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.
