Probably Q class.

A recent deep discount similar promotion ended up in Q.

Zuji also seems to have that special, for $50 less. It doesn't mention the class either.

Best to call and check though.

previous similar offers via NRT have resulted in the QF segments being booked in Q and the AA segments in S, so no AAdvantage miles for the QF segments and low earning rate for EQP on the AA segment (0.25 EQP per mile flown). So not really suitable for Platinum Challenge. And with the new challenge rules for 2007, even if the QF segment was in an earning fare bucket, it would not count to the challenge requirement.

Most fares that you can find on Bestflights or Zuji are also on Costless Holidays with complete fare rules. This one books in Q class.

Thanks for the link to Costless Holidays, gave all the rules nicely...

AA: BOOK Q CLASS RETURN
QF: BOOK Q CLASS RETURN

This says Q class earns 0.5 EQP on AA per mile flown, except for "Tickets between North America and Europe, India, Asia and Latin America booked in O and Transatlantic tickets booked in Q are not eligible.".

And this says Q class earns none on QF (I think). Best to credit to Qantas.

So:

BNE-NRT (QF) = x2 = 8,882 miles + 60 S/C to QFF
NRT-LAX (AA) = 5451 mi x 0.5 x 2 = 5451 EQM + 5451 EQP ???

NB, It's interesting that Q on AA doesn't earn anything in QFF, and that Q on QF doesn't earn anything in AAdvantage.

Does anyone know if this fare would permit the following routing?


SYD-NRT-NYC-LAX-NRT-SYD.

Instead of going to NRT via NYC I would simply go via LAX?

Just trying to work out whether I can cover both coasts on this low fare :D

OPEN JAW
TURNAROUND OPEN JAW PERMITTED

STOPOVERS
1 STOP PERMITTED AT TYO ON THE INBOUND
JOURNEY ONLY
You can probably have an open jaw between LAX and NYC. I doubt you can do two stopovers, as the fare says only 1 stop permitted at TYO on the INBOUND journey only. Best to check with a travel agent or AA directly (assuming you can get a response from them).

NB, check Costless Holidays for the full rules...
