2017: Chicago/Taipei Round Trip

2017: Chicago/Taipei Round Trip

Trip Synopsis

Business Class Round Trip Chicago to Taipei on EVA Air + Business Class One Way Chicago to New York on United for 160K United MileagePlus Miles.


MMB Analysis

  • Check out new route by EVA Air from its hub in Taipei to Chicago when award seat availability is good.
  • Travel time and comfort are of essence to enjoy a brisk vacation across the Pacific Ocean during the spring break week.
  • Take advantage of United’s free “open jaw” flight on international award booking. It’s called open jaw because this US to Asia trip starts in Chicago and ends in New York. United sees Chicago as a stopover city en route from Taipei to New York. The Chicago stopover lasts from April to August, leading to our mini-vacation to New York in August with outbound flight already covered by this redemption.
