Toronto > Shanghai/Beijing/Hong Kong, RT $719-793 [Oct-May 2015]

Deal Link:
Price:
$719.46
For those that missed the United/Air Canada sale last week, Delta keep dropping fares to China from cities across Canada.
Shanghai fares can be had for <$550 from west coast cities - see thread: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/delta-yv ... n-1569529/

Still can't match the last minute <$600 fares to Hong Kong from Toronto last month, but not everyone can travel on a dime.

Scattered departure dates from now until April 2015.

Sample Itinerary (Shanghai): $719

Image

Sample Itinerary (Beijing): $777

Image

Sample Itinerary (Hong Kong): $793

Image

V/K Class - 100% miles on Alaska MP (for travels until Dec 31 2014, unknown in 2015).

If this was a non stop flight Id say it was hot. I guess 17h and 16h to beijing is ok but 26 to 21h to HK is hell. I tried this before and thought i could do it, but im never doing these 20+ hrs again. Not worth the money you paid. I havent tried Delta before either. Only trust AC and Cathay for my trips to china

Sure you can do it you just need to plan and prepare properly. My trip to Thailand had two stopovers and was like 24-26 hours. How'd I do it you ask:
1) Bring various form of entertainment ie books, magazines, video players, etc., and the main thing,
2) Use sleeping pills. I flew Economy plus from Japan to Thailand. It was 8 hours, but thanks to a sleeping pill, I was out for like 6 hours of that flight.

By the time I arrived, I was so refreshed and ready to hit the town. I applied the same tactic returning, and I experienced minimal jet lag.

Ill pass on that. If you have to take sleeping pills for your flight, maybe you shouldnt be taking it.

I don't have to. But if I want to kill several boring hours by sleeping nicely, causing me to be refreshed and energetic when I get up, then it is very worthwhile.

I missed out on this. Looking to purchase. According to trends does anybody think the price will go down again anytime soon?

I returned from Seoul/Taiwan/Hong Kong with our $500 tickets to Seoul yesterday. I used points to travel from Seoul to HK and Taiwan.

When we got to Pearson for our outbound flight, we was told that our first leg to Detroit was delayed and we might not make it on time for out second leg to Seoul. Much to their credit, Delta booked us on AC to Detroit and we made our connection with minutes to spare. Of course, our luggages never made it. We left on the following day from Seoul to HK and Delta shipped our luggages from Seoul to our HK hotel a day later.

We have flown on AC, Cathay, United, American and now Delta to Asia. I would rate Delta's service to be on par with AC and United. Service on Cathay is the best, however, our last 2 flights with them within Asia were delayed for 2 hours and 3 hours respectively. I guess even they have their problems these days.

On our return flight through Detroit, you are no longer required to get your checked luggages and rechecked them after custom. There is also a security check right after custom so you no longer have to go outside and go through custom again. It makes going through the US a bit more easier these days.

Back on topic, we have done these 2 stoppers to HK once on American. It was tough but a $2000 for a family of four was nothing to sneeze at.

Delta's been cutting prices pretty aggressively to China in the past month or so. Most likely due to their expansion at Seattle and the increased capacity.
When are you travelling? If you're not flying during high season and can be flexible with dates, you might see cheaper Delta fares again.
