Hi guys,

I am currently shopping around for a ticket from Bangkok to New York, leaving around 7 August and coming back around 15 August.

The cheapest I have found so far is with China Airlines, for about US$ 1320. A bit more adventurous is a combination of Emirates BKK-HKG, Oasis HKG-YVR and Cathay YVR-JFK, which is fun to do but obviously takes longer and price-wise it is about the same.

I am not that familiar with low cost airlines in Canada and the US, maybe there are some very affordable ways to get from Vancouver to New York if I take the Oasis flight from Hong Kong? Or maybe a cheap connection via Europe - Zoom came up with a very interesting fare of GBP 99 one-way from Gatwick to New York, but about the same amount was added to that for taxes, surcharges and whatever else!

Thanks in advance for any input.

That was my experience also when I went to Thailand in March, China Air, was significant less ($700) than anyone else when I booked, it would have been foolish to take anyone else. Didn't have any problems with them, and if you get a 744 with the new interior, even coach isn't to bad.

Very true it would be more adventurous, but if the Emirates, or Oasis flight is delayed what happens, your trip becomes much longer.

I personally think that an extra $210 to take Thai non-stop would be worth it, but of course:
- Non-stop that is a long flight. Maybe you want to take a break somewhere.
- Maybe you are adventurous and want to stop somewhere
- Maybe you don't have a Star Alliance mileage program you keep up on

But China Airlines is okay and there shouldn't be any problems with them if that's what you want. Your other itinerary seems rather complicated - how long are the layovers? That may be a concern.

How about using a CX All Asia Pass via YVR and HKG? AFAIK it's $1099 + taxes..would that be cost-effective? You'd be able to see HK if you so desired at no extra cost.


Just accept that some days, you're the pigeon, and other days the statue

Thanks for the tip, but I will be travelling from Asia to North America. I think this All Asia Pass is for North American travellers going to Asia, no?

If you want an "adventurous" flight from Bangkok to New York, have you considered Aeroflot BKK-SVO-JFK?
You'd get the IL-96 to SVO but only a 767 to JFK.
I am sure there rates are low.
