DL ORD-ATL-HKG $900 18000+ miles ~ 5 CPM

Late August availability with 1 night turns

Flexible routing via Delta hubs (DTW, ATL, JFK) to push the CPM down a bit more

Search on Google Flights and book directly through DL site. Could not replicate on ITA.

DL doesn't fly ATL-HKG nonstop. I assume this routes through SEA. Avoid direct flights for more miles.

Tinkering with this and not seeing the $900 range on DL. Near $1000 yes at 5-ish CPM range:

Aug 25-27 prices out at $900.70 on Delta.com with tons of flights to choose from. It would be a painful couple of days in coach but the returns are pretty sweet; over 35K RDM's (for PM) and over 17K MQM's depending on the route you take.

Booked this about a month ago, but from MDW for $300-ish after $600 voucher. I fly DTW-MDW-ATL-NRT-HKG-NRT-MSP-DTW-MDW-DTW.

DL TPAC routing via JFK always yield the highest MQM and SM.

HOWEVER:
  • The NRT JFK is the first flight US bound from NRT, any hiccup on the Asia to NRT segment and you get some crazy re-route.
  • From NRT to US, JFK is the worse for US entry in terms of setup, number of passengers needed to be processed.
My choice of US port of entry base on extended family and friends' feedback is MSP, DTW or SEA, ATL and lastly JFK.
