OneMoreDay before has written three articles about ANA Mileage: one, two, three.Points out the kind of ANA: Sino-American business round as long as 95K, business between the US and Europe as long as 80K, round up in Asia as long as 56K, and so on.But the ANA Mileage where there is insufficient, that is fuel, commonly known as YQ.Especially in Exchange ANA home business high fuel costs often heinous.Don't accept YQ air only, UA and Air Canada flights.So if we want to enjoy ANA high quality business class, is there any way to avoid paying the high cost of YQ?
Method one: US-Japan round trip + days roundtrip
ANA on December 1 last year and canceled all travel to Japan flight YQ, no YQ examples such as the following:
But a roundtrip remains YQ, probably to more than 300 more (never mind the transit time to the details:)):
Remember OneMoreDay in my book AA next March--using the new exchange table expected depreciation (1) mentioned in a skill, is to exchange the United States and Japan, and then BA exchange between Japan and back.Difference is, in the case of AA we do so in order to save mileage, in ANA's case it was to save YQ.In other words, US-Japan round first and then connected to the BA for JAL Japan round trip, with Shanghai (Pudong and HongQiao) JAL flights have started 7,500 Avios Exchange.The same number of Avios can exchange in Dalian-Tokyo, Tianjin-Nagoya, Taipei-Nagoya, Taipei-Osaka route.Other Japan and JAL flights are only 10,000 Avios.
Don't have to worry about luggage, ANA and JAL baggage Interline agreement, that is to say, even if it is a separate booking ANA+JAL, can also be requested at checkin time baggage to the finish line.
Method two: Upanishads y skills "has expired" This method is relatively new, and the focus today we talk about skills, just do not know how long it will last.That is, first all ANA flights in the United States, in the last paragraph with a United States Canada flights, so you can dispense YQ.Because Canada airport code are beginning with y, we put this ability called "meaning y skills."
Method three: HKG Dafa "4/22 update"
In short, beautiful round trip back in time to choose Hong Kong as a starting point, or for a stay in Hong Kong, can dispense YQ.As shown in the image above, in General beauty ANA roundtrip YQ up to $400+, but return to Hong Kong to stay, you can greatly reduce the YQ (the following example is based on the SJC, other United States cities):
Note that must stay in Hong Kong for more than 24 hours, otherwise YQ+ fees will be more than $ 400.City passports of other countries via Hong Kong on a visa to stay for 7 days, so people can easily buy buy buy in Hong Kong.
If you don't want to stay in Hong Kong, you can consider doing an opening in Hong Kong, but also can achieve the objective of saving YQ:
Guangzhou here can be replaced with other domestic cities (to Beijing and Shanghai, Chengdu, but I do not know why can not temporarily cut YQ, welcomes readers to test other domestic cities).If you live in Guangzhou, then return one to go to Hong Kong by high-speed rail to the airport, you can.Friends who lives in other places do?For example I had a SJC-WUH,HKG-SJC ANA open tickets, Wuhan-Hong Kong section in the middle of how to solve it?
Fortunately our airport is the world HUB of a member Cathay Pacific/Dragonair, air tickets to Hong Kong can be solved with BA miles (and similar).For example in Wuhan-Hong Kong only 4500 Avios solution:
OneMoreDay think this approach is better than one, long covered cities on the Mainland than in Hong Kong, after all, the airline much 4500 Avios covering Central and southern China, 7500 Avios can cover the entire South, 10000 Avios cover all Dragonair's mainland destinations.If you want to know how much I will go to Hong Kong need Avios, you can query the site: http://wandr.me/Award-Search/Avios-Map/HKG
What if OK replace Hong Kong with other cities?According to the OneMoreDay experiment, with Viet Nam and Indonesia Airport (HAN such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City SGN Jakarta CGK), but the new Malaysia and Thailand will not work, others did not try, readers are welcome to try and leave your message to the DP.However, since Hong Kong is Asia 1, Viet Nam and Indonesia is Asia 2,Asia 2 round-trip business-North America 115K, so are only suitable for tourism needs friends in Southeast Asia.
Sino-US trips, due to all flights departing from Hong Kong without YQ, so you can start from Hong Kong, return after stopped by his home city, pay attention to end the setting up in Hong Kong (can give up the last paragraph, though OneMoreDay not recommend it).ANA has a wonderful provision ticket cannot be at the beginning of the Hong Kong open, so in the end be sure to come back to Hong Kong.Chengdu-SJC round trip, for example, if you wanted to have a, you can use Exchange BA Miles for flights-HKG, YQ are following this cut on ANA flights (sit sit depends on the demand in the last paragraph):
OneMoreDay is here to provide a specific practices also depends on the audience's needs.If there is a problem, welcomed the open discussion in the comments below or in the cloud, there are new methods of shear YQ is welcome to provide.
