Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
While we’ve recently seen some great airfares to Hong Kong (HKG) from the West Coast, the East Coast hasn’t gotten many notable deals. Today though, flights to the Pearl of the Orient are popping up from the Northeastern US to HKG for under $600 round-trip.
The cheapest itineraries are in January and February on American Airlines and Delta, but flights under $650 round-trip are available on all three alliances from September through November and January to May. We recommend doing your research through Google Flights and then booking either directly with the airlines themselves or with an OTA such as Orbitz or Expedia.
