Transpacific Business Class deals are usually rare throughout the year however, I am currently seeing some great premium fares out of select Asian cities to the US throughout the year.
Given that the fares from Asia to the US normally are very high, fares less than $3,500 are the lowest I could find especially on airlines that belong to major alliances.
Here are some of the routes and prices between Asia to the US.
ANA & United Transpacific Deals:
Asiana Airlines Transpacific Deals:
EVA Air Transpacific Deals:
Japan Airlines Transpacific Deals:
China Airlines Transpacific Deals:
The terms and conditions of the carriage are similar with all airlines since the above flights mostly codeshares with each other:
- RESERVATION AND TICKETING: RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL SECTORS. TICKETING MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN 3 DAYS AFTER RESERVATIONS ARE MADE
- MAXIMUM STAY: TRAVEL FROM LAST STOPOVER MUST COMMENCE NO LATER THAN 6 MONTHS AFTER DEPARTURE FROM FARE ORIGIN
- MINIMUM STAY: N/A
- STOPOVERS: Stopovers are permitted
- CANCELLATIONS: PERMITTED WITH A FEE
- CHANGES: PERMITTED WITH A FEE
Most of the flights are codeshared and can be booked directly through the airline’s website – which I highly recommend in case of ticket changes, flights on Asiana can be booked through third-party online travel agencies.
Earning Miles From Each Airline
With each respective Business Class fare class, you will be eligible to earn between 70% to 150% of the miles flown (Based on base tier) of each frequent flyer program. Since these fares are one of the restrictive Business Class fares, you will need to check with each program which you want to credit the miles.
- United/ANA: P Class
- EVA Air: D Class
- China Airlines: D Class
- Japan Airlines: R Class (Flights marketed by American Airlines)
- Asiana Airlines: Z Class
The fares are available throughout the year however, tickets can sell out quickly so if you have travel plans, it is best to check the dates and purchase before the prices increase.
