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.
