I’m always on the hunt for mileage runs and I’ve been a bit spoiled by The Flight Deal ever since they’ve formed. I found a great deal from Los Angeles to Beijing, China for $755.50 taxes included. The upside is that the flights are operated on American. I am a loyal oneworld guy and I’ve already booked/flown well over 100,000 miles so far this year, so I won’t be able to take advantage of this. I would definitely book this fare for next year’s date if it were available. The routing is LAX-ORD-PEK-ORD-LAX.
This will earn you 16,646 EQM’s (Elite Qualifying Miles) when credited to American Airlines at 4.5cpm (cents per mile). You can also use SWU’s (Systemwide Upgrades) to upgrade from Coach to Business Class on American Airlines. This fare is bookable on aa.com and the sample dates are: October 16 – October 22nd.
