Cathay Pacific has ridiculously cheap fares from Vietnam to the US in business and first class.
Cathay’s typical business class fare between the US and Asia is about $10,000 and a typical first class fare is $30,000. With this sale you can book business fares from $675 and first from $845. It’s available on Priceline for most dates.
Business class is only a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than first, so I’d highly recommend booking first class. Cathay Pacific first class features what I think is the best seat and best bed in the sky on any airline. Kosher meals from Asia and in Cathay first class lounges in Hong Kong are catered by London’s Hermolis, which makes by far the best kosher meals in the air.
Alas, these fares are only valid when originating from Vietnam to the US, but even if you use miles to fly one-way to Asia (Alaska miles are great for this!) and then use these fares to fly back home, it’s still an amazing deal and you’ll earn miles for the paid flight. You can earn 350% of the flown miles on this Cathay Pacific A fare when credited to Alaska Airlines.
You’ll may want to wait a few days before booking other non-refundable travel plans to Asia just to make sure this fare is honored, though the DoT will officially make airlines reimburse you for those costs if they don’t honor an airfare to/from the US…
