Hainan HKG-JFK 900 USD

https://www.google.com/flights/?gl=&...sc=b;a=HU;eo=e

Anyone able to get this to book? I think it might be a google flights error, but thought i'd ask.

Not able to replicate on ITA or HU site, assuming some kind of GF error like you said. Hope we're wrong though

There were others that can be viewed on google and ITA, such as PEK-LAS, PEK-SEA, but I wasn't able to find a site to book with the powertool. I'm still quite new to the powertool so maybe someone is better on this.

Price was noted on GF but would not book on click-through to Orbitz or Hainan.

Price gone now......

Hi! I've done some research and entering it in ITA, and then using power tools to get to Kayak (based on 4 segments), I was eventually able to get the AC3MECN code to price in Orbitz for 575$. The problem is that even though Orbitz shows the "right" booking classes (A / H), they just call the whole booking Economy.. so I wouldn't know what would end up happening to your booking..

Looking at the fare classes mile earning rates it does very much seem like it books into premium cabin. And yes, the fare is still there

"A" does appear to be first/business class...

same with the powertool link to Priceline on PEK-LAS. It has the same price but shows as economy.

Oh wow... How did you get that to price. I tried a 4 segment booking and ran into trouble. Any chance you could post a link?

My bad... A looks to be economy... A used to be first class but I guess Hainan doenst have first class anymore causing the confusion.

Hainan A fare is a discounted economy based on this point earning chart.

Hey, btw I have always been curious where you see the cabin rather than booking class in GDS except for the fare listing?

Do you know if Worldspan shows cabin for HU A and P as business or first or it is just the web interface used by ITA Matrix, Google flights and OTAs that has to be manually updated?

I can't post URLs yet as I need to have at least 5 posts ;P As the other people figured out, it's just economy anyways but if you're still interested, just PM me..
