This is an amazing deal that won’t last. Hong Kong Airlines has sub-$600 roundtrip business class tickets from Los Angeles to both Shanghai and Bangkok. You can pull up these fares on Google Flights, and then book either via Expedia or via Hong Kong Airlines’ website (online travel agencies seem to have slightly lower fares, so I’d recommend booking through one of them).
Availability for this fare is wide open for travel between September and March, so there’s lots of flexibility with this fare.
It remains to be seen whether it will be honored, so I wouldn’t make any non-refundable travel plans around this fare yet. The good news is that you can always book now, and then you have 24 hours to cancel, should you change your mind.
I had the chance to fly Hong Kong Airlines recently on their A350 between Hong Kong and Los Angeles, and the experience was excellent, so I’d highly recommend them.
Unfortunately there isn’t anywhere practical to credit the miles from this fare, but if you’re looking to travel to Southeast Asia, these are fantastic prices.
