As I’ve been seeing the past few weeks, the regional vacations spots are always booked up first through the fanfares. This week Ho Chih Minh city and Singapore are already sold out as of 11am HKT. As always, keep in mind the departure periods posted and take a look at my recommended picks below.
You can also utilize the United Club lounge pass I am giving away in HKG or other cities such as Chicago ORD, one of United’s main hubs in the US.
Regionally I think Taipei & Fukuoka are decent deals, but not fantastic. Honestly I don’t even think Singapore or Ho Chih Minh were amazing steals to begin with since Cathay Pacific is only one of many players on these routes. For example, United Airlines flights to both these cities are traditionally cheap, as well as the budget carriers to Singapore.
Long-haul however, I see some awesome prices. The destinations in China are getting cold already this time of year so hence the drop in demand.
For my long-haul picks, I think the last four are great prices, Melbourne (it’s approaching summer there,) Paris, Los Angeles, and especially to Chicago. Please note Melbourne and LA flights only get 1 day to book so act fast, the Chicago and Paris flights you can wait a little, but the departure dates are next week already.
Don’t forget you get a flat 500 Asia Miles per booking, so these are not good for mileage runs and keep in mind the dates these fanfares are available.
