Montreal to Taipei, Taiwan - $450 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Taipei, Taiwan

On Monday, September 24th, Air China is allegedly going to be having another flash sale, this time from Montreal to Taipei, Taiwan for $450 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The twist this time is that it's a companion fare sale. You are required to book 2 passengers at once for a total price of $899 CAD roundtrip (which works out to $450/person).

Air China's flash sales have not really been reliable, especially in the last 4 or 5 months.

The number of available dates varies a lot with their flash sales. Sometimes there are very, very few dates available, or they are only available for really long trips (3+ weeks) - to the point where marketing it as a flash sale is outright deception.

This is the first time I've seen them offer the companion fare twist.

I would also only consider these a good deal if the flights have relatively good layover times in Beijing. Some Air China flights have really long overnight layovers. It remains to be seen which flights they drop in price.

How to find and book these flights

1. On the night of Sunday, September 23rd go to the following Air China flash sale page...

LINK: Air China flash sale page

NOTE: Air China usually releases theses fares around 3:00 AM EST. In other words, you would need to stay up really late on the night of Sunday September 23rd, or get up really early on Monday September 24th.

2. Scroll down to the bottom, where the 'Flight Search' box can be found.

- Make sure the number of passengers is set to 2

- I'm assuming it has to be 2 *Adult* passengers, but it's not clear at this point.

3. Search for a flight from Montreal (YUL) to Taipei, Taiwan (TPE)

- Use the flexible dates feature to try and find the $450 roundtrip dates.

TIP: With similar flash sales, some people have had trouble using their credit card with the default payment option on Air China's website.

The Air China website also allows you to choose Paypal as the credit card processor, and that seemed to work better. A Paypal account is not required.

You can also try registering for an account on the Air China website ahead of time. It might make things faster/easier when it comes time to book.
