$100 to Hong Kong from Chicago? There's a catch...

To celebrate Cathay Pacific's introduction into the Chicago market, they're offering 100 seats at $100 to Hong Kong. But according to USA Today, there's a catch and you have to be quick. Good luck!!!


Beginning today, Cathay Pacific will put 25 of the $100 tickets "up for grabs" each Thursday through the end of the month. Customers must go to Cathay Pacific's special "100 tickets for $100" page, where the ticket window will officially open at 4:25 p.m. ET (3:25 p.m. CT).

"The first 25 people to click the 'PURCHASE NOW' button at the appointed time will get a roundtrip ticket to Hong Kong from Chicago for just US$100," Cathay Pacific explains via a release.

The airline will repeat that process three more times, also at 4:25 p.m. ET on the next three Thursdays (July 14, July 21 and July 28). That 4:25 p.m. ET (3:25 p.m. CT) time, in case you're wondering, will be the scheduled departure time for Cathay Pacific's Hong Kong-bound flight from O'Hare.
