West Coast flyers rejoice! The Flight Deal just published a great fare on Delta Air Lines between San Jose and Shanghai for $302 round trip. That price includes all taxes and fees, though there is very limited availability. I can’t confirm it myself, but there are flights available as low as $399.
You can check out The Flight Deal for more information about how to search for this flight on ITA Matrix, or try it yourself using my guide to ITA Advanced Routing Language.
I’ve provided an example of the search I would perform to find other dates and cities that might have a similar fare. This particular search looks for departures from several West Coast gateways, with one or more flights on Delta, and a trip duration of 3-7 nights sometime in February. (You’ll also want to read my guide to picking a great seat in coach if you’re flying on a cheap fair to Asia!)
As you can see, Portland and Oakland might also be good candidates, but be sure to check around. Other dates might have the original $302 fare advertised by The Flight Deal. Once you find an itinerary that works, you can search again on Google Flights, Delta Air Lines, or your favorite online travel agency.
