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, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
The cheap fares to Asia just keep coming, with more discounted fares to Hong Kong (HKG), Seoul (ICN) and Shanghai (PVG) from several gateway cities later this fall.
The best fares we found start at $597 from Newark (EWR) and Houston (IAH) to Hong Kong (HKG). There are also good rates to Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai from Cleveland (CLE), Houston (IAH) and Newark (EWR) starting around $630 depending on the route and time.
The flights appear to be available until early December (again, depending on the route — some offers end earlier than others). There also seem to be a bunch of other fares that are a bit more expensive starting around $700 from other locations to Asia.
Here are some of the fares we found:
Newark (EWR) – Hong Kong (HKG) for $597 on American (earns 18,990 EQMs):
Houston (IAH) – Hong Kong (HKG) for $597 on American (earns 16,694 EQMs):
