I was starting to look for some cheap flights back to Alabama and stumbled upon an amazing air flight sale from United Airlines with incredibly cheap flights to Asian, Australia, and all over the globe. A big change from recent high price fares blamed on a slagging airline industry, high fuel costs, and pending strikes.
Chicago – Osaka $310
Los Angeles – Melbourne or Sydney $474
Los Angeles – Tokyo $275
New York City – Osaka or Tokyo $330
San Francisco – Melbourne or Sydney $474
San Francisco – Tokyo $275

Washington, D.C. – Osaka or Tokyo $310
As usual, there are restrictions and limits, but if you are in the mood to take a long trip, go for it.
