Great Economy fares to Tokyo this fall ($489 round trip!)

I was poking around Google Flights for a friend and noticed that there's quite a few dates in Autumn with super cheap economy fares to Tokyo from New York. Normally these would be in the $1000-$1300 range but these are as low as $489! Most of the cheap fares seem to be on Air China via Beijing or ANA/United via Chicago or Los Angeles, and both have reasonable layover times. If it were me, I'd take the ANA itinerary because of ANA's stellar reputation.

As far as Business Class fares go, there's a few Air China itineraries for $2100, but from the reviews I've read, the food and service is terrible, so that $2100 is to get you a lie-flat seat and not a whole lot else.

Keep in mind that the arrival of Tokyo's fall weather lags New York's by a month, so the weather should be mild and pleasant on a lot of the Oct and Nov dates...
