I live in Portland, Or and am planning a trip to Thailand in early November 2015. I'm wondering what others have paid for round trip tickets to Bangkok from the West Coast. I don't know what a "good price" is.
Thanks for your help!
Last April I bought Asiana tickets (loved them) for about $1,300 from LAX to Bangkok for a December trip. Given I was flying from LA, and during their busy time/Christmas, I think you could probably find something cheaper. I'd be anxious to hear what you find! I'm already ready to plan a trip back!
Check out Hipmunk, you'll get an idea of different prices, then call the airlines for a better price!!!
Pull up Momondo.com, calc the fare you want, then get an email trigger going. Remember that BKK is not your only option - Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are equally good gateways to move to/from // sidetrip to BKK on Air Asia may still make dollar sense. Many ways to slice the cake. Also build fare from SEA ... not PDX.
Hope that helps.
I bought LAX-BKK tickets back in August for 800 round trip!
Update: My fiance and I bought tickets from PDX to Bangkok for $847 a piece. I feel great about this price, I've seen them dip as low as $800 but they came with a 47 hour return flight.
The tickets are from Portland>Seattle>Soul North, Korea>Bangkok and run around 20 hours.
I hope this helps others trying to understand what others have payed.
$650 round trip from SFO to BKK for a trip in February 2016!! (Booked in November.) But think we just got really lucky. And the catch is the overnight layover in Tokyo but we were excited about that- using it to do a quick whirlwind tour of Shinjuku/Shibuya & Tsukiji - Gindaco (Esplanade) fish market.
