San Francisco to Seoul $379 or Tokyo $408 China Eastern April departures

Skyteam Alliance member China Eastern has a very low ticket price for Seoul at $379 or Tokyo $409 round trip, but only if you are looking for a two month April to June trip. These low priced flights book in China Eastern economy Q class, a booking code that does not earn miles in any frequent flyer program. I saw some routings where there were Economy B fares for the short haul intra-Asia flight. China Eastern B fares earn 100% flight miles with Delta and most SkyTeam Alliance programs.

Departure dates for these fares are in April with a return in June, so this is only a deal for the long stay traveler.

Delta and United have fares for about $200 more round trip for shorter stays.
