    Hi FlightDeal –

    been trying to price a flight for about an hour with SFO > NRT/HKG > HKG/NRT > SFO with a a valid stopover fare in Novemeber. Reading your guides, have tried a variety of arguments for the three segments but not having any luck. The best results I can achieve appear to be three segments but with RT fares (six total) instead of the correct stopover pricing. Any tips to guide a noob would be appreciated!

    @Josh – NRT is not a valid stopover for this fare. Korean flies via Seoul — so you can’t stopover in Tokyo.

    @FlightDeal -Ah, that would explain i, and saves me some sanity.. I thought that if I could price a flight from ICN > NRT or from SFO > ICN > NRT that it would be a valid connection. Is there a free source that would show valid connection cities for an airline? I think I read in one of your posts to look at a carrier’s hub and see where they fly. Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to work in this case and I haven’t unearthed a source yet that compiles good routing info. Guess I’ll have to keep learning the hard way, but your guides are a step in the right direction.

    @Josh – for routing info — ExpertFlyer has it. Its about $10/month.
