Cheapest way from Shanghai to Tokyo?

I was looking at Cathay Pacific from Shanghai to Tokyo via Hong Kong, for £365. But this is not that cheap really. Surely there must be a better option direct from PVG-NRT.

I refuse to fly on any American airline due to the likelihood of terrorism so Delta are not an option, and that leaves me with just the shabby Chinese or Japanese carriers which I'm not too keen on.

Any help?

Are you serious? You want cheap but not shabby? Impossible!

$500 to tokyo- thats cheap to me for a top class airline.

I do advise that china eastern ais seriously rubbish. Avoid at all cost.

Have a look on the matrix or skyscanner websites to compare prices.

i dont think the japanese airline could fit your budget since they are not cheap. it leaves you the choice of air china, china eastern or shanghai airline ( but this one arrives at Haneda Airport )

Loads of Japanese in Shanghai which is dirt cheap compared to Japan. So they don't care how much their flights are. Accordingly flight are quite expensive. Also no private competition as all regulated by Chinese government. Cathay offer looks cheap to me!

Play with this site to get an overview about flight fares: www.ctrip.com also check flights from Shanghai Hongqiao (SHA) to Haneda (HND)
