FARE ALERT: Business Class to Several Asian Destinations From $1954 Roundtrip

Hainan Airlines is offering business class from Chicago to several Asian destinations from $1954. Here’s Chicago – Hong Kong:

The flights between Beijing and Hong Kong are on Hong Kong Airlines:

These are $750 fares in each direction with a $300 fuel surcharge.

Hainan’s Boeing 787 is six-across in business class (like United, whereas American in contrast is four-across).

You aren’t just limited to Hong Kong, for instance you can fly to Bangkok for $100 more:

Or to Tokyo for $2014 roundtrip:

Key things to know about this fare:

  • Outbound travel is permitted through April 30
  • 2 free stopovers permitted, additional stopovers allowed at $100 each
  • Refunds available for $400
  • $250 change fee

Hainan Airlines has been a partner of Alaska Airlines since summer 2015, and I fares earn 100% base and 100% bonus miles when credited to Mileage Plan.

At these prices you don’t have to self-upgrade. Bear in mind though that Hainan Airlines chooses some pretty hinky hotels for overnights during irregular operations.
