  1. Very nice deal, although wish they had an Upper Class offer as well. I really want to try Virgin, so guess I’ll transfer to ANA for the best Upper Class conversion rate.

  2. the routes must be hurting if they are offering this in the summer. weak US economy, weak dollar, and tons of new competition must be lightening loads.
