Update: These fares are no longer available, but will be honored by Cathay Pacific.
These fares aren’t quite as good as the first and business class fares we saw recently from Vietnam to North America a couple of weeks ago, but this is otherwise the best Cathay Pacific first class fare that I’ve seen in years.
Cathay Pacific has $1,500 one-way first class fares from Portugal (Lisbon or Porto) to Hong Kong. This requires an intra-Europe connection, and that connecting flight will be in business class. It seems like the most popular routing option is through London Heathrow.
As you can see, the longhaul flight books into the “A” fare class, so you can check wheretocredit.com for details on how many miles you’d earn with various programs for that.
Happy booking, for anyone who may be looking for a one-way premium ticket from Europe to Hong Kong at a very reasonable price!
