2-in-1 trip: Vancouver to Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan - $865 CAD roundtrip including taxes on ANA in Business Class!

Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan

All Nippon Airways (one of the world's top airlines, ranked #3 this year) is showing an incredible price on a 2-in-1 trip from Vancouver in *BUSINESS CLASS* that allows you to visit and spend time in both Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan for $865 CAD including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop in Tokyo on the way to Sydney, and are non-stop from Sydney to Tokyo, and also non-stop from Tokyo back home to Vancouver.

NOTE: These are booking class Z tickets (heavily discounted Business Class). But you still earn 125% of the miles. On these flights that's nearly 30,000 miles! ANA Mileage Chart.

These are tickets that are *supposed *to cost more like $5500 to $6,000 !

(December 7 appears to be the latest in the year you can depart. You can return pretty much any time in the first half of 2018, as far away as June 7th, 2018).

NOTE: Many more date combinations than what are listed above appear to work (although only within these months). You can try playing around with different dates to give yourself more or less time in Japan or Australia. I'll keep adding more dates to this post as I find them.

These will be disappearing like lightning. Don't give up just because one set of dates has sold out. Keep trying different dates, even slightly different dates from what I've posted can make a difference (those dates are likely to sell out first). Try focusing on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday dates.

I'm adding some more working dates now that I have a minute. Feel free to comment below and post dates you've tried that are working to help out your fellow traveler.

4. Click through from Momonodo to the booking site showing the cheap price. Expedia is one of the booking sites showing these, and would be my pick.

If these turn out to be a mistake, historically, Expedia has been one of the better sites for honoring mistake fares (no guarantees though).

Priceline is also showing these, and they have also been pretty good at getting tickets issued quickly enough during crazy demand periods of mistake fare madness. Priceline also offers completely free cancellation within 24 hours, which gives you time to decide.

Update: These are also showing up directly on the ANA website (see update below).

Update: These are also showing up directly on the ANA website

1. Go to the ANA All Nippon Airways website

(The country should be set to 'Canada' in the top right corner)

2. Click on 'Multiple Cities'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to Tokyo, Japan (TYO)
Tokyo, Japan (TYO) to Vancouver

4. Change the 'Class Fare' from Economy to Business Class

5. Try dates from the list above

NOTE: Once your search completes, you should see some options at the top. Change it from Special to Special Plus. Extra special indeed!

IMPORTANT: Keep your expectations low until it's clear that these tickets have been issued and will be honored. I know it's very exciting, but I just don't want to see anyone's dreams crushed! It's usually clear within 12-24 hours whether or not the tickets have been issued and will be honored.



Update @ 1:10 PM PST / 2:10 PM MST / 3:10 PM EST - I think this is over now. I haven't seen any dates in the last 20 minutes that are still working. I will update the post as soon as I hear from people about the status of their ticket.

Generally in these situations, if all goes well, you should receive a booking confirmation code (6 characters) or ticket # (13 digits) that you can use to check your reservation directly on the ANA website. If that happens, it's a good sign, because it means ANA has issued the tickets and your reservation is solid.

Update 8/8 - It's been 3 days, and with the weekend well over, giving ANA more than enough time to deal with this, it's now safe to say that it appears ANA is going to be honoring what was the largest mistake fare they've ever had, and one of the largest mistake fares of the year from any airline.

- Quite a few people have heard from ANA customer service reps confirming that ANA is going to be honoring all tickets that were actually issued.

- The only cancellations I've heard of were from bookings made through booking sites that were not fast enough at actually getting the tickets issued (such as ClickMyTrip).

- You can check your booking directly on the ANA website, using your e-ticket number.

- A huge thank you to ANA for honoring this.

- Congratulations to everyone that was able to book this, and enjoy your multi-continental trip in business class!

Here is some info on the airport lounges you will get free access to, because you are flying business class

TOKYO (HND) - At Tokyo's Haneda airport look for the ANA Lounge. You do not get access to the ANA Suite Lounge (that's for first class). But the ANA Lounge for business class is also very nice! You can read the reviews on Yelp.

SYDNEY (SYD) - At Sydney airport look for the Air New Zealand International Lounge. You get free access to Air New Zealand's lounge because you are flying on a Star Alliance partner (ANA).

You can find some more info and a map on the Air New Zealand website
