Or just 98,000 credit card points, with some cards…
When you’re facing a at least 14 hours in the air each way, it’s natural to want a business class seat. After all, business class seats are more like fully flat beds which double as a seat, than they are the seats you’d imagine. As highlighted by the endlessly valuable Flyertalk Premium Fares forum, there’s a heck of a deal for West Coast USA to Beijing in business class, starting at just $1470 round trip to Beijing. That’s like… 50% off or better.
China Eastern is a SkyTeam airline with a very solid business class experience. For $1450 you can trade premium economy or economy for a fully flat bed with direct aisle access. If you buy business class tickets for the food, we’ve got a great used car to sell you today as well. The very best deals are available from Los Angeles, but other solid deals are also available from Vancouver and San Francisco. You may also find deals from China Southern and Xiamen, as airlines join the fun.
These deals are available on select dates in late August, September and early October. We found the easiest availability searching for Tuesday departures, with a one week stay. We’ve made easy to use Google Flights links, which take you directly to the very best deals.
28 hours in round trip in a bed is a whole lot more appealing way to see China than in an economy seat. If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve, which can give you up to 1.5 cents per point of value when you use points to buy cash tickets, you could book one of these tickets for just 98,000 Chase points round trip, if the ticket is available through Chase Travel. Unlike most of the ways for using points, you’d still earn elite status points and redeemable miles! This could be brilliant for a Delta, Korean or KLM flyer. Here are the best round trip business class deals to China, like: $1468 Los Angeles to Beijing on China Eastern, $1880 from Vancouver to Shanghai on China Southern and $2245 from Las Vegas on United or American.
