Deal: Delta One Business Class Canada-Beijing Roundtrip from $2,071
Delta is currently offering Business Class fares from Ottawa (YOW), Toronto (YYZ), and Montreal (YUL) to Beijing (PEK) starting at just $2,071 roundtrip. Aside from being insanely cheap Business Class fares for a 13 hour+ flight each way, these are in Delta’s brand new A350 aircraft! This means you’ll be in Delta’s brand new suites!
Eligible dates appear to be from mid-January to mid-August 2018. Fares begin to increase by about $200 starting in March. Go to Google Flights to begin the search process. Just input one of those three originating cities with Beijing as the destination, set the fare class to Business Class, and play around with the dates to find the best fare.
If you don’t live in Canada you can still take advantage of these fares. Just book a separate cheap flight from your home in the US to one of the eligible cities. Remember to book with a credit card that maximizes your point earning. For example, the Platinum Card from American Express earns 5X points per $1 on airfare booked directly with the airline, the Chase Sapphire Reserve earns 3X points per $1 on travel, and the Citi Prestige also earns 3X points per $1 on travel.
