    did you use priceline.com.hk?

    no, they weren't similar at the time. i was looking for dec 1-jan 3... so perhaps with the dates i wanted, cx was too much.

    for my dates, the two that were the most reasonable were AC and eva air.

    I modified my fly dates and it turns out AC does offer a much better price! Thanks Cara!

    Darn, now I am really tempted to book - but husband is out of town on a business trip and I haven't confirmed dates with him yet!!

    Now from what you say, if i wait till he comes back (10 days), we may not get that price anymore. But if i book without checking dates with him, it may backfire if we end up having to pay penalty!!

    you can't contact him?

    what dates are you looking at?

    i am really astonished at the difference in prices! the priceline price is now the same as what AC was charging directly when i first started the thread ($29 000)... now i wonder what AC's website would charge now...

    I checked AC prices on their website, it's $29000 plus for 2 adults, 1 child. If I modify my fly dates to leave mid-Dec, Priceline offers it for just under $25K.

    I'm calling him at his hotel tonight and hope to lock it in before prices go up.

    (The only thing is, sometimes AC does offers in Sep where round trip YVR tix are sold for around $6K.)

    my tickets are: 1 adult, 2 kids... so that will be part of the price difference.

    even at $6k (which is about the price i paid), once you add in the taxes/surcharges etc, it comes out to about $8-8.5k per adult...

    this is what i paid (straight from the receipt):

    ir Tickets

    Price per adult HK$5860.00
    Price per child HK$4390.00
    Subtotal HK$14640.00
    Taxes and surcharges HK$8340.00
    Processing fee HK$0.00

    Total Charges HK$22980.00
