Open-jaw flights from Los Angeles (LAX), New York City (EWR/JFK), or Washington (IAD) start from $328 USD to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok on Japan's ANA with layovers in Tokyo each way.

From LAX - $328 [momondo.ca]
From NYC - $396 [momondo.ca]
From WAS - $397 [momondo.ca]

BUT GENERALLY THERE IS LOTS OF AVAILABILITY FROM JANUARY 10 to MAY 11 2018...ESPECIALLY OUT OF LAX

Must depart any of the 3 mentioned cities in the US and fly to Kuala Lumpur THEN fly back from Bangkok to any of the 3 mentioned cities in the US. Fill in the gap between Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok with any of the cheap carriers flying between the cities. Check this Google Flights link to get your started (from $22 USD). [google.com]

Or more succinctly (thanks @glass_tiki):
Quote :
1. You must fly from Los Angeles (LAX), New York City (EWR/JFK), or Washington (IAD) to Kuala Lumpur
2. Buy a separate ticket from KL to Bangkok
3, Fly from Bangkok back to origin city
Bookable on Momondo but also directly using ANA's multi-city booking engine [ana.co.jp].

Sample from Momondo [momondo.com]

Just to clarify:

1. You must fly from Los Angeles (LAX), New York City (EWR/JFK), or Washington (IAD) to Kuala Lumpur
2. Buy a separate ticket from KL to Bangkok
3, Fly from Bangkok back to origin city


It's lots of hoops, but ANA is one of the best airlines IMO and SE asia is great to visit during winter/wet season

I've updated the OP with sample fares from each of the cities. Out of NYC, the lowest is around $390 so you've found the best pricing I would say from the East Coast.

Maximum stay is 6 months according to the fare rules. No guarantee you'll get availability of course but if you can find it, go for it.

Keep in mind you can also book this for slightly more out of LAX ($379) as a roundtrip and search quite easily via Google Flights [google.com] for availability. That link is to a 6 month stop-over at the destination.

The open-jaw just makes it even cheaper, that's all - but it's harder to search for.

Are you not finding the fare or is it that your own schedule isn't compatible? Post your dates and I'll see if I can help you out!

what's the best way to search? ANA and Momondo you have to try dates one by one...is there like a chart/calender type way to search for fares?

thanks!

I'm not allowed to link to the blog I took this from but here's some instructions:
Quote :
Dates are NOT visible on Google Flights but you can use it to help you narrow in on the cheapest fares by looking at roundtrips from your chosen city of departure to both Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok and filtering on ANA flights only. So if you're a New Yorker:
1. Look for cheap flights on ANA from NYC-KUL. Mark down the dates
2. Look for cheap flights using the Google Flights calendar from NYC-BKK. Mark down the dates.
3. Head to Momondo (we don't receive ANY commission!) and use the Multi-City option with your first flight as your chosen departure date from (1) for NYC-KUL and your second flight as your return date from (2) for BKK-NYC.

Thank you for offering. I was able to find the fare just not during spring break when I need it. I will need it at the way end of March to the first week of April.
