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.
Yesterday, United was offering fares to Taipei from $669 round-trip, and now Korean Air’s chiming in with a fantastic deal to Hong Kong. The lowest fares are out of San Francisco, where you can fly to Hong Kong (with a short connection in Seoul) for $574 round-trip. Flights are available from late August through early December, but keep in mind that many dates require an overnight in Seoul, so double check your connection times before booking. You can also score flights to Hong Kong on Korean Air from Los Angeles for $666 or New York for $735 or Atlanta for $828.
Here are a few examples of what we found:
San Francisco (SFO)-Hong Kong (HKG) for $574 on Korean Air:
Los Angeles (LAX)-Hong Kong (HKG) for $666 on Korean Air:
New York (JFK)-Hong Kong (HKG) for $735 on Korean Air:
