Almost forgot. Clicked on the thumbs up to thank the OP for taking the time to post the deal. Hope to see more like it posted in RFD in future departing from airports across Canada. I always find premium fare deals interesting, even when I don't use them.

And the island hopper can be booked with 40000 aeroplan pts one way. Just look for the united flight with 5 connections. Costs is $21 in taxes one way. That's for economy. Business availability is scarce and costs 87k one way,
I tried to look this up in Aeroplan, but I was limited to only three multi-city flights. Any tips on how to do this search?

You have to call in to book and pay a $30 booking fee.

This site goes over it pretty well : https://canadiantraveltips.com/

Do a one way booking from Guam(GUM) to Honalulu(HNL). Using October 15 as an example. 5 flight choices will pop up, and pick the one with 5 stops on United. The cost will be 40K aeroplan points and $21. Book. You do not have to call in and pay as there are no stops longer than a few minutes(30 min - 40 mins). This is not a multi city flight its a one way flight with 5 stops and considering the flight is often $1300 the flight is a great deal. You could book HNL/GUM/HNL for 80k return and $60 in taxes which is also just a round trip ticket. Now add YVR/GUAM/HNL/YVR. The taxes jump, cause AC metal shows up on some of the flights, to $240. Separate the Guam Honolulu part by a few weeks or months and use Guam to fly where ever in Asia.
Maximum Number of Stopovers
For round trips outside the North America, you are allowed 2 stopovers (stays over 24 hours), while within NA you get 1 stopover.
For one way trips, you don’t get any stopovers at all, but you can still do layovers.
You do not have call aeroplan to book your flights. If the flight is complicated calling is a good idea. For example if I wanted to fly YYJ -YYZ and there is no flights booked or the taxes are high for some reasons what can I do? Could book YYJ to somewhere close to YYZ or in my case book YYJ/SFO/YYZ. The taxes on the SFO-YYZ flight are $7. Do I call aeroplan? No way. If you call and try and book this route you will be told no way. But the flight is bookable.

If your comfortable booking trips on your own go ahead but getting stuck in an airport in Kenya might be worth paying $30 for.

Another good site for understanding Aeroplan with excellent MPM explantions:

Too bad it's so pricey. I paid extra for premium economy to Japan once and wasn't worth it, I'd rather have put the money into a fancy hotel instead. But if you can afford all 5-star hotels you could probably swing business class as well.

Do people who buy $4,000 Business class plane tickets hang around a site like RFD?
We sure do...

For those in Vancouver:

Very few departure dates available, but Hainan Airlines has business class seats, YVR to PEK at decent prices. Shows up in Google Flights at CAD $2618, but when you click through to the airline the fare comes down to CAD $2366 return. One stop to YYC on WestJet....and no, I don't see where those in Calgary get anywhere near this fare. The flights I looked at had less than three hour connections, each direction. Hainan Airlines is rated as a 5 star airline by Skytrax.

What's the point in wasting time on RFD if you can "throw away" thousands of dollars on a premium plane ticket?
