For a decade it was unheard of to see roundtrip fares to Southeast Asia for under $600. That’s changed. I don’t even bother sharing fares to Europe unless they’re under $500… preferably under $400. Still this one is an unusually good fare even by recent sale fare standards.
Fly4Free says Star Alliance carrier ANA has roundtrip fares to Bangkok from $216. This is the same airline that had a $597 roundtrip business class fare to Australia in August.
The Bangkok fare, higher on some dates, is available in January, February and March.
Book via airfare metasearch site Momondo. This is their Italian site, switch the currency to USD dollars to better understand the fares and use a credit card that waives foreign transaction fees if booking on a non-US site.
You should be able to find these fares originating in New York, Houston, San Francisco, Seattle or Los Angeles.

I know many readers want business class sales, it’s a long way to go in coach, but this is an amazing fare – and it won’t last. In fact in case ANA has “seller’s remorse” I’d wait a few days to make sure they don’t back out of honoring the fare before making additional travel plans.
