Tue May 17, 2005 11:41 pm

I'm flying IAD to Hong Kong this summer. Any recommendations for best airlines (economy class)? Price not an issue....

I always recommend you go IAD-LAX-HKG on a hybrid UA/SQ itinerary. You can't beat SQ's economy.

Personally, I'm planning on going DCA-ORD-HKG on UA entirely in Sept. but that's just because its cost effective and I'd like to be able to upgrade.

UA is a good option, as far as I'm concerned.
Other Star Alliance possibility is IAD-YVR-HKG on AC.

If you prefer flying OneWorld carriers, try IAD-JFK-HKG on AA and CX.

IAD-YVR-HKG

I was entirely unaware that AC served IAD-YVR... Please enlighten me!

How about some Round-the-world-trip on any given Alliance ? At least RTW´s on StarAlliance allow backtracking within a continent. So you could fly east via Europe to HGK, backtrack to SIN and catch that SQ-A345 SIN - LAX or even SIN - EWR.

Alternatively fly via Southamerica (GIG/GRU) and Southafrica to SIN and onwards to HKG, then home either via Japan or even via New Zealand.

There is a downloadble tools for palnning RTW´s on www.staralliance.com (in the downloads section); however, the prices you have to obtain somewhere else ...

I would suggest ANA (NH) IAD-NRT-HKG. Just as fast as UA, you'll get UA miles and really great service.

I looked up flights on Orbitz using the test dates of Jul 8 and 15 (both fridays). Considering fare prices, airline / airline condition, services, ife, a/c, etc. I would go with CX.  Smile
