|Come on, let's go.|
|Go for the miles, stay for the lounge...|
The flights vary, but are either direct from LAX to HKG, or some routings will take you through Tokyo for a few hours. If you're a Oneworld elite, this is no big hardship since the lounges at NRT are some of the best, probably closely following the embarrassingly good lounges at HKG.
|Not bad. Not bad at all.|
There are some decent prices for the rest of this year, but the real 'deals' are mostly early 2017, with prices well under $500! You can earn around 12,000 or more qualifying miles on this trip, plus it's a fun destination. The long haul flights are on American planes, so systemwides and miles and co-pay upgrades are possible for the trans pacific segments. Connections to and from Tokyo are on Cathay or JAL.
It probably won't last long, so get it on hold while you can if you're interested!
