American: Newark / Washington D.C. – Tokyo, Japan. $736. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

This is as about as cheap as it will get for Tokyo from the East Coast. This fare requires flexibility for travel next week or the week after. We do not believe this fare will last due to American attacking United at its hubs in Newark and Washington D.C., and that is why we are posting this off schedule (for long time readers, you know we usually post from 10AM – 3PM everyday). American Airlines allows you to hold the fare for up to 24 hours — if you need time to decide, put it on hold and purchase later.
