Fly To Asia For Next To Nothing
Thursday, February 5, 2009
Well, maybe not nothing, but there are some insane deals right now for flights across the Pacific.
I don’t know what it is with American lately, but they’ve been practically giving away seats this winter (remember last week’s deals to South America?). Good news for travelers, perhaps bad news for the company.
They’re offering flights from the East Coast to Shanghai for $714 (pre-taxes) and flights to Tokyo for under $850 (guess which country has the more favorable exchange rate?).
Ever wonder what Quantas stood for (Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited)? Ever wanted to shower mid-flight on your way from L.A./San Fran to Sydney? Well, Quantas has deals for under $800 for the above-route, however showers are reserved for first-class passengers only who fly on one of Quantas’ A380s (and I guarantee the price will be well over $800).
