Low prices to China this year are pretty much standard these days, but sometimes we get even better deals. Several airports on the west coast have solid pricing throughout the fall on flights to the “Pearl of the Orient”, including Thanksgiving travel. These prices are from United and her Star Alliance partners like Air Canada , ANA, and Asiana. Probably the best “deal” are the L.A. flights, which are about $100 – $300 cheaper than normal. Some slightly better prices are available, but they generally include long layovers while only saving a few dollars. Conversely, on some routes, for just a few dollars more you can often cut layovers down by 2 or more hours.

  • San Francisco from $449 (nonstop outbound)

These are main cabin economy fares, which are still standard on trans-Pacific routes. That means seat selection and 2 checked bags are included, perfect for family vacations. The absolute lowest prices are available through United directly from Google Flights, however some dates fail to show once you click through. The slightly ($4 – $7) higher prices show on Orbitz on those dates.  Most of these fares should be available for booking for awhile, though the L.A. flights could start creeping up again shortly, so book now if necessary.
