Cathay Pacific announce Boston as their 7th North American city this week. The service between Boston and Hong Kong will start in May, 2015. As part of the service launch, they are having a special introductory fare sale for $$754 for nonstop service — we think $754 is a very good deal for nonstop service, even if its non-mileage earning with American.

United has match the fare — however, since they do not fly nonstop, it is a little more due to the extra fees associated with the connection.

Update 8/27/2014 @ 4:35PM Eastern – Cathay fare gone. Still some United left.
