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.

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.

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.

United is rocking it with the cheap flights tonight. Flights from Houston (IAH) to Thessaloniki, Greece (SKG) are $740 for a round-trip with either one or two stops. Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and offers a lot of opportunity to visit the surrounding region. There are some cheaper fares available if you can handle a long layover of 10+ hours. There was no stopover component found in the fare basis rules.

[06/16/2014 @ 11:25 AM] United / Aegean still valid – 100% accrual. Turkish also doing $690 0% accrual, but will give you a stopover.
[10/06/2014 @ 11:56 PM] Added to “Flight deals that look cheap, but aren’t worth posting about”.

It looks like United is on a roll this evening. Cheap flights to Cairo, Egypt (CAI) are showing up at $802 for round-trip flights from Houston (IAH). No stopover component found in the fare basis rules, but you should always double check. I may have missed something. United and Air Canada seem to be handling the bulk of the traffic.

NOTE: This route will no longer be actively monitored. From a pure CPM basis, flights from Houston to Cairo will always seem deal-worthy. If this route isn’t on a Lufthansa / United sale, it will be on a KLM / Delta / Air France sale. If it’s on neither of those, you can get it for about $650 on Turkish. I’m leaving this as an “active deal” indefinitely. I will not send out notifications unless the route falls below $650 round-trip.
