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.
Flying transpacific business class is a dream for many travelers, but it’s also out of reach for many due to the high cost of most seats. However, Delta’s currently offering discounted business-class fares that make that goal much more feasible. This deal can make that goal much more achievable with business-class seats from Canada to Beijing starting at $1,677 round-trip on Delta.
We’re seeing fares from Toronto (YYZ) and Montreal (YUL) to Beijing (PEK) from just $1,677 round-trip in Delta One, valid for departures from November through July 2017. Note that you’ll have to make a connection in Detroit (DTW) before you head to China on an Airbus A330 in a lie-flat seat. These business-class fares are definitely cheap enough to justify purchasing round-trip tickets to Toronto or Montreal to position yourself for the discounted long-haul segment.
