It’s that time of year again when people are looking to do their mileage run to build up their status for the following year. We did this last year by flying to Japan and South Korea on the Thanksgiving weekend. When you are doing something like this, you want to look for long flights, preferably to Asia or Africa with low airfares. Basically getting the most miles for your money.
We’ve been keeping an eye out for cheap tickets. Most airlines usually start slashing their prices to Asia around the Fall. Today while browsing the usual websites, we saw American Airline tickets to HK from NYC dropped to around $839 including tax, traveling in the month of September and October. It was only yesterday the price was $1,000.
Regardless if you’re looking to rack up some miles or just looking for a regular old vacation, this is a great price for a round trip ticket to the other side of the world. I don’t know how long these prices will last, so if you are craving mantis shrimp or itching to get your hands on some cheap electronics, make sure you book the flight soon.
