There are few things we love more than a great deal in business class, which is precisely why we stay on the lookout for prices just like this: New York (JFK) to Bangkok (BKK) round-trip in business class for as low as $2,565. With this kind of price, you get to focus on what really matters — all that Thailand’s capital (and the rest of the country) has to offer.

Let’s take a look.

Fare Deal — Details

Thailand’s vibrant beauty, culture, and cuisine are attractive enough in their own right, but when an opportunity to experience them and fly in luxury presents itself? Sign us up!

These deals are being offered by Saudia, the flag carrier of Saudi Arabia. You’ll have to connect in Jeddah (JED), but the airline’s flagship lounge there has some unique features. It’s not huge — it measures just about 3,500 square feet — but it has a live pizzeria, a cigar lounge (for an additional fee), and absolutely adorable robot waiters.

  • Class: Business
  • Routes: New York (JFK) to Bangkok (BKK)
  • Dates: September 2024 to October 2024
  • Rates: From $2,565 round-trip

We’ve found availability in September 2024.

You’ll also find these rates in October and, as you can see, you have options for how long you’d like to stay. Note that in most examples you’ll have a long layover on the way back — but this makes for an excellent stopover in Jeddah!

Best Ways To Book

When you’re ready to grab this deal, head over to Google Flights to compare prices. You’ll get the lowest price booking with an online travel agency (OTA). However, you’ll want to be sure to lock in your travel plans because any changes might lead to a headache with third-party customer service.

When booking with an OTA, we recommend using a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which offers 3x Ultimate Rewards on all travel purchases and stellar travel insurance. The Platinum Card® from American Express, while usually a favorite, only offers 1x when booking through an OTA.

Final Thoughts

Here at Upgraded Points, we like money — and we know you do too! When we find an opportunity to stretch our dollar and our legs in business class at the same time, we can’t act fast enough. See you in Bangkok!
