Nice! Thanks.

Is wheretocredit.com correct in saying this credits 450% to AS? I.e. about 54k rdm? If so, the miles earned are worth about about 40% of the fare.

Some other destinations are possible. Tried to figure out MEX with the Transcon on AA. Should be worth for 920 TP.

hm
so routing to PEK like this
LHR-PEK-HKG-LHR
or
LHR-HKG-PEK-LHR
and you can get free 72h visa (it should be extended to 144h in PEK by the end of 2017)

PIKnic Sep 1, 17 9:09 am

EDI-LHR-HKG-PEK or reverse ?
 
For this route we are looking to stay in HKG for 10 days and use PEK to transit. Is there any benefit as to which way we go ?
I thought it might be better to fly straight back on A380 and go via PEK !

If you fly London-Hong Kong-Beijing-London, you cannot connect in Beijing same day because the first Cathay Dragon flight from Hong Kong arrives to Beijing late so that it does not qualify MCT.

But if you fly London-Beijing-Hong Kong-London, you can connect in Beijing same day.

zebes Sep 1, 17 9:53 am

If crediting to AS, be wary, as you might not get credit for the HKG-PEK route on Cathay Dragon.

Just FYI, China now offers 10-year tourist visas (IIRC for about the same a one-year visa used to cost). Or at least they do for US citizens, though I don't see why UK citizens wouldn't also be included.

Great fare, OP! LHR-SFO rt under $3k.

Rowyourboat Sep 1, 17 10:55 am

Looks like there's a pretty broad sale. If you sign-in to BA EC and have your location as UK, there's a lot of cheap F fares.

Quick glance for NA:
ATL from 1969 gbp
BOS from 1898 gbp
LAS from 2029 gbp
NYC from 1853 gbp
YYZ from 1696 gbp

All ex-LON. I didn't check the dates but this seems to come up annually. LON-SFO gets you ~60K RDM on Alaska w/ MVP 75K bonus, or around 45K w/o it.

Certain nationalities are eligible for transit in China without visa aka TWOV. In PEK, you are allowed up to 72 hours as long as your itinerary takes you to a "third country". HKG is treated as a separate country. In this case, you can do LHR-HKG-PEK-LHR or LHR-PEK-HKG-LHR, but not LHR-PEK-HKG-PEK-LHR without a visa.
