honestly because you paid more than this deal PLUS on a US carrier, immma gunna have to say no Frown - anytime you fly internationally, you should try to fly on non-US carrier (well, certain ones, lol).

singapore airlines is ranked no. 2 on this list [airlinequality.com].

Thanks Serra!

Last week, I actually managed to snag an LAX > HND round trip from Friday March 30, 2018 - Sunday April 15, 2018 for $585 via Delta nonstop. That sale wasn't posted on SD and was literally only a few hours long until prices shot up. Do you think that was a good deal compared to this?

I just took a look on google flights for the same dates and i think it is about the going rate. The prices probably shot up because you bought tickets. Supply and demand and cookies affect airline prices. I can see ANA is about $600 nonstop but to NRT instead of HND. I been looking for flights to Tokyo and i have heard great things about ANA, JAL, and Singapore airlines. Delta is fine it is just an american airlines where leg room and service has been declining.

well it takes 20 mins from Haneda to Tokyo for 500yan while it takes an hour from Narita to Tokyo for 2000yan . So I would say that is a much better deal to me
You are jumbling everything together. If you are paying 2000+ yen, then you are on an express train and it doesn't take an hour to get to Tokyo. If it takes hour+ then you are on a bus or slow train and it doesn't cost 2000+ yen. It's $8 by bus and $10 by slow train.

No worries. Then again, there are some strong points to the deal I got, such as:

Haneda instead of Narita - half the distance and cost to travel to the city
Leaving Friday, returning Sunday - considering weekends are typically more expensive
Free in-flight messaging via Delta GoGo WiFi

But can you help elaborate a bit on why out-of-state carriers are better than those like Delta? Is it the overall service? Lack of delays? Better food? Thanks again.
All of the above. Once you fly with one of those airlines, you'll know the difference. Cool

However, in my case, I'm very price sensitive, so I'd usually go with the cheapest one. HND is definitely better than NRT.

please don't compare US carriers with SQ. They are like 100 years backward

This deal is almost $100 cheaper. It's a better deal. Neither this deal or your deal are particularly good. You overpaid. This one is about right. High $300s to low $400s is good.
I've only seen a $400 price point once since being on SD the last 3 years. And even then, these deals primarily have you fly weekdays. My gf is tagging along and the weekend arrival/departure work well with her spring break schedule.

I guess there's a difference between getting the cheapest price or the most solid value given life's circumstances.

I've flown Singapore. They're amazing. Yes, I wish my itinerary had that but I felt like the weekend schedule was too good to pass up. Maybe I should refrain posting these kinds of things in the future... lol

The last time I flew to Japan, last being like I'm still dealing with jetlag, I paid $429. The time before that it was $399. Those prices happen a lot. But yes, cheap fares tend to be on weekdays. Specifically tues-thurs.
