We would know more about that trip if *ahem ahem* ::)

I knew my comment was gonna prompt this, but I went for it anyway.

I'm working on it!

IMO you should be comparing RT prices. Even if you only took the flight as a OW, had you paid for it you likely would have gotten it at a RT rate. CX F RT isn't much cheaper than 2xOW, but CX J is.

Then again, an RV for 10 days can easily run you in the $3,000 range from what I can see browsing the web.

That can easily trump hotel prices.

Same proportions.

OW JFK-HKG (N/S): CX J - $4.5K, CX F - $17.5K (~4X)

RT JFK-HKG (N/S): CX J - $7.5K, CX F - $29K (~4X)

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

More consistently 4x. But my post is in general. Some flights r more expensive ow X1 than rt.
