Here’s another fantastic deal from the US to Hong Kong!

The Flight Deal reports you can fly from Chicago to Hong Kong (via Beijing, China, on the return) for only ~$497 round-trip in coach on United Airlines.

This is NOT a mistake fare.  But because it’s such a good price it will NOT last.

Emily and I really enjoyed our trip to Hong Kong in 2013.  There are so many great things to do (and eat!).

How to Book

Link:   The Flight Deal

Link:   ITA Matrix

Link:   Google Flights

I used ITA Matrix and Google Flights to search for seats.  There are limited dates available, and you must fly out by April 30, 2015.

Book at least 3 days prior to departure.  Here’s a Google Flights link with the cities already entered (just change the dates until you find a trip that works for you!).

Once you’ve selected your fare, click “Book With United” to buy your ticket on the United Airlines website.

Search for This Fare on Google Flights, Then Book Directly With United Airlines

I was able to easily find the fare on the United Airlines website.

Note:  The return trip is via Beijing, China (but the stopover is only a few hours).

This fare will not last!  Remember, you can cancel your flight within 24 hours if you change your mind.

It’s $697 now. Still good but not ~$500.

Too bad the round trip will only generate 2,000 mileage plus miles. Or if you are a premier 1k it’ll generate a whopping 5,500 miles. don’t book just to earn miles or status.. Hong Kong is a great city to visit..
