Hi all, looking for some advice or insight. I would like to travel to Tokyo with my partner Rob, leaving Los Angeles after 2200 on Oct 23rd or anytime on the 24th with the aim of being in Tokyo by 5-6pm on the 25th, but earlier if possible. I have PLT with AA, so Sapphire OW or however you want to look at it. My partner has a genetic protein deficiency and is prone to DVTs in his legs - he shouldn't spend more than 2 hours seated in a conventional chair. The normal solution to this on longer trips is to make him get up every few hours for 5-10 minutes of laps around economy, which works fine. On the other hand, he's prone to motion sickness so it's better if he can sleep for a majority of the flight. (I sure can pick'em, eh?) I don't have Business Class money, and unfortunately this late in the game I don't even have business class miles. 155k each way per person just isn't going to work - I have 267k available and will use every one of them if necessary, but buying thousands of miles is also illogical. Here's the other catch - I need to actually EARN miles on these flights to keep my status for next year. If I need to burn miles for Rob, I'm happy to do so, but I at least need to be a revenue passenger, possibly on my own PNR sitting in Y. The place we are staying is closer to HND than NRT, and we would like to take advantage of the international dateline to experience Halloween in Tokyo and at home by flying out of HND on the 0005 flight of 01Nov to SFO, connecting there to LAX and arriving around 9pm on the 31st. I have paid for the night of the 31st so we can stay up until 11am on the 1st if necessary. If anyone can find anything more brilliant than I can or has any suggestions, I would be very appreciative. The $1076 round trip on AA LAX-NRT, JAL HND-SFO and AA again SFO-LAX is acceptable but I would like to get Rob in Y+ or J if at all possible. Sorry for the rambling and over-explanatory post, but I value any expertise or advice on something I might be missing. Thanks!
