Pretty good cathay fare from yvr red eye out and red eye back

Mini causeway bay hotel is 39 cad a night
flight examples are on cheapoair.com nov 27 departure and return dec 3rd 2019

This is not a mileage run...

Perhaps a good economy fare, but not mileage run


Cathay has good mileage run this until tomorrow.

yeah at 685 CAD (515 USD) this is not a mileage run, best in the good economy fares thread

I do MR's to HKG all the time and just booked one on UA for less than this leaving out of my home in YEG, in fact I just booked one for 592 CAD may 3-6

I searched the dates and It came back I just checked my same dates and now at 921CAD, must have went up, perhaps was related to the AC black friday economy sale, I have 2 segments on AC (yeg-yyc,yvr-yeg) perhaps thats why

I hear ya. I actually don't care about award miles as well. I'm also trying to get MM, but with DL.

I think K-fare is 50% with UA?
