Please Please tell me now
I was getting my trip to China and was comparing prices for two itineraries.

One: Seattle to Narita to Beijing to Narita to Seattle.
Two: Seattle to Narita to Beijing to Narita to Singapore to Narita to Seattle.

Don't ask me why I need to visit Narita that often.

Anyway, I wanted to know the price difference so that I can ask my boss to sponsor the Singapore leg if it's not too much of a difference. Otherwise, I'll pay for the difference, and make it a total personal trip.

Imagine my surprise when the prices came back from the site. The longer trip actually costs LESS than the straight roundtrip itinerary. It's SEVEN dollars cheaper!

I don't think I had to do too much of a convincing anymore for the trip.

Another neat they about this trip: the seats on all my 6 legs are exactly the same seat.
