Two big Asian airlines launched a good fare sale this week. These deals are good from several US gateways to cities all over Asia. So if you’ve been sitting on the fence about going, now would be a good time to bite.
How do we know this is a good sale? Well, any time you see transpacific fares in the $600-$700 range, you know you’ve got a good deal on your hands. We’ve seen fares as low as $500 roundtrip on other Asian carriers, but it’s rare to see them go this low on two of Asia’s premier airlines. Plus, the window for travel is very wide for this sale.
Let’s take a look at the Cathay Pacific sale first.
The Black Friday Sale runs from now through November 30th with fares running at about 30% off in economy and 35% – 40% off in business. What’s best about this sale is its breadth. It’s good from all US gateways to 55 Asian cities. And the window for travel is super long, running from December 25 through May 23, 2017, and then again from August 15 through November 26.
Economy ares from SFO and LAX are just $651. What’s remarkable here is that fares from Chicago and New York are only about $30 more, starting at $685. From Boston, the lowest sale fares are $725.
Premium economy, which is a really nice seat and exclusive section on Cathay is going for about $1300-$1400.
Business class is $4,340 from all US cities.
Next up is the Singapore Airlines sale:
Singapore Airlines’ sale fares are slightly higher coming in starting at $675 from including Los Angeles and San Francisco and $699 from New York and Houston. Restrictions are a bit more cumbersome here, too.
Singapore’s new Premium Economy fares to Singapore are $1,325 departing San Francisco and Los Angeles, and from $1,399 from JFK for travel to Singapore and select Southeast Asian destinations.
Regrettably this sale does not include Singapore’s new nonstops between SFO and Singapore (flights SQ31 and SQ32). To get the sale fares, SFO flyers must transit Hong Kong first.
Flights must be booked between November 14-28, 2016 for travel January 10-September 30, 2017. Fares are applicable for midweek travel Sunday through Thursday, and a $100 surcharge for weekend travel (Friday/Saturday) in Economy and Premium Economy Class. Blackout period for Economy Class is June 16-July 9, 2017 with a $100 surcharge for travel from July 10, 2016-August 14, 2017.
