Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a one way ticket home from HCMC to Los Angeles around June 20, 2010. I'm flexible with the exact date.

Please share advice on where to find the best deal.

Thank you and have a great day!

That KE flight is well priced, and it's an excellent airline. My search shows China Southern Air as low man at $625., and EVA Air (Taiwan) at $715. I took EVA myself a few months ago and it was excellent - new planes all the way. I paid $706. roundtrip from San Francisco in Oct/Nov. (Yes indeed, the roundtrip price could well be cheaper than the oneway!)
