membership Rewards and other points currencies
- This would be a good use of the 35% Business Platinum rebate
- It requires a 2 week minimum stay
- You can use Google Flights to search and find the fares. Here is an example
- I am seeing December, 2019 and June/July 2020 before the Olympics. Other dates appear to be available for not much more including some Olympic dates. For example this ticket overlaps the Olympics for less than $2K. Google Flights
- The JAL flights appear to be in the X class
I want to get this out quickly, but I’ll update this as I find more.
