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 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 Platinum Card® from American Express, 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.

Today we’re seeing some great fares between West Coast cities and Hong Kong. Non-stop flights with Cathay Pacific and United are available from Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG) for as little as $404 round-trip. If you have a choice in carrier, you’ll probably want to avoid United since some of the itineraries include a leg on its new 777-300ER (77W)— meaning a tight squeeze for those in coach due to the aircraft’s 3-4-3 seating configuration. Other options include Seattle (SEA) to Hong Kong via Seoul (ICN) onboard Asiana Airlines’ new A350 for $536 round-trip. The discounted fares are valid for departures from September through April 2019, but these bargains won’t stick around for long so you’ll want to book your flight as soon as you find availability for your desired dates.

Hong Kong offers a million options when it comes to using hotel points to book your stay. If you’re an American Express Platinum cardholder you’ll have access to Hong Kong airport’s new Centurion Lounge on your return trip.
