A few dates available for $400 in October/November, lots of dates at $416. (This is return cost... sorry, should have put that in title!)

Most miles routed IAH-SLC-SEA-HKG return.

Enjoy!

What does it get for EQMs on AS?

Also seeing this with similar pricing from SFO.

Come on UA, match this! Available on UA for a bit more ~$535-560, which by itself is a really good deal.

So UA isn't completely matching, but a couple sample dates I've seen are now ~$490 IAH-HKG, so they've come down ~$50 in the past few hrs. Effing nuts. I'm thinking of booking one to requal for Silver and go have dinner in HKG. IMO well worth the extra $100 over DL because it's a single connection vs double connect on DL and shorter travel time. Many of the DL flights have few hour long connections in SEA.

How do the delta coded, Alaska operated flights credit to Alaska?

Looks like the flights don't credit since they're in the 9000 range.

Any insights?

Thanks for this. Booked one. Never been to HKG so will be fun and I had $200 in credits so net cost for my dates $153! ^:-:

I am in for less that 1 CPM! (will have to position but have FlexPerks so all good)

Crazy that Delta dropped all of these at once. Definitely some kind of attack or something is going on.

It's a shame that all the SEA routings require an overnight somewhere on the outbound.
