This week a fare war has erupted on the highly competitive routes from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Hong Kong, as United, Cathay Pacific and Hong Kong Airlines duke it out.
Currently, the cheapest economy fares are on United, which has a fare of just $416 roundtrip SFO-HKG.
Any time you see a roundtrip fare for less than $500 between Hong Kong and LAX or SFO, you know you have a deal on your hands. Fares typically run closer to $800.
Cathay Pacific and Hong Kong Airlines are slightly more expensive at around $450 roundtrip, but that’s still a whopper of a deal for the 13-hour, 6,927-mile flight.
These deals are only available on flights from late August through early December.
What’s best about these low fares is that they are NOT basic economy– they include carry on and checked bags, and meals. However, on Cathay Pacific, you’ll pay extra for an advance seat assignment.
NOTE: These fares were available on Weds April 17 and subject to change.
