does it include taxes?

i'm travelling to a few countries and my final destination before heading back would be thailand.
tickets from toronto to beijing are $670, so i would go from thailand to beijing and back or
drive or bus to montreal - park there - fly to hk and so i would go from thailand to hk and back and take advantage of the 499 price?

how much are flights between thailand and hk or beijing? and is it worth bussing/driving+parking in montreal?

FYI, Air China is part of Star Alliance so you can collect Aeroplan for Air China flights.

Both Air Canada and Air China use Boeing 777 for their nonstop YVR - PEK flight. The Air China planes have 32" seat pitch and 18" width. Air Canada flies with 31" seat pitch and 17" width. The net effect is that on a plane of the same size, Air Canada fits a 10th seat in each row for cattle class.

My experience with Air China on this leg (PEK - YVR only) in 2015 was great. But that's because I got "bumped" to business class at check-in when they ran out of seats in economy (they even tried to offer me a seat on an earlier Air Canada flight!). I'd post pictures of the food like I have for past China Eastern threads, but it wouldn't be comparable since it was business class.

Yes to taxes.

It makes more sense to fly out of YYZ if you live here, unless you have all the time in the world to travel to Montreal (and the bus to Montreal costs money too anyway!).

Flights between HK and Thailand are very cheap. Try skyscanner.ca and play around with the airports you're looking at. Note that you will need to check the cost of check-in luggage for the HKG-BKK flight.

Bangkok to Beijing direct doesn't seem to easy. If you want to get from Bangkok to Beijing, you might have to fly Air Asia to KL first. There are plenty of flights from Bangkok to Hong Kong though.

There also seems to be a direct flight between Phuket and Beijing on Nok Air - might be worth looking into if you don't mind ending your Thai vacation in the south.

When I select Montreal to Tokyo the lowest price I get without taxes is 941. What am I doing wrong? (for the right dates to boot)

Edit : Oh I see, the deal is only active on saturday and sunday
