This deal is cheaper than the 3/5 star Chinese airlines' business class deal *and* flown on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner *and* you may earn mileage points with Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program. I'd say this is an exceptional deal as Hainan is Skytrax certified-rated 5 out of 5 stars for Worlds Best Airlines. Available via Skyscanner out of Los Angeles (LAX) to Beijing (PEK), Shanghai (PVG), Guangzhou (CAN) or Tokyo (NRT) from $1539-$1668, round trip, making 1 stop. Google photos of the their business class, enjoy the service and enjoy the trip!

Most Chinese airlines are bad you are right. But Hainan Airline is only major Chinese airline that is not state-owned. Hainan airline is 5-star and you can checkout a review of business class from Sam Chui here https://youtu.be/Uj7F_uNhTxI

How do you fly Spirit and JetBlue and think they're similar airlines? They are worlds apart.

JetBlue has free beverages and snacks onboard. Free wifi and free live TV. The product is better than economy on Delta, American and United.

Spirit nickel and dimes you on everything and you get a thin seat with the bare minimum padding that doesn't recline on Spirit.

You don't travel much do you?

Let me guess, you've never flown Hainan? Hainan is on the opposite end of the spectrum from Air China. Privately owned, brand new planes, very high ratings, 1-2-1 booths in business. The notion you "get a better seat transcontinental business class" is simply untrue. Would you equate Spirit to Jet Blue simply because they're American? It's at least bigoted and ignorant (if not downright racist) to claim they're bad simply because they're Chinese. There are some really good Chinese airlines... Xiamen would be another one.

Wow. This route in BC is typically $4K - $7K. Too bad there's one stop. Makes total travel time 24 hours. =/ But whatevs -- I'll just hang out in the BC lounge. Ha!

Good deal, but be careful - this is not what you may think of when you think of business class. Chinese airlines business class is not that great - its better than coach on a major carrier, but nowhere near where Delta/American/United business class comfort level is at. I think the price is reasonable, but I wouldn't go out of my way for this deal.

I fly it, but its funny, I get a better seat transcontinental business class than I do going to China on a chinese airline. If it were Cathay Pacific, I would be all over this, but its not so I will take a pass.

Spirit is inferior to Jet Blue in both soft and hard products.... not to mention Jet Blue Mint, which is in another dimension compared to anything Spirit has to offer.

Edit: A full flight review is up for those interested. [theflightbrothers.net]

A little late on this post since Alaska's double mileage promo was from 6/1 to 8/31 and is now over. Prices all summer were <$1,500 but that's no longer the case.

We mileage ran on the new Dreamliner routes to China a handful of times this summer during Alaska's promo for Hainan's 20 year Fortune Wings club anniversary. Each trip pulled in 70k Alaska Mileage Plan miles. I've got a travel review coming up soon to cover it.

Still a good deal, but traveling in 2020 doesn't help with renewing or earning MVP Gold 75k in 2019 - so if you're in it for the points, it isn't quite as lucrative.

Keep in mind, Hainan's ground experience is dreadful, so it really helps if you're a savvy traveler and/or speak Chinese.

Hainan is outstanding! Loved traveling on it vs. the terrible Delta airlines on my first China trip. Great service! Wish this deal was from Dallas. Would not mind mind re-visiting China any day!
