with bt-store, you have to depart from the US- i'm going from beijing to lax. elong.net has super cheap flights, i don't think you can beat $350 to the states.

I just recently used these guys. Their quoted internet prices are quite different from their actual prices.

Original price on their site was 5500RMB Beijing - Vancouver return.
This went up to 6300RMB following after a phone converstation on basis that tickets were no longer avaliable, and then up to 7300RMB after they 'convienently' forgot to add on associated taxes.

ctrip is cheaper than elong for domestic and for int'l. flights

Compare them yourself: www.elong.net & http://english.ctrip.com/

www.bt-store.com

I just bought three one way tickets to Shanghai for $1808USD--that is pretty much the price that Air Canada quote for a round for me from Toronto to Shanghai--one person round vs 3 people one way. I'll take the 3 people one way option. Especially when all 3 of us have to get there! We're also flying out of Detroit instead of Toronto so those living in Southwest Ontario should consider Detroit instead of Toronto--cheaper taxes!

I went into my local flight centre. Few things surprised me: Air Canada.

1) I cannot get a one-way ticket to china.

2) I cannot get a ticket for longer than one year. Nor can i extend the one year ticket. There is apparently no way to stay for longer than a year.

All this seems strange.. Is this standard?

if you had proof of onward travel and/or a valid chinese visa or residence permit then you should be able to buy and travel on a one way ticket to china.

air tickets are only valid for one year. i dont know why but this is standard.

I would recommend against using Expedia. I've called them four times in the last week to change my flight and have gotten nothing but headaches. The people who work there are useless.

Quick question, see for ctrip. Is all you need the resevervation number from the confirmation email and your passport to check in?

I usually use Kayak.com

The website searches all the major travel sites (Orbitz, Expedia, Priceline, etc.) and shows you the cheapest available price.
