honkongairlines.com has been raising prices slowly last an hour, by a couple of hundreds of $ at a time. When I was about to buy, the site showed error message. Last half an hour, it got extremely slow and giving more and more error messages. bmorewards and expedia4TD both showing Philippine Airlines for same dates for $3K. Then I went to book on Priceline, I was able to book LAX-DPS 2/13-3/4 for USD 663. I got a ticket # and a reservation code, but hongkonairlines.com says their system is busy. At least for the same dates, Priceline still says the fare is available.

Thanks OP, and fingers crossed!

Yeah - I don't get the slow ramp-up in fares that I was seeing.

Hong Kong Airlines quotes me $653, but website is slow and difficult.
Expedia did the trick for $711 and I need those days (Saturday til Sunday) to maximize vacation time (only 5 working days)

Just was able to book a LAX-PVG for $539. Cancelled my Expedia reservation and replaced with direct booking with HX. It was cheaper

If you are trying to make a booking still, make a frequent flyer account and sign in to the HX website. Search for your flights and carry through as far as you can. When it fails to complete the reservation go to your profile and bookings. Youll see the unpaid order on hold and you should be able to complete the charge. Took a while but it did ticket.

  • HX: We disagree; it was an error.
  • DOT: Sorry, we think it was legitimate.
  • HX: But look! Some people on an internet forum called it an error!
  • DOT: <gasps> Well I'll be! Since everything on the internet must be true, and since the term "error fare" is so well defined, that settles it; you're off the hook.
Whether the fare will be honored or not, I have no idea, but I'm entirely confident that comments made on this board will play no role whatsoever in that decision.
i agree. HX just needs to explain to DOT exactly how the mistake occurred and how they will prevent it going forward. they won't be showing any blogs or FT posts as evidence.

I managed to get flights for a trip to SGN in February for $620 booked via Expedia. Unfortunately I rushed through the booked and forgot to select seats.
Is there a way to select seats after booking? I can't seem to find one on the HK Airlines website.
