Multiple departure cities on the Pacific Coast and destinations to Southeast Asia are available for March – May. Vancouver has the lowest departure price, but San Francisco and Los Angeles are very close; Thai destinations include Bangkok and the resort town of Phuket as well as Ho Chi Minh City city in Vietnam, with for all 3 below $450. If you are positioning to Thailand, 1-way fares can be found for as little as $150. China Southern is the primary airline providing these flights but, as it is transitioning away from Skyteam, mileage earning is up in the air. All fares include carry-on bags though seat selection is an extra charge.

China Southern transitioned away from *Skyteam*, not Star Alliance.
China Southern is transitioning out of SkyTeam not Star Alliance. As they’re strengthening a relationship with American Airlines, I’m guessing they may move to One World. This makes sense as Air China is Star Alliance and China Eastern is SkyTeam. One World has Cathay Pacific, but HKG isn’t mainland China.
