West Coast airports to Beijing, Xi’an under $500, even regional airports

As I studied fare deals today from LAX, SFO, SJC, PDX and SEA to Beijing, the itinerary routing of flights with American Airlines via LAX and United Airlines via San Francisco became apparent. These airlines are funneling passengers from airports across the west to their LAX and SFO flights to Beijing and Shanghai, China.

Even more added value to this deal is finding regional airports across the west in places like Fresno, Monterey and Sacramento with United ticket prices around $483 round trip to Beijing and other interior China regional cities like Xi’an. Even Medford, Oregon has United fares at $518 to Xi’an XIY, China with United Airlines.

Why go to Xi’an? One of oldest cities of China, Xi’an is also where you find the Terracotta Army Museum.
