As the title states SIN-LAX or SFO via HKG in PE. Looks like it's available on both GF and CX's website starting in August. HKG is supposed to open to transit pax starting June 1 but we'll see. SQ similiar price and non-stop. I do like the A350 CX uses to SFO as the seats are newer and I could usually get the seat I like.

If you credit to AS, CX PE comes with a 10% COS bonus, SQ does not. I have only flown SQ J so I can't comment on their PE, CX PE is OK. I flew CX PE SIN-HKG-LAX & JFK-HKG-CPT return in January. I was supposed to fly the return LAX-HKG-SIN in early February but had to cancel.

Once transit is possible in HKG and how that looks is anybody'sguess, it is no guarantee that borders will be open in SIN. When they do open, I anticipate it will be only to certain areas initially. COVID-19 hotspots could continue to be barred just as the US has closed it's borders to Brazil.

For the CX fares, beware that E class is not upgradeable using Asia Miles. Only R and W classes are.

Thanks, I didn't see that update. Perhaps I will give SQ a chance when it is possible to fly. CX PE isn't fantastic, I preferred my AA PE SCL-DFW-ICN with a DFW-PHX-DFW side trip in MCE and a 3 moth stopover for a little over $800.

EDIT: If you credited the CX itinerary to AA, two round trips would qualify for platinum Pro, three, Executive Platinum with the lowered thresholds.

A lot of routes airlines are publishing have the caveat "pending government approval." In essence they are looking for cash now and will deal with the borders later. It isn't any different with cruise lines selling cruises that may not sail. The Alaska Cruise Season if offically dead as of two days ago but they actively sold sailings in anticipation that the Canadian ban on crise ships in Canadian waters would be lifted on July 1st. That didn't happen, in fact, more restrictive measures were put in place and extended to at least October 31st.

My FF program is AS and while these fares are attractive, I won't be booking anything until there is a very high likelihood that the flight will get me to my destination. Otherwise, IMHO, it is just a loan for a lottery ticket, particularly for September departures.

Right! I'm not spending any money on airline tickets this year, but may use miles for an award back to the US, hopefully in September, but if the US doesn't get their act together soon, that may not be possible.

Pretty good fares, do you know which class these book into? I'm looking at this from a mileage-upgrade perspective (those are long flights, even in Y+). Anybody who can share some info? I have enough miles in a variety of *A programmes. Thanks!
