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 Japanese capital is one of the world’s most fascinating and dynamic cities, and it’s currently on sale. United and ANA are offering nonstop service to Tokyo starting at just $387 round-trip from Los Angeles (LAX). These prices are even better than what we saw in last week’s sale, which was already one of the best sales we’ve seen to Tokyo. Tickets are issued on United ticket stock, but are not searchable using Google Flights. Instead, you’ll have to use Momondo, which will show you prices from multiple OTAs. Right now, Citi Air Travel is offering the lowest price by about $30 dollars. This deal is valid for departures on many weekdays from September through December, with September and October offering the lowest prices.
