A couple of days ago we brought you some incredible Cathay Pacific first class and business class fares for travel between Vietnam and North America (which were honored), and now we’re back with another incredible deal, this time for travel originating in the US.
This is the best business class fare I’ve seen nonstop between the US and Australia/New Zealand in years.
At the moment Air New Zealand and United have roundtrip business class fares of under $1,500 for travel between Chicago and Australia. You can travel to several cities for that fare, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, etc.
The fare is valid for travel between January 12 and November 30, 2019, and availability is wide open.
You can either take Air New Zealand’s nonstop flight from Chicago to Auckland and connect from there (which is pretty comfortable, since you’ll often be on a 787 the whole way), or you can fly with United through Los Angeles or San Francisco.
You’re best off searching these flights through Google Flights, and then you’ll be directed to an online travel agency (like Expedia) to book. If flying Air New Zealand, these flights book into the “Z” fare class, so see wheretocredit.com for details on how many miles you’d earn for these flights with various program.
If you’re interested, hurry, this fare won’t last!
