    This deal just doesn’t work from SEA. What am I missing? I’m trying 7 nights in March -April 2016. No luck.

    @Christina – Asiana does not service Seattle every day. We have updated the post to include how to search for availability on ITA and then using those dates to book on Orbitz. Here’s an example from 3/28 – 4/5:

    Thanks for an another amazing deal! Fabulous work. I was able to book tickets for the whole family over spring break.

    I had a quick question: can we earn any miles on this flight? Should we create Asiana frequent flier accounts? (We also happen to be flying Asiana for a trip to Manila). Thanks!

    @Mr. D – this is an L class fare. It does not earn miles anywhere.
