Via Flyertalk, you can fly from Vancouver, Canada to Beijing, China for ~$531 round-trip in coach.
You can search for the fare on Kayak but you can only book it on Vayama, an online travel agency. Kayak shows fares as low as $506, but when you click through the price goes up to ~$531. I found this price in October 2014, but didn’t check for other dates.
How to Book It
Go to Vayama and search for flights from Vancouver, Canada to Beijing, China in October. I found flights available in October, but didn’t check other months.
You’ll see the $531 ticket on Hainan Airlines (with different connection options) so pick the times that work best for you.
Fill in your details and complete the purchase. I didn’t buy a ticket, but it looks like it would go through.
If you’re looking for a cheap ticket to China you might want to book this soon. I don’t expect this fare to last long.
That said, do NOT book non-refundable hotel or other travel plans until you receive a confirmation WITH an e-ticket number. And do NOT call the airline!
Remember, if you’re not in Vancouver, you could cheaply use points (like British Airways Avios) to get there, especially if you’re on the West Coast.
~$531 for a round-trip ticket from Vancouver to Beijing is a good deal! Remember, you can only book this through the online travel agency Vayama.
