In the last 2 days a deal has opened up to Japan, mainly for the fall. There are great prices from both Seattle (starting at $461) and Portland ($471),  from American Airlines and their OneWorld Alliance partner Japan Airlines. These deals run from late August to early December, for early and mid-week departures. Booking directly through AA provides more options, but online travel agencies are also available. These prices are several hundred dollars below regular fares, an unexpectedly good deal. Seattle includes both directs and 1-stop flights; Portland has short layovers in L.A. or Dallas.

These are main cabin economy flights, so seat selection and checked bags are included. The trans-Pacific legs are flown by either AA or Japan Airlines, but if you are flexible with your dates I recommend JAL. Seats have 34″ pitch between you and the seat in front and are 18″+ wide, plus include power outlets. I flew JAL to Tokyo in 2016 and from service to seat it still ranks as one of my favorite international flights. These prices have not expanded to other major airports yet, but hopefully we see an expansion similar to the Australian sales currently running.
