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.

ANA and Asiana Airlines are currently offering some incredible fares for travel from Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK) to Hong Kong (HKG). The discounted fares are available for departures from late August through early December 2016, as well as January to April 2017. We’re seeing round-trip fares starting at $516, and all itineraries require a stop in either Seoul (ICN) or Tokyo (NRT). The stop is a small inconvenience considering the great price and that both Asiana Airlines and ANA are rated by TPG as top airlines for long haul international economy travel.
