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.
Cathay Pacific is putting Southeast Asia on sale, with fantastic fares to several destinations. We are seeing fares at just above the $500 mark for New York to Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and more. These represent fares we often don’t even see with the mainland Chinese carriers, and Cathay Pacific has one of the best international economy-class products out there. And the best part of this sale is that it is available for travel from September all the way through May of 2017, with the Christmas period being blacked out. Fares are available from all Cathay Pacific North American destinations, including New York (JFK), Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX) and San Fransisco (SFO).
Here are some examples of what you can book:
New York (JFK) to Manila (MNL) for $516 round-trip in September:
San Fransisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) for $533 round-trip in November:
New York (JFK) to Bangkok (BKK) for $586 round-trip in November:
