I'm planning to go to HKG at the end of next April, so I'm planning way in advance, but I'm trying to figure out when the best fares will be available and/or who to book through.
I've thought about consolidators, and I know a number of Chinese travel agencies in YYZ with good deals, but I'm thinking of maybe using Aeroplan points to get to another gateway city (SFO, LAX or YVR) to open up a few more options.
I'd love to go CI in J from SFO or LAX via TPE, since it seems like the best value for money but BR Y+ from YVR and SQ nonstop from SFO also catch my attention.
Any tips on how to get the best deal (timing or consolidators) would be greatly appreciated!!
