Cathay Pacific sale to Hong Kong

Fares from Washington DC:

    To celebrate their new afternoon nonstops between San Francisco and Hong Kong, Cathay is offering the best fares on the route for travel between October 18 and November 30, 2007 and for sale until September 30.

    You'll pay about $808 RT including taxes. But this fare is only available on Cathay's site and nowhere else. For example, leaving October 18 and returning a week later, we were easily able to find the seats at the advertised fare. But on, same flights and dates, the lowest connecting fare we found was $893 RT on China, and Cathay's nonstop was about $1000 RT with taxes.
