The title says it all
Just go buy those visitor passes like fumitani and Simon did for their JMB Sapphire run
If you can do a Z fare, you should be able to pull it off with something like nrt-ord-hkg-nrt. If things dont change with my travel plans I'll be GRR-ORD-HKG-NRT-SFO-ORD-GRR over thanksgiving.
BTW how have things resumed for you since the earthquake in march?
Not great. The building housing my office at work was heavily damaged in the quake (repairs due to finish Jan 2013) we're in temporary accommodation until then, our house (rental) was damaged and will be demolished, and with 200,000 people having lost their homes in the area, it's unlikely we'll be able to find somewhere else to live, and we lost almost all our staff at my wife's language school. Doing 100+ hour work weeks for the foreseeable future...
So it's been a pretty hellish year, to be honest. And we're still lucky, not to have lost loved ones.
won't work for ANA.....
ANA does not give 120% PP and +400 PP for Japan Star Pass.
35k Run isn't very hard, but Sendaiben what is your budget and time? 35k PP you are looking at around 300,000yen roughly......(with positioning and hotel and food bills)
Budget is not such a big deal, but time is extremely limited. Maybe four or five days in early- to mid-August
four or five days to get 35k?! are you kidding me?! there will be no efficient way to do that (price wise)....
You would probably need to do it in PAID F (which makes no sense)
NRT-JFK within 26 hours will get you 20k...do it twice and 40k? cost is over 4 million yen? whoa no way...
Yeah, there is no budget for paid F, unfortunately
If I could fly paid F, I don't think I'd care about SFC...
let me know of some dates you can travel and let's get this rolling...
Sell your house, car and clothes ......
If you are at UNI wouldn't a different time be better (price wise) Like do this over a few consecutive weekends in October/November? Or are you in need of the advance thingy!
He can use the TK's ex-HKG PY ticket but that only gives you 100%PP
FYI you aren't supposed to get the bonus with JL's Welcome to Japan Air Pass, at least according to the CSR
House - rental and damaged during the earthquake
Car - damaged during the run away to KIX
Clothes - too big for Japanese
suppose to be no
What about using SQ like I did? The TK PY fare would have been perfect for you Sendaiben except for your time restrictions. Why not just fly to CTS and come see me a lot?
As if seeing you once isn't enough?
I`m trying to be proactive about his MR! Grasping at straws I know.....
And CTS isn't a good MR route
Japan is the worst place to start a MR
Well there was that one that went back and forth between a small island and could be had at a special price of only a few 1000 Yen per sector and there was the bonus points and blah, blah ! But that was quite a few years back...didn't you partake fumitani?
I heard about that. Sounded like hell. You`d have to fly like soooo much and well hardly seemed worth it. They did have a promo back two years ago for Bronze after 10 flights to some island too and another promo last year for trial Platinum to selected SPG Platinums. I never understood the connection between being an SPG Platinum and getting NH Platinum........
I had SFC since 2007.....so I haven't bothered to requalify.
Don't you remember the discussion it was the OP "Changi" who thought the whole thing out, it was like DIA for 300,000 JPY! At the time I was too busy enjoying the CMB deals before they got shut down !
I was too busy enjoying the CMB fares also....
I miss CMB-LAX for 2300 USD in F
