Loyalty Traveler – Airfare Deal EWR–SGN Vietnam $547 United (April 4, 2015).
After seeing a second Asia route from New York Newark EWR-TPE deal from AirfareWatchDog.com today, I checked to see how many cities in Asia are on sale? Those were the only two places I saw in the low $500s for fall 2015 travel. Hong Kong, Jakarta, Manila and Singapore were still in $700s. This is a good low fare all the way to Asia for a bit over $500 round trip. Delta is still priced around $790 to $850 on this route. Watch for other airlines matching.

Watch out for short transit times. Even though you can fly EWR-SFO-TPE on $544 fare, the fare is $200 higher to book the direct SFO-TPE on United.com.
