Q:

What is the upgrade cost, into first class air? Would be able to apply airline points?

Nicole L.  asked on  Aug 13, 2013

A:

Hi Nicole! We do not have contracted rates for business class with Air China. We can research the additional cost for your departure dates based on live airfare availability. On average, an upgrade to business class is approximately $3500 - $5200 per person in addition to the tour cost. Because of our already deeply discounted fares, the flights we use are not eligible for airline miles.
