Delta: Washington D.C. – Beijing, China. $846. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good deal to Beijing for travel beginning in January 2013. Beijing is probably the best introduction to China for first time visitors. There are tons of historic sites but we are a bit biased towards Beijing because it has what we think is the world’s best Peking Duck restaurant at Made in China in the Grand Hyatt Beijing.

The fare has been bouncing all over the place this week — one minute it is at $787, the next at $846, and then the next at $956. It seems to have stabilized at $846.

      @Robert, we just tried a booking via Orbitz. Make sure “Additional search options” and “Narrow the search to my preferred airlines” is selected and then “Delta” is the selection. Once we do that, the itinerary that we found via ITA Matrix priced out correctly. It will not price out otherwise.
