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.
The fare wars to Asia continue, now with flights to Taipei (TPE), Seoul (ICN) and other cities on sale. We are seeing flights as low as $381 round-trip with United and Delta from West Coast cities including Seattle (SEA) and San Fransisco (SFO), valid for departures from August through December 2016. This is a very extensive fare sale, with availability from most major US cities around the $500 mark. We recommend using Google Flights to find your desired itinerary, and then continue to the airlines’ websites to complete booking.
