China Southern Airlines has a major sale going through the weekend. Early birds can score tickets to Asia for as little as $380 roundtrip. While the advertised sale is for travel next fall, many of the same routes have similar unadvertised deals for travel in late February and March.
On its website, China Southern Airlines is advertising a sale for travel between August 30 and October 2, 2019, from Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), and San Francisco (SFO) to locations all over Asia. If this is too far in advance for you to book a trip, check flights on these routes (and others) in late February and March and you may find similar prices.
The following prices are what is advertised on the China Southern website for travel next fall. Actual prices may vary slightly depending on travel dates and booking site—and you may even find lower fares on some routes for winter travel.
Tickets must be booked by November 11, 2018.
A sample of fares include:
There are many more routes discounted throughout Asia. Check any route on China Southern for travel in late February/early March or late August through early October and you are likely to find a good price.
Some routes may require an overnight layover in a connecting city in China, which would most likely be the main hub in Guangzhou (CAN). If this is the case, think of it as a 2-for-1 opportunity, because China Southern offers free accommodation for layovers ranging from 8 to 48 hours.
As an example booking, I found seats departing Los Angeles LAX on Friday, August 30, returning from Bangkok BKK on Sunday, September 8, for $380 roundtrip. Two free checked bags included!
