Update: Both American Airlines and Delta have matched United’s fares to Hong Kong from several US cities including New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. We’re now seeing economy fares from $330 round-trip and business from $2670 round-trip from San Francisco on Delta.

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.
