US to HKG business class

The best deal I've found for a US trip to HKG on business class is Cathay's All Asia Pass ($2000 R/T from NYC or LAX). Are there any other comparable deals? Thanks.

Korean Air (i know, it isnt Cathay) is cheaper. (R/T $1500-$1600 from LAX). Go to http://www.tiss.com

Remember, the CP All-Asia pass isn't $2000 r/t, it's $999 plus $1000 each way to upgrade transpacific, or $2999.

Don't forget that you do not earn miles on the All Asia Pass.

Yes, I just read the documentation closely, and it is $3000 for business class r/t. Still, the cheapest I had found before this was $4500, so it's still significantly better. I'll live without the ff miles for $1500.

I tried Korean Air, and their prices were also about $4500+. Have I missed something? Are there special deals and secrets I need to know? That's why I posted here, so smarter people could help me out. Thanks!

Extension of stay is $11 per night. Confirmed transpacific upgrade (you will earn mileage bonuses) to Thai Royal Executive Class -- $550 one-way, $ 1100 round-trip.

$ 1500 (korean) is consolidated fare.
