Conclusion

Good fare for spring travel to Asia. It definitely allows for some playing around with destinations as it permits open jaws and combinations with similar fares published by ANA via their Tokyo Narita hub. Matrix ItaSoftware or a Travel Agent are probably the best way to maximize mileage earnings through creative routings taking advantage of the free transfers included in the fare.
