INCREDIBLE. Cathay Pacific decided to match Hong Kong Airlines sub $400 prices from yesterday.

San Francisco is $347, though its very limited. More at $387. Los Angeles is at $387.

These are our favorite type of fares — low prices thanks to all out fare wars!

Cathay Pacific offers free checked bag and free seat assignments 48 hours out (based on our experience, there are always plenty of seats for assignment at the 48 hours mark – so put it on your calendar and check in exactly 48 hours out. You will need your passport info to check-in)

    Why do you like Hong Kong? Once is enough. Overcrowded, overpriced, bad weather, polluted.

    Of course. Most people love Hong Kong and I just don’t understand what they see that I am not able to see.

    I am just curious.

    I would live in london if the weather had been nicer. Bangkok is nice too since its cheaper. But too hot and humid. Tokyo is just too huge. And too many people. New York the same.So those cities only if I had a well paying job. I am partial to cheap places. If you are going to live in new York , I think Manhattan would make sense. The problem with big cities is just how dense they are and how little public open spaces there are. Yet that also means you get a lot more varied experiences without having to venture too far.

    Try living in Mumbai or djakarta or manila. When you live there, you get used to them. Most people living there wouldn’t want to move to something quieter and slower since their roots are in the big city, yet to imagine living your whole life not actually really having another option than that congested, polluted, smelly, stressful hell hole. Anyway big cities are good for the environment. Smaller foot print of humanity area wise is better than spread out suburbs.

    Hong Kong is nice too. Once you leave the dense kowloon and Hong Kong there is much more to do. But I never saw the appeal to visit it multiple times. Once to satisfy curiosity is enough. There are so many other places to see. I can’t imagine people really have time to visit the same city twice if they really want to see the whole world. That goes for every other city I have ever visited. just don’t have the time to visit twice.
