Update: This fare is now dead, though see the post “10 Things You Need To Know About American’s Business Class Fare To Beijing” for more information.
Hurry up, folks! American is charging under $450 for roundtrip business class between Washington and Beijing.
You can book directly on aa.com. It’s paid business class, and because of that you can use systemwide upgrades to upgrade to first class.
This won’t last long!
Update: The fare is only valid for outbound travel through May 27, 2015, and there’s a three day minimum stay. Also keep in mind you’ll need a visa for travel to China, though you can easily pick up a 10 year multi-entry visa.
