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 China is offering a flash sale from the US cities including New York, San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC) to major Asian gateways including Tokyo (NRT), Seoul (ICN) and Hong Kong (HKG). While we have seen sales to Hong Kong and Seoul recently, Tokyo has been left out — until today. A sub-$400 flight from New York to the Japanese capital is quite a deal, even though it will require a stop in Beijing (PEK) in each direction. In order to score this deal, you must book by July 24 and travel between October 16, 2016 and March 31, 2017. To book, go directly to Air China’s website and view the promotion.
