    ORD doesn't get too many good deals. If you can swing the 3 day minimum, this is one of the best fares to PEK in a long time.

    Sample Travel Date:
    9/4 -9/9

    Valid Travel Periods:
    September for Monday - Thursday departures

    K Fare, so segments between NRT -> China are only 50%, but TPAC segments are 100% when crediting to UA. This will earn 13.8K miles or 4.9 CPM if you do a straight ORD-NRT-PEK-NRT-ORD itinerary when crediting to UA.

    Don't forget, for US passport holders, that routing NRT-PEK-NRT does *not* qualify for TWOV.

    Is "TWOV" transit without visa? Does this mean it doesn't count for the not needing a visa if you're transiting for 72 hours or less? Still learning about what's okay with China.

    TWOV = Transit WithOut Visa

    This means that NRT-PEK-NRT would need a visa. NRT-PEK-ORD on the other hand, would qualify for TWOV and *not* require a visa for a stay of less than 72 hours.
