Travel to and from Hong Kong is easier now that hotel quarantine has ended. It is also more expensive. Much more expensive. 

A business class ticket between Hong Kong and Los Angeles leaving Friday and returning on Oct. 7 cost HK$102,270 ($13,029) Monday with Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd., the only carrier offering the nonstop service in the wake of the pandemic. That’s more than double the HK$44,499 fare for the same flight next year. The price dropped to about HK$76,000 Tuesday morning.
