CX - Premium Economy - JFK/ORD - BKK/TPE/SIN/SGN/MNL/CRK/CEB ~ $1415 r/t

Good Y+ Fares to South East Asia from the US on Cathay Pacific. Most of these are bookable out of JFK. ORD is only for SIN + MNL.

Fare is valid for flights departing Mid August - Early December.
Fare Basis: ELXSPCL
Booking Code: E
Minimum Stay: 0 days
Maximum Stay: 10 days to some cities 30 days to most cities

Approx earnings if credited to AA (JFK-BKK):
EQM: 27363
EQD: 3648
RDM: 18242

You can get these to price out slightly cheaper ($20-$30) via Momondo. If you book directly with CX there is greater flight availability.

Managed to drop JFK-SGN another $87 ($1352 v. $1439 on Google flights) by using the CX site paired with a 1-night hotel.

If you are booking a CX Holiday (Flight+Hotel), the main difference vs fare only is usually change/cancel fees. CX Holiday fees can be steep compared to fare only.

CX PE Review
Very nice post! If this fare was available two months ago I would have got this instead of the UA fare or even the stupid AA PE fare. This fare beats AA PE any day of the week.

The Flight Deal found a few west coast cities but might as well maximize that EQM/EQD

Great prices. Tried to add a 3-day stopover in HKG and only resulted in slight increase. Thanks OP!

Works to CNX too.

I was able to put JFK-CNX on hold for 72 hours. $1507. Mid October for 5 days.

HKG-CNX is in Y (fare code H) on Dragon Air

Should Earn
EQM: 25216
EQD: 3528
RDM: 17644

With only a $100 cancellation fee I feel comfortable booking this as a solid MR, if a business class mistake fare opens up I can swallow canceling for $100

This is a great fare. Very similar pricing to the Black Friday sale last year. Ive already got my travel planned for the rest of the year (to requalify for EXP), but Id definitely jump on this otherwise.
