Fly first class on Cathay Pacific for a quarter the price.
Look forward, for once, to a 16-hour flight with a special Gilt City deal for discounted round-trip, first-class tickets on Cathay Pacific.
You can do a lot with $20,000. Buy a Honda Civic. Pay off your college loans. Rent an apartment in Paris...for a year. You can also fly non-stop, in first class on a top airline, from the U.S. to Hong Kong—but Gilt City has made a deal with Cathay Pacific to reduce the round-trip price to $5,000 (including taxes and fees) while throwing in a bonus $500 Gilt City shopping credit. So let's be clear: Now is the time to book that trip to Hong Kong.
The catch? (Of course there's one.) This deal is only available on November 18, so set your calendar alert.
Here's how it works: Fly from San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), or Boston Logan (BOS) on Cathay Pacific, ranked one of the top ten international airlines in our2015 Readers’ Choice Awards. With this deal, you’ll get more than just the bragging rights. Cathay Pacific’s first class seat is a mini bed: a leather-lined, extra-wide seat that lies completely flat and comes with mattress topper, fluffy duvet, and complimentary PYE pajamas. Before it’s bedtime, the flight offers flutes of Krug champagne; a multi-course, made-to-order meal and wine list (though we’re partial to the Hong Kong–style hot milk tea); Bose noise-canceling headphones; and enough on-demand video options for a proper binge.
A ticket in first class also includes some niceties on the ground. Cathay Pacific’s “The Wing” lounge at Hong Kong Airport is already legendary for its Raffles–catered noodle bar, cocktails, and coffee lounge (where all pastries are made with certified French butter), but the newly renovated first class portion has private “cabanas” featuring daybeds and soaking tubs. This may be the only time it’s completely worth it to arrive to the airport extra early for your flight. Need more convincing? Hong Kong consistently impresses with its food scene, shopping, big city energy, and dramatic scenery.
To book this deal, visit Gilt City’s special Cathay Pacific First Class deal site on November 18 only, starting at 10 a.m. EST. Read the fine print—this deal won’t earn frequent flier miles—and the voucher must be redeemed by December 31, 2015. That said, there are no blackout dates, so you’re free to buy now and plan your travels later.
