Usually I don’t think Cathay Pacific / Dragonair’s sales are too good, but I saw they have a new sale for Premium Economy which bundles a long-haul and short-haul fare at various price points. This seems like a pretty good deal to me, particularly to Australia, which falls under the lowest price point.
Now that it’s post-holidays there aren’t many bookings so looks liek CX/KA are trying to drum up some reservations in their usually not full premium economy cabins.
Below is the breakdown before fuel surcharges / taxes: $11,380 to Australia is great in Premium Economy, plus you get a short haul flight, which can be to an expensive destination such as Sapporo in Hokkaido Japan. That flight alone in the winter-time is probably at least $5,000 in economy.
Also, if you pick a Dragonair destination not also operated by CX, like Phuket, you can fly in BUSINESS class, cool.
Travel is valid through July 10, 2014 which makes this option applicable for many people, especially for the early summer rush. If you are willing to spend a little more money for premium economy, take a look. Usually premium economy is twice the price of regular economy, but this sale makes the pricing much closer to 50% more AND you get a short-haul flight. Totally worth it if you pick normally expensive destinations.
