Wide availability. Fantastic price for a top notch airline, especially since booking with points right now is not great due to very high fuel surcharges.

Do you mind if I ask how you came across this deal? I'm always looking for good fares to/from Tokyo.
Also, I would've totally bit on this had I not booked an RT three days ago. Amazing deal, A++++++

FREAK YA! i almost always have to go SFO to LAX to NRT for any decent deal!
this saves me connection time both ways, even if some 450.00 LAX to NRT come about in the next month this deal is too good to pass up on.

I haven't checked thoroughly but looks like minimum stay to get this deal is one full week, shorter stays seem to be 745.00 which is still pretty good deal for SFO to NRT direct.

How is ANA compared to Singapore Airlines? I usually go from LAX to NRT and ever since I flew with Singapore, I've never flown with anyone else. The experience with that airline is simply amazing, even in standard coach. One time I was even bumped to premium economy for free.

But for this price, I might bite the bullet if the experience with ANA is as good?

Agreed Singapore and JAL are really tops in class, ANA is a notch slightly below but for the price cant go wrong.
The flights from SJC seem to be a 3-3-3 seating versus SFO which is 3-4-3 I'm no expert but one would think if you can book SJC might be better for economy seating roominess

There are now more human feces on the street of San Francisco than any cities on earth. Go to Tokyo and you'll never want to come back. EEK!

I make a lot picking up the feces and selling it as fertilizer.

SFO is on 777-300, SJC is on 787-900. The 777 has a wider body, so while it has an entire extra seat, the seats are actually a bit wider than the 787's seats in a 3-3-3 configuration. I believe standard economy seats on the ANA 787 have a higher pitch (legroom) than the 777.

So, if you're tall and skinny, 787. Rotund and short, 777. In between, go with whichever dimension you prefer.

I'm always hearing diff things about the Dreamliner 787. Some people say it sucks, some say it's good. I'd like to try it out for sure, but wondering if it's even a significant difference.

In terms of seats, it will come down to the airline, but most are doing 3-3-3 for coach, which isn't going to be a better-than-average experience. Same thing with seat pitch -- ANA has good pitch, but others aren't going to give you more leg room just because it's a fresh new plane.

The plane itself has some distinctive features, such as higher cabin humidity than other Boeing planes, to reduce dehydration and that dry feeling you get from flying. It's also a quieter aircraft in terms of engine noise and wind drag. Other than that, it's mostly just the new feel/look

Flying with points is only ever a really great deal if using business or first, in economy a cash deal is the better choice. I'm a deal hound but flying first and biz on JAL really sold me on the experience (you don't feel like shit when you get to your destination, really changes how the first couple days go)

LOL. That's reality nixing the fantasy. Time and time again I met people from all over the US and the world who think that the SF Bay Area must be really something because of all that money there. Nope. It's a dump. I don't know where all the money goes but it sure doesn't go into the surroundings. Your average starter $1,000,000 Silicon Valley house would be hard pressed to sell for $100,000 in most of the US as a fixer upper. But yet there's a Ferrari in the garage. I think it's the we are only temporary residents mentality. Many people come to the Bay Area when they are young to make their fortune. They have no intention to stay. For no other reason that it gets really expensive once people have a family. So many people move away to start a family. So why bother fixing up the dump of a house since it's all temporary?

Other than the blue mood lighting, there's no difference.

The flight I'm looking at is listed as both ANA and United. I've flown United before and so have a frequent flier account with United. Google gives me the option to book through United or through ANA. Any advantage/disadvantage to booking with one or the other?
