American is pricing out itineraries from Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) to Hong Kong (HKG) in confirmed business class. Cheaper than the Washington DC fares, and on a true-lie flat product, this is a not to be missed ticket. Usually, the DFW-HKG route is notoriously difficult for systemwide upgrades, so if you’re an Executive Platinum, use a SWU to sit in first.
You can find the fare on multiple dates, and it looks like the fare jumps to the traditional $4,000+ type after September 1, so this looks to be good through the summer.
- The fare appears to only be good on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday departures.
- There is a 1 night minimum stay requirement.
- You can use a systemwide upgrade to confirm into First Class, if available.
I’ve priced out a sample itinerary here, departing Wednesday July 15, returning a week later.
Because this is a mistake fare, we don’t know how long this will last, and AA could pull it at any time, though with the previous China fares, they did allow customers who TICKETED a reservation to hold onto it. Those with held reservations were canceled, so its best to fully book now and think later.
I’ve already booked 3 of these trips, and am looking forward to trying out the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong while I’m there.
Book now, think later…..
…Unless of course you realized that today is April 1 and this was an April Fool’s joke. 🙂
