How to Search for Availability:
- Use ITA Software Matrix Airfare Search and use the following search criteria:
- Departing from: IAH
- Outbound Advanced Routing Code:
- Textbox 1: nrt
- Textbox 2: minconnect 2880
- The 2880 after minconnect is telling ITA to search for a connection of at least 2,880 minutes or 48 hours. ITA will start to error out once that number is greater than 4,020 or so, however, longer stopovers are still possible. Using the result as a guideline, play with the stopover length on Priceline’s multi-destination feature to see if it price. It is trial and error.
- We are showing NRT as the stopover on the outbound. If you would like to stopover in Tokyo on the return then move nrt and minconnect 2880 to the Return Advanced Routing Code section and move ua ua and maxconnect 240 to the Outbound Advanced Routing Code section
- Destination: BKK
- Return Advanced Routing Code:
- Textbox 1: ua ua
- Textbox 2: maxconnect 240
- Click on the “Advanced Routing Codes” link to enable advanced routing code input
- Select “See calendar of lowest fares”
- Enter departure date
- Length of stay: 5-12
- The maximum search range is 7 days, so enter ranges in this format: 0-7, 3-10, 5-12, etc.
- The ITA search page should look like the following when all values are inputted.
- You cannot buy tickets through ITA. To buy tickets, follow our instructions below in the “How to Buy Airline Tickets” section.

- Segment 1: Houston [IAH] – Tokyo [NRT]
- Segment 2: Tokyo [NRT] – Bangkok [BKK]
- Segment 3: Bangkok [BKK] – Houston [IAH]
- We entered this as three segments like the above to price. You might have to enter it as 4 segments to price as show exactly on ITA to price. Its all trial and error
