China Southern Airlines has a flight that stops in Guangzhou before heading to Sydney—at a significant discount.

Air China has offered a $399 round-trip ticket from New York to Tokyo, Seoul, and Hong Kong if you don’t mind stopping first in Chengdu.

Hainan Airlines has opened 75 new long-haul routes since 2006—and those now includes Las Vegas.

Do you want to fly between New York and Bangkok?

A ticket on China Eastern Airlines, with a stop in Shanghai, will cost you $570.
