I need to go to BEY 12 Mar from YVR/SEA. All the OW carriers have prices well above what their competitors in *A/ST are offering. So, my boss is pushing for me to fly a *A carrier (or EK but I don't have any status with them!!) I have checked all major OW carriers (AA, BA, RJ, AY) and the lowest I can find is $700+ base from SEA, while other carriers have $442 base. YQ isn't that much different either. Is there a reason for this? I have AA EXP, CX G, A3 Blue, AC E.
