    Cost of flights to UK

    I have to go to UK and haven't been in a while.

    Anyone been recently and can tell me the approximate cost. Is there a significant difference between airlines/routes?

    Currently have 37,500 Eva Air direct.

    That (to me) is not a bad price. - But surprised Eva Air go direct - thought that in the past when I looked it was routed through Hong Kong.

    Just out of interest, went and checked on this - yup. Direct flight.

    Mind you, I got quoted 33,525 baht as the cheapest option, but obviously that is subject to days/times etc.

    lufthansa had a good deal via frankfurt, it was 35 ish when i looked yesterday, but the prices seem to change every day depending on who knows what.

    kayak is showing qatar at 31000 for a flight on friday.

    it seems that booking a flight to depart within 48 hours can bring a good price.

    anybody got experience of booking through kayak?

    It's always worth checking out Super Deals
    There is nothing advertised today, and it can have nothing on it for a while, then suddenly it springs to life with lots of offers. I got a Thai Air direct flight to Heathrow one way for 9900bht inc taxes in early April.

    We actually went with KLM, we booked 2 days before we flew and the price was 34000 return to Manchester.

    The return flight at the end of March was delayed then cancelled due to hurricane force winds at Amsterdam, we missed our connection there and were stuck in Manchester for 2 nights until they could re-book us, they eventually re-booked us on Qatar.

    We had an excellent flight with them. Brand new planes on both legs of the journey, good service and decent enough food. The stopover was in the new airport at Dohar and both flights were on time.

    I would certainly use them again.

    KLMs customer service during the delays was nothing short of a disgrace however.

    I'd noticed that it seemed to be much more expensive to book a return from here to the UK than vice versa.

    35k approx here (not talking about special deals)
    25k from UK

    As far as I remember, years ago you couldn't book a return flight starting somewhere other than where the travel agent was physically based.

    That stopped you doing what I just did. Because with global online commerce those rules don't apply anymore.

    I booked a flight via lastminute last month.

    BKK>LDN

    550 quid direct with BA

    in the UK, Trailfinders have always come up with prices cheaper than or equal to web prices. That is for return flights on a one year ticket.

    Always had good service from Evaair. Emirates can be cheaper but then you have to change flights in Dubai.

    Within airline lingo, the definitions are as follows:

    Direct - 1, 2, or 3 stopovers.
    Nonstop - none.
