Hong Kong Airlines has one of the most amazing business class fares I’ve seen in a long time. You can fly to Asia for less than $600 roundtrip. That’s a good price for coach and this is for business.
In fact you can fly Los Angeles – Shanghai between September and March for as little as $560 roundtrip in business class using Hong Kong Airlines’ daily service onboard a new Airbus A350. And Shanghai isn’t the only destination.
Let’s take a look at Los Angeles – Shanghai. You can find availability with Google Flights and book on the Hong Kong Airlines website or with Expedia.
Hong Kong Airlines is the number two carrier in Hong Kong. They’ve been rapidly expanding to North America. Hong Kong Airlines is owned by HNA Group, parent of Hainan Airlines which has been selling stakes in travel businesses around the world.

Rather than treating this as a mistake fare I choose to believe they’re looking to generate interest in and cash from their Los Angeles service. US airlines, when they struggled a decade ago, would find themselves running big sales to raise immediate cash too.
You won’t credit miles from this fare to a US frequent flyer program, but you can top off a Fortune Wings Club account — after earning miles from these flights — with points transfers from Wyndham.
