    Is a longer stopover in Tokyo available in this deal?

    @Faith – the $714 fare is gone. It is now $824 and a stopover option is available. Here’s a quick one we did with 52 hours in Tokyo. On the advance routing code, we use nrt /minconnect 2880

    /minconnect is telling ITA to search for minimum connection time
    the number after is in minutes. 2880 = at least 48 hours. as you can see from the screenshot, the stopover cost an extra $100 + taxes and fees on top of the $824 fare.
