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.
Here's a cheap route we don't see often. We're seeing great prices from Las Vegas (LAS) to Tokyo (NRT) starting at just $489 round-trip. Flights to Tokyo Haneda (HND) are just a few dollars more.
We also found some affordable sales to Osaka (KIX) starting at just $508 round-trip. All fares are in either basic economy (Air Canada) or regular economy, but at these prices, you can't really complain. The Tokyo deal was first spotted by Secret Flying.
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 through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
