American and JAL have one-way Business class flights from Dallas (DFW) to Tokyo (HND/NRT) for 60,000 points + $5.60 tax/fees, NONSTOP or with a connection. Fare allows for carry-on bag and seat selection. Most outbound departures are between Apr 21st and May 3rd. Very limited availability, two or three seats per date.

Booking flights with miles/points is worthwhile when the cost of airfare is high. In this case, the cash cost of Nonstop Business class Polaris fares between Dallas and Tokyo is astronomically high, over $6,000 for a one-way.

When searching for your flight, use the fare calendar on American’s website and filter by Business class, then sort the fares by lowest cost.

Inbound arrivals will need to be vaccinated and boosted to avoid needing a pre-arrival negative result for a Covid-19 test, according to [per Kyodo News].

The Yen is currently trading below 133 yen per dollar. In some cases, goods and services in Japan may be about 33% cheaper if you’re converting USD to Yen.

For your return flight you have a few options. There are a few business class return flights for the same point cost on Apr 28 and May 1, and 2, but most of these have a connection or mixed cabin, so be sure to read the fare details on those. There are also a multitude of regular economy return flights for about 35,000 points + tax/fees.

If you use the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite Mastercard® with AA flights, you get: a 25% inflight food and beverage discount, a $125 AA flight discount after you spend $20,000 or more in purchases during your card year, and your first checked bag is free on domestic American Airlines flights for you and up to four companions traveling on the same reservation.

  • Tips: Rent a car for cheaper by using Priceline’s “Express Deals”. The rental car company will be hidden until after you purchase, but this allows those companies to undercut the published rate indirectly. You can remove low quality companies from those hidden results. The trick is to use the quality filter on their website to remove any rental car company with a review rating under 7.0 and then pick the deals that survive the filter. Note that the quality filter is only available on the desktop/web version of the Priceline website and isn’t available on the mobile version.
  • Tips: The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card allows for 1-to-1 point transfers to several airline loyalty programs. Booking with points is a good alternative to paying with cash when the price of airfare is high. Here is the current list of Chase Sapphire transfer partners: United, Southwest, jetBlue, British Airways, Iberia, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Air France, KLM, Virgin Atlantic, Aer Lingus, and Air Canada.
  • Tips: Use Tripadvisor to create a Hotel “short list”. First, plug in your dates and destination. Then select “Sort by Traveler Ranked”. Finally, select the “Traveler Ranking” filter to show “only 4* and up”. Use this resulting “short list” of hotels to find the cheapest one with a high ranking.
  • Tips: Hotel rates for Weekend dates are usually higher than the rates for Sunday through Thursday. Tripadvisor has a color-coded date calendar, red when the average hotel price for that day is more expensive, green for less expensive. You can use this to get an overview of what dates in the month are at a discount.
  • Tips: Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability. Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy, Skyscanner, and Kayak to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal.
