United Airlines has San Francisco to Hong Kong at $488 round trip with nonstop flights on its website. But the price is as low as $419 round trip when you search Momondo.com and book through GoTravel123, an OTA site listing flights with major US carrier and unspecified airline, which turns out to be a one-stop via LAX on American Airlines, based on the OTA $419 ticket flight times.
American Airlines has Los Angeles to Hong Kong at $502 round trip on its own website. But the price is $440 round trip when you search Momondo.com and book through OTA site GoTravel123.com with a routing via Dallas DFW on the outbound and nonstop HKG-LAX on AA inbound.
There have been numerous fare deals to Asia in past week. On Loyalty Traveler I have had the practice of showing fare prices seen through the airline’s own websites. If you want to find lower deals, checking Copenhagen-based meta-search engine Momondo.com is a powerful way to find lower ticket prices with an online travel agency (OTA) for the same major US airline and often the same flights at a deep discount.
Either booking option $419 on GoTravel123.com for an unspecified airline (American) or $502 on united.com/aa.com are good deals from LAX/SFO on these Hong Kong routes.

While the airline is unspecified in this GoTravel123 ticket display, checking the flight times for DFW-HKG and HKG-LAX nonstop reveals quickly these are American Airlines flights.
Or you can book LAX-HKG through aa.com for $502 round trip.
