Did you know that the United Club WiFi access points at IAH don’t have a password and anyone can jump on it if they’re in range? Well, now you do.
It looks like Austin is on a roll with the cheap flights tonight. Inexpensive round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to London (LHR) are $770 with 1-stop. United is the carrier.
[07/03/2014 @ 6:48 PM] This fare is no longer available. Next best is now $1120.
Hmm. Austin to Hong Kong or Tokyo, which to choose? Why not Hong Kong and Tokyo to Osaka and Kyoto for $947 + $148 rail for the 2015 cherry blossom season?
[06/30/2014 @ 3:11 PM] Price has increased to $980.
[07/16/2014 @ 7:30 PM] The fare used to create this itinerary is no longer available at a discount.
It’s rare to see a cheaper flight from Austin (AUS) to Hong Kong (HKG) than out of Houston (IAH) but apparently it happens now and then. Flights from Austin (AUS) to Hong Kong (HKG) are $818 round-trip, 1-stop. Fare allows two stopovers, one each direction and a free open-jaw!
[06/30/2014 @ 3:13 PM] Price has increased by $19 to $837.
[07/16/2014 @ 7:28 PM] United is no longer offering this route, but American Airlines is for $837.
I’m seeing really cheap flights from Houston (IAH) to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV). Round-trip flights with one-stop are $760 for flights departing in the winter until spring 2015.
[06/30/2014 @ 3:19 PM] Most flights with mileage accrual no longer available. Turkish allows a stopover in Istanbul, but accrues no miles.
[08/03/2014 @ 8:50 PM] Deal gone. Next lowest is Turkish for $811.
This is an update to an older post that was removed from the active deals list. I’ve re-added it and updated the details.
[06/22/2014 @ 9:20 PM] Added this back to the deals page. Asiana flights still available: 70% accrual. Air Canada available: 100%, 10+ hour stopover required in Toronto.
[06/24/2014 @ 11:39 PM] Asiana pulled their fare. Air Canada still available. Delta available for $824 with full accrual.
[06/26/2014 @ 1:50 AM] Cheap flights out of Austin available for $814, United.
[07/15/2014 @ 3:59 PM] United is offering the route for $884 and allows free open-jaws and two (for a fee) stopovers.
[07/18:2014 @ 12:53 AM] This post is deprecated. United fare moved into its own post. This post now points to the most relevant post.
[06/19/2014 @ 12:12 PM] Deal looks dead. Price increased to $280.
United Airlines flights from Austin (AUS) to San Francisco (SFO) are on sale right now. Tickets are $227 non-stop round-trip. To those of you that are reluctant to make the drive to catch the flight, consider this: The amount of time you would spend driving to Austin (AUS) plus the flight is less than the total travel time for the $339 flight out of IAH with a layover.
This post is deprecated. It now directs to the last relevant Amsterdam deal.
If you’re going to drop about $1000 on airfare to Asia you should probably just do this instead.
Fly from Houston to Tokyo, then take the Shinkansen (Japan’s high-speed bullet train) to Kyoto and Osaka then catch a flight to Jakarta, hang out there for a while before catching a flight to check out Singapore, eat a chili-crab, then finally, after all of that, get on a plane back home to Houston for $1258 flights + $148 rail.
This itinerary makes good use of the fare’s free open-jaw and paid-stopover.
[07/10/2014 @ 1:04 PM] This fare looks dead.
