Remember how we reported that American Airlines was gonna start up a new nonstop Shanghai-Los Angeles route? Well it’s finally (almost) here! Starting on April 5th, China Eastern is no longer going to be the only direct flights carrier between the two coastal cities. To sweeten the deal, AA has a special promotional price. Prices for a one-way flight start at 2,617RMB (399USD) from April 5 to May 5 and 2,479RMB (378USD) from May 20 to June 17. You’ll also earn double (flying economy) or triple (business and first class) miles if you’re part of AA’s reward program for travel between April 5 through to June 30. Oh yeah, let’s not forget that in mid-May United Airlines will alo begin their direct Shanghai-LA flights. Here’s hoping they undercut AA’s promotions even further.
