Afternoon Special – American: Newark – Shanghai, China. $632. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

This is a very very good price to Shanghai with a minor or major drawback depending on how you look at it — the itinerary requires overnight layovers on both the outbound and inbound. If you have a place to stay in Chicago, great fare. If you don’t, having to pay for hotels in addition to flight, not as good.
