Business class to China for $1788 via Hainan Airlines (plus boatload of Alaska MileagePlan miles)


The Deal:

Round trip business class fares from Los Angeles to Changsha, China for $1788. Other cities may be available.  For example, I see some dates from Chicago (ORD) to Changsha (CSX) via Beijing for about $1900.

Why It’s Hot:

Great price for round trip business class to China. Additionally, these “R” class fares earn 200% Alaska MileagePlan miles when credited to Alaska, meaning that the round trip flight should earn 28,000 Alaska redeemable (and elite-qualifying) miles before any status bonuses. If you have, for example, status matched a Southwest Companion Pass to Alaska MVP Gold, you would earn an additional ~14,000 miles for a total of 42,000 miles.


Hainan only runs two flights a week from LAX, so while availability is throughout the spring, summer, and fall, the number of flight options each week are limited. Check dates through Google Flights or ITA Matrix and then book where you wish.

Great posting. How can I get onto your mailing list?



How much does it cost to change the ticket? I want to book now but my schedule is not fixed yet.


I matched my status from AA Exec Plat to Alaska MVP Gold 75k, so I believe I’d get 49,000 Alaska miles from this deal. With the AmEx Biz Plat, very tempting. Wish it was to somewhere other than China.


Great deal, thanks for posting. And even better through Amex for those with the Biz Platinum. I hasn’t thought about using MR points for these cheap Biz fares, but I’ll be paying more attention to them from now on.
