FYI United, like Air Canada, also runs the 3-4-3 seating on their Boeing 777... meaning you're an inch closer to the person on your left and right in cattle class. ;) Compared to Air China and their preferable 3-3-3 seating (both use Boeing 777's - United will start using a 777 during the time of the deal).

i wonder if filling seats at these prices helps the bottom line at all.

Saw this deal yesterday, I didn't really want to book through a 3rd party (such as budgetair or clickmytrip), if you go directly to United's webpage for the same dates, the flight was only $10 more. Not sure if its worth going through a 3rd party for a $10 savings.

Can you please elaborate on "a bit rough"? I just flew China Southern and they weren't bad even reading some bad reviews.

I've only ever booked through 3rd parties and never had a problem, you?

I honestly don't know why this wasn't more popular deal, but it's gone now.

If you book directly with United you can get a 72 Hour Hold by choosing the the option "Pay at airport ticket office". I completed my purchase today, and still get 24 hour cancellation!!!!!!!

So 96h cancellation? Really good to know!

And you're right about this deal being slept on -- I find RFD sucks like that sometimes. Deals get lost easily. It should be like reddit where top voted threads stay near the top while they're good and then fall off quickly.

Might want to be careful! Lest we forget: United we beat our customers up, when we can't beat our competitors' prices... Lol, flights might be overbooked ;)

AC is beginning to fly YYZ to TPE. That's why the competition and promotions.

Except you get a big pay out at the end of the day... In retrospect I'm okay with that

Pretty much all reviews of Air China are crap. I don't personally know anyone who has taken them who had a good experience. Horrible service, long delays in Beijing (all flights on Air China go through Beijing), poor In flight entertainment and little english.

I guess if your only need is to get from A to B cheaply, then Air China may be your way to go. If you want an enjoyable flight experience then avoid them.

Out of Vancouver, the Chinese airlines are flooding the low end of the searches. It is pretty hard to find a flight to Asia without going through pages of Air China, China Southern, China Eastern and Xiamen Airlines before reaching non-Chinese carriers. As they are likely all government owned, I guess they can move people at a loss.
