Cant think of a better way to start a vacation in paradise than to start with a 17 hour Shanghai layover.

J/K. I am going to pass even though a great deal.

Thanks for posting though.

How bad is a Shanghai layover? It's not like a layover in Manila or Cairo.

Problem with the PVG layover is that there's nothing near PVG.
It takes forever to get to busy parts of Pudong or Puxi.

Nah not really. Can be downtown in about an hour. 17 hour layover gives you a full day in Shanghai. Def a cool place to check out if you’ve never been.

Actually probably less than that as the airport meglav can get you into downtown underground railway station in 8 min. Another 30 min can already get you at the heart of shanghai - the Bund.

Another consideration is the aircraft type. make sure you get a flat bed but not angled-flat one on the redeye~

Great price!

It looks like you can have another stop in China for the same price (e.g. Kunming or Qingdao).

Edit: even two stops and the best I could see in October (CMB is always a technical stop):
PUS PVG ACX KMG CMB MLE
MLE CMB KMG HFE PVG ICN
