How To Book
Start your search at Google Flights. Once you find the dates and times that work for you, you can proceed to book directly on the China Southern Airlines website or any OTA such as Priceline, Expedia etc.
Flying from NYC to China for just $329 is an incredible deal, but as mentioned above, you will be flying in Economy in an extremely long flight. I often fly in Economy but I have never tried it for 15 hours. If this is a deal for you I would suggest you book quickly because it won’t last long.
If you book direct, don’t forget to use a card that gives you the best rewards on airfare such as Amex Platinum (5x on airfare), Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on travel) or Citi Prestige (3x on airfare). You can also use travel credit from your Citi Prestige or the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
