United Airlines, Air Canada and Air China have fares from $532 to $636 round trip from many USA airports to several cities in China. Here is what I have found and I am sure there are many more USA departure cities with these low fares. Earlier today I posted on several cities in Southeast Asia priced in the $500s round trip from New York JFK and Newark EWR including Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila and Ho Chi Minh City.

Many of you are probably bummed to see there was a mistake fare on an obscure OTA site at $270 round trip from PDX and SEA to China for a couple hours this morning, but at least you know these low fares in the $500s will be honored with purchases made on the airline’s own websites.

Last night I posted on American, Delta and United nonstop flights LAX to Tokyo NRT/HND for $588 round trip on nonstop flights. Looks like the alliance fare war theater has shifted to Asia for this weekend.
