UA ORD-HKG $505.26 (3.2 cpm)

Just scored a nice quickie getaway to Hong Kong beginning of March on the super cheap. It seems there is lots of availability Feb/Mar and some into April. It shows up for fast turnarounds and longer stays.

love those HKG excursions.

if one routes via middle pacific, its a 2.65 cpm at $492. If you find R>1 space of ORD-HKG, then it may become a really cool MR in style. cannot share details here. PM me.

example:

PS. R>1 for 2/23 departure. I would've been all over this deal if I was short on PQMs

Very nice. Looks like I can get something around 3.7 cpm if I do it out of SAN. Unfortunately it would start on 2/14 and my SO would kill me

the pacific route is only on the non-stop gum-hnl, not the island hopper

GPUs from 1K cant be used on K fares. If you're doing mileage upgrades, there's a big co-pay.

not sure why you're asking people to PM you if 1. you're not going to share info when PM'ed and 2. be dodgy when people respond to your posts
