The Deal

  • Cheap flights to and from South Korea from several US cities, with prices as low as $434 round trip

Quick Thoughts

As with all airfare sales, this can change at any minute. Prices are cheapest through small OTAs you’ll find at metasearch sites like Momondo and Skyscanner. Keep in mind that cancellation policies at some of those small OTAs may vary, so check the details if your plans aren’t firm.

Scott’s Cheap Flights reports these fares being available from various US gateways (like JFK, LAX, SFO, ORD, and SEA) to Seoul, South Korea from September through March. Prices vary depending on where you book and there are quite a few airlines with similar pricing depending on your dates/route. For instance, here’s Los Angeles to Seoul from October 1st to 10th, 2019 via Google Flights showing up at $512.

But if you look at those dates through Momondo, the best you’ll find is $466 round trip.

In other words, you better shop around. Flights reportedly range from as low as $434 from Los Angeles to 48$520 out of New York, with other gateways falling in between. South Korea is a long way to fly, but if you’re comfortable in economy class, a sale like this can save you points to so you can use them to splurge on accommodation instead. It’s further nice that these fares are being offered on a variety of airlines, with some of them being decent options.

I see in the example that you gave, you list Hong Hong Airlines. If I were to fly them, I’d pick a date no more than 2 months out, if that. Too many reports of infighting among investor groups, the Chinese government threatening to revolt Their permit to fly, and overall financial problems.
