China Southern San Francisco to New Delhi $571 round trip April-May

The fact that California to India is under $600 round trip in 2016 to fly half way around the world and back simply amazes me.

The fare was even lower three weeks ago when I wrote about this SkyTeam Alliance member China Southern Airlines deal on February 27. Loyalty Traveler – China Southern $568 San Francisco to New Delhi, India round trip.

The San Francisco Bay Area of California has one of the largest Indian expat communities in the USA. I hope this deal reaches some of you who want to Google Flights your way from Silicon Valley to the homeland on a low fare deal.

Be aware that Google Flights is not easy to search for these fares. Initial fares shown are higher than final fare. This is is a fare you need to play with dates and see what the final fare prices out to be on Google Flights.

Then, after selecting May 3 with the $765 round trip fare, Google Flights fare calendar shows $595 round trip for a return on six other dates in May, including May 16.

Then that May 3-16 $595 round trip fare actually prices at $571.33 on Priceline.com.

Quite a low fare from San Francisco SFO to New Delhi, India, DEL. The fare for LAX-DEL is pricing in the mid-$700s.
