Hi

Does anyone know when the flights from NY to Beijing go on sale? Or the China air Airlines because that is the one that goes direct from NY to Beijing.

The prices went up like crazy and I am thinking to go in August. They shouldn't be $1600 pp. That is insane!!!

Must it be a direct flight or are you willing to make changes?
It can be done a lot cheaper.

I really prefer direct flights. First I saw them at $1100 and now it's ridiculous, it went up to $1600. Even if I fly direct I know that I am missing two days in traveling and I know if I connect I will probably lose more time.

OK.
It's a long shot then, but going via the UK you could do it with 2 changes. One in London and another in Kuala Lumpur.
Still, if you prefer direct, then it doesn't look like there are any real cheap ways of doing it.

Cheapest departure dates are 8/23, 8/24 and 8/26 on Korean Air via Seoul - $849. roundtrip - Korean is very good (quite a bit better than China Air or Air China)

I looked at your selection on Korean Air's website.

Nothing as cheap as that. The best price is $981 + card fee. Actually over $1,000

Where can you see $849?
