Looks like from my market (STL) both OW and ST have matched. Lots of great flexible routings that allow return via HKG or TYO so possible to avoid the visa.
What dates are you finding the ones that have routings through HKG or TYO?
$454 March 13
Thank you so much. I didn’t know it was a multi-city thing. Great deal.
Or thru HKG
Anything from ORD?
