Scored this business class flight April 2020 , bit of bouncing around the US on the way there but business/first all the way to Washington, booked with American Airlines, flying Fiji Airways. Coming back (hopefully) on Fiji's new A350-800 lie flat.
Great price and well done.

What are the additional sectors that have you ‘bouncing around’?

Nice fare. Are you a resident of Fiji or connecting there via other means? If 'other means', what is the total fare ex AU? (current business class fares all the way from Australia to IAD are in the region of $5300-$5500, so looking for a comparison).

No Aussie, just got to book flight to Fiji will use my Amex $450 discount for that one. So all in all should be under around 3600-3700 all up. Fares atm to NAN are around $650 economy, as its a short flight , i can manage that.
I go out via SFO and have a few hours and then an internal flight to LAX (few hours there too) then on to IAD. For that fare, i think i either had to do that out or return. Bit of a mammoth trip but id rather that than pay a heap more or go economy ( sore back!) Coming back is easier IAD - Lax - NAN.

Out of interest, are you going to credit these flights to Qantas Frequent Flyer? What's the status credit earn like?

If the flights are all operated by FJ and/or AA and have QF, FJ or AA flight numbers, you should be able to add your Qantas number to the booking and earn for those flights.
