United Airlines MileagePlus Award Discount Asia-Pacific Text

Here are the eligible countries:

  • North Asia is defined as: China (Mainland), South Korea, Mongolia, and Taiwan.
  • South Asia is defined as: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam

Conclusion

Transiting in China is not always easy and delays are common due to airspace restrictions instituter by the army. I personally prefer redeeming my United miles for partners award in business or first class but this offer probably works for many.

I guess that the travel between United States and China is soft and/or highly competitive. This is oneway trying to keep the flights full.
