Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
Hong Kong is back on sale! These fares aren’t quite as fantastic as what we saw last week, when United had deals from several cities to Hong Kong from $515 round-trip, but there are certainly some solid options available, from airports around the US. The best deal this time around is on Korean Air from San Francisco, priced at $574 round-trip with a stop in Seoul in each direction. Alternatively, you can fly Asiana’s new A380 from Los Angeles (also with a stop in Seoul) for $666 or from New York for $689. United, meanwhile, has nonstop flights from San Francisco for $687 or Newark for $762.
Here are a few examples of what we found:
San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $574 on Korean Air:
Los Angeles (LAX) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $666 on Asiana:
New York (JFK) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $689 on Asiana:
San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $687 on United (earns 13,828 PQMs):
Newark (EWR) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $762 on United (earns 16,120 PQMs):
Dallas (DFW) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $763 on American (earns 16,200 EQMs):
