H/T: Thank Wilson Calvert for the heads-up.

Air China has round-trip flights from Houston (IAH) to Tokyo (HND) for $499 with a connection in Beijing (PEK). Flights September to November and January to mid-February. Outbound Blackout: Oct 05 – Oct 15. Inbound Blackout: Sep 22 – Oct 03.

To avoid connection times greater than 4-hours:
Depart on SUN, MON, WED, FRI, SAT.
Return on SUN, TUE, THU, FRI, SAT.

Note: Connection times are 3-hours and 30 minutes in Beijing. It will take 21-hours total travel time to get there. This is about 4-hours longer than a similar flight on Delta, United, or American, but those others are priced about $800 more than this at the moment. On the plus side, this flies into HND, which is about 90-minutes closer to Tokyo than NRT.

Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on Tripadvisor to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal. Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability.

I was able to pull this up on Air China. Screenshot taken at 4:21 PM on 08/18/17.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.

    I tried to book an airfare going from Nov. 3 to Nov. 14. But after I put in all travelers’ information, the next page said something about date error (dates do not available or something) and didn’t let me continue. Please help 🙁
