Update: Unfortunately this fare is now dead. Now we’ll have to wait and see if they honor.
Hurry, this deal most definitely won’t last.
At the moment Cathay Pacific has insanely low business class fares from Vietnam to North America. There’s availability through the end of the schedule, and there’s no minimum stay requirement for these fares.
The absolute best fare seems to be from Da Nang, Vietnam, to most Cathay Pacific North American gateways, as you can book that for just $675 roundtrip.
However, there are plenty of other exceptional business class fares, including from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. For example, you can fly roundtrip business class from Hanoi to New York for $1,100.
One-way tickets are more expensive than roundtrip tickets here, so if you want to fly one-way you’re best off just booking a roundtrip, and you’ll still come out way ahead.
You can find these fares on ITA Matrix or Google Flights. You can then book through Expedia or another online travel agency, or through Cathay Pacific’s website, as the fare shows just about everywhere.
These tickets book into the “D” fare class, so you can see here on wheretocredit.com about how many miles you’d earn if crediting to various programs.
This is a great way to earn miles with Alaska Mileage Plan, American AAdvantage, etc. For example, if crediting to Alaska Mileage Plan you’d earn 125% elite qualifying miles and 225% redeemable miles, plus any elite bonuses (of up to 125%). Though do note that you can’t credit Cathay Dragon segments to Mileage Plan, if that’s a consideration.
These fares won’t last, so I’d recommend booking ASAP if interested. Lastly, I’d note that it remains to be seen whether or not Cathay Pacific will honor these fares, so I personally wouldn’t recommend making any other non-refundable plans around these tickets for at least a few days.
But it is New Year’s Eve, so maybe this is a sale? 😉
