Last week, we wrote about a great deal on cheap business class seats to Asia. Now, we're seeing even lower prices. We've spotted business class tickets from New York (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX) for as low as $1,487 round-trip. The deals are on airlines such as China Southern and Hainan. We've written about both business class products before, and marveled at the great hard product and service.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or an OTA like Vayama.
