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. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
Air Canada is currently offering unbelievable fares from New York to Hong Kong, with one or two stops in each direction. Flights are available starting at $357 round-trip in September, but most dates are a bit over $400. Discounted flights are also available on a combination of Air Canada and Cathay Pacific, depending on your dates. To book your flight, run a search on Google Flights and continue to Air Canada’s site to finish booking. These flights earn 100% elite-qualifying miles and 50% redeemable miles with United.
