United: Newark / Chicago – Hong Kong. $895. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Cathay Pacific has put Newark and Chicago on sale to Hong Kong. United has responded. We’re only publishing the fare from United for a few reasons – 1. Cathay Pacific’s fare does not earn miles with either its own program or American Airlines; 2. These flights equal over 15,000 miles or enough for an one way domestic award ticket (about $125 – $150 in value). By flying with United, you will save money in the long run. As much as we like Cathay Pacific, it is not worth a $125 difference in overall value.
