While waiting for my wife to recover from knee surgery enough to be interested in flying, I have been contemplating the various combinations and permutations of exAsia fares that connect through on the AA NRT-DFW flights. She wants to visit her kids in Texas.
And avoid the 14 hour flight ex SYD in economy.

Now I realise that Japan is considered a first world nation and would not expect any great bargains for a fare originating in Japan, but given the knee surgery, a business award/fare to NRT followed by a reasonable L or M class fare ex NRT was looking as a distinct possiblity. Preferably on a day where an eVIP could be used.

Much to my surprise today, ** ALL ** the AA ex Japan economy fares are now B class.

Even on my normally overflowing source of all the fares the TAs never tell you about. (zuji.com.au)

Now given that the B class fares are about $1000 more than L/M and given that the L/M class fares are available on the same route exDFW, can someone avail me with a possible explanation of what might be happening?

The S/L/M fares ex SIN/BKK/CMB are looking like the only choice......

Unhappy wandering at the moment.

Are you trying to book for next week?

There are cheap fares NRT-DFW for sept, such as the

LMXZP6 fare at $1352 plus tax, but does have a 28 days advance purchase requirement
MMXZP6 fare at $1465 plus tax with a 21 day AP
KMWZP6 fare at $1579 plus tax with a 14 day AP
HMXZP6 fare at $1693 plus tax with a 7 day AP

The fares this month are higher with th H fare at $2205 plus tax , for example

I was looking at Oct/Nov - a time period that I would have thought would have been cheaper still.

Two weeks ago zuji showed those fares for that time period
zuji (and aa.com) did not this afternoon. And the L farees that did show a couple of weeks ago were about $1100 plus taxes,
