Earlier this month, we shared a deal for those traveling from the US to Southeast Asia on Qatar Airways Business Class. However, flying from the US and transferring through the Middle East to Asia takes much longer. There are a couple of nice deals flying Trans-Pacific from the US to Asia on Air China and China Southern.

China Southern A350 Business Class

Credit This Deal

This deal books into R fare class on Air China’s long-haul flights and I fare class on China Southern. Air China is a member of Star Alliance, so this ticket can be credited to all Star Alliance airlines.

Air China R Fare Class

China Southern just left SkyTeam earlier so they do not currently belong to any world alliance. However, they do have a partnership with American Airlines.

Bottom Line

This is a great deal for travellers planning to visit Asia. There is plenty of availability until next year and the distance is good for mileage accruals. Although these two airlines do not offer the best Business Class products in the world, you would still find it quite comfortable.
