Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
West Coast residents and New Yorkers can snag cheap flights to Hong Kong (HKG) from as little as $463 round-trip. A variety of Asian and American carriers are offering the low fares from Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and New York (JFK).
All flights are on full service carriers -- meaning you'll receive a free checked bag, meal and seat assignment. TPG contributor Katherine Fan recently reviewed Air China's 777 economy class and enjoyed the experience.
There are no tricks to find these fares. Use Google Flights to search for your preferred departure and destination and then book directly with the airline or an OTA like Expedia or Priceline.
