United/ANA San Jose SJC to Vietnam $596 round trip August-March 2017

This low fare United Airlines ticket from San Francisco Bay Area SJC airport to Ho Chi Minh City SGN, Vietnam is ANA flights to Japan and Vietnam. The airport code SGN reflects the city’s former name Saigon. There are tickets in the $596 to $615 range every month for departures from late August to March 2017. Months with most available dates are October and November with 13 and 14 dates each at $596 round trip. I give this fare 4 stars for availability and low fare deal. Mid to upper $500s is about as low as Southeast Asia flights go for most sales, unless you transit through China. This seems like a great deal for travel from San Jose, California on a United ticket flying foreign carriers.
