Amazing deal alert: lots of cities to Beijing for 445$ and shanghai for $550

Looks like I posted a little too soon on the Baltimore to Shanghai deal.  It appears that these same prices are available from several other cities including Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.  Flights to Beijing are 445$ round trip.  Again, I highly doubt that these prices will be around for long.

Amazing deal alert: Baltimore to Shanghai for 550$ round trip

Just came across this great fare.  Baltimore (BWI) to Shanghai (PVG) for $550 round trip with all taxes and fees included in that price.  There seems to be pretty good availability throughout winter and early spring.  I doubt this price will be around for long.
