    Sorry newbie question here. How does one determine if there are other stop overs that can be taken advantage of, besides the one in Beijing?

    @Ashish – the best way is via a subscription on Expert Flyer (about $10/month). that would give you a full set of routing rules. otherwise, its just trial and error.

    Anyone having problems trying to book this flight? The United website isn’t allowing the final booking. I called United and it appears to be something to do with the Cathay Pacific flight to PEK.

    @Justin – switch the cathay pacific flight to dragonair. just x out the cathay flight and select a dragonair one and it should book.
