Big Week for Cheap Airfare –
Last week was a week filled with really good airfare deals.
It just makes me remember how important it is to stay on top of the deals.
This past week there was a sale to Beijing and Shanghai from all over the country for around $600 round trip.
The next day, Hong Kong went on sale from many cities for around $550.
There were also deals from Chicago and Los Angeles to Tokyo for $450.
I also heard of a mistake fare to Australia for around $400 round trip from New York or Los Angeles. I am not sure if those worked out for anyone. But I know if I lived there I would have tried booking one that is for sure. It was a Sky Team deal though…
I booked a trip to Shanghai on American Airlines in April. The next morning I saw the deal to Hong Kong. I searched but could only get the same weekend in April that I booked Shanghai. I like Hong Kong better because you do not have to deal with the Internet issues. Unfortunately, I could not make any other dates work so I missed out on that deal.
Were you able to book any of these? I know a couple people that managed to book a few of them. A great way to earn American Executive Platinum. Plus if you travel earlier in the year you still earn a lot of redeemable miles! That changes later in the year when the revenue model kicks in.
