Crazy Air Prices
August 17, 2009 § 2 Comments
I was reading an article on CNN about low airfares and the declining state of the travel industry and decided to do some research on my own. To my amazement I found these international deals:
Chicago to Seoul: $386 via Asiana Airlines
Los Angeles to Shanghai: $285 via Asiana Airlines
San Francisco to Seoul: $345 via Asiana Airlines
What makes these prices even more surprising is that Asiana is notorious for being very expensive. My mom’s one way ticket last month cost more than $1000.
I also found:
Chicago to Cairo (round trip): 596 via Turkish Airlines
A trip to Egypt for less than $600?? If I hadn’t just gotten back from Asia I would have gone without a moment’s hesitation.
Korea Airlines also has a new first class seat that turns into a bed called the Kosmo Suites. I’ve been waiting for this my whole adolescent life!! Too bad it costs about $4000 a ticket. -_-
