United: – $767: HOUSTON (IAH) – Ho Chi Minh City (SGN). R/T

Update at 3:53 PM – I only see $767 ticket for Mar 18th to Apr 30th now. You can book $800 ticket from American Airline for February during Vietnamese New Year

$767 ticket from Houston to Ho Chi Minh City is the lowest fare for this route for a long time. The recent gas price drop probably plays a major role in international airfare super discount. Vietnamese New Year is on Feb 19, 2015 therefore I would try to find a date around those times to experience holiday in Vietnam
