Cathay Pacific is having an amazing Black Friday sale where you can save up to 70% off flights to Asia. Deals are available for departures from Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC and Seattle. The sale prices will be available starting at midnight on 11/27/19.
Example: Flights from Los Angeles to Bangkok are $555 in economy or $1,255 in premium economy. This is a terrific value even before you take into account the mileage benefit. When you take into account the mileage earning potential it’s really outstanding.
The roundtrip distance from LAX-HKG-BKK is 16,618 miles. If you opt for the Premium Economy flight and credit your miles to American Airlines you’ll earn 100% base miles, 1.5 elite qualifying miles (“EQMs”) and .20 elite qualifying dollars (“EQD”) per mile flown. That’s 24,927 EQMs, $3,324 EQDs and 16,618 redeemable miles (“RDMs”). That’s almost enough to qualify for Gold status in a single trip. If you’re Platinum on American you can earn 1.8 RDMs per mile flown, which brings it up to 29,912 miles.
Flights to a number of destinations in Asia and India are available. You can check out Cathay’s Black Friday landing page here. A limited inventory is available at these special prices so I recommend booking ASAP.
