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.
Tokyo is normally one of the most expensive cities in Asia to fly to, but if you book right now, you can score a heck of a deal. Singapore Airlines, one of the top rated airlines in the world, even for economy travel, is putting the Japanese capital on sale for just $442 round-trip. We are seeing availability from September through December, and then the price jumps to about $548 total — which is still a great deal — until the end of the schedule in June. The price will appear as $548 for all dates with Google Flights and on ITA Matrix, but if you click through, Expedia will price those dates at $442.
