Two days ago I wrote about a tremendous deal for round trip flights to Asia from Los Angeles. Prices started at just $531 and there were a few sub $600 destinations available. Hong Kong Airlines has a great business product with lie-flat seats. So paying less than $600 is extremely cheap for round trip travel. That’s why I warned readers that this was likely an error fare and not to book anything else yet related to the trip. But now it seems that you can go ahead and plan your cheap getaway if you did book a flight.
One Miles at a Time got this response from Hong Kong Airlines.
Yes, Hong Kong Airlines is honouring the ticketed reservations.
Normal ticketing practice does not require reconfirmation for tickets already issued so our customers can look forward to travelling on Hong Kong Airlines as planned.
For anyone with questions about their booking, they may contact us through our USA/Canada Customer Service Hotline (toll-free) at +1 855 393 3880 or email email@example.com.
That’s great news if you did book a flight. It’s a super cheap deal. You’re getting lie-flat seats in business class for prices that could be even considered a deal in Economy class. I didn’t get in on it myself because of my schedule.
I still think it was an error fare, but Hong Kong Airlines have done the right thing and are honoring tickets that were purchased.
