American / British Airways – $945: Chicago – Mumbai, India. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

American and British Airways are putting Mumbai on sale with very good availability. Star Alliance carriers (Lufthansa mainly) also have this route on sale for cheaper. However, the fares are non-mileage earning except for a few very limited dates, all United metal. But those routings with United involves airport transfer from LaGuardia to Newark on both the outbound and return — not ideal at all.
