Who are Oasis airlines? No idea but this seems like an incredibly cheap deal to me!
#2
It's the new 'budget' airline to HK. Reminds me of the BA price mistake a few years ago. Return to HK, and hotel for 4 nights for...£132 inc. Jokes
#3
Had an e-mail through with the same offer & the same airline & binned it rather than post it...looked way too good to be true or not have untold clauses & hidden charges...hope it does someone some good though (& no-one any harm).
#4
I believe it is legit. The thing is though, Virgin at times only charge about £360, and tbh, I know who I'd rather ride...sorry, fly with ;)
[admin]#5
It's totally legit. They are a newish budget airline trying to do Ryanair pricing on long haul.
#6
have flown Virgin to HK a couple of times; absolutely dreadful service and very cramped seats; complete contrast to their normally excellent Transatlantic Service.

Would certainly give Oasis a go.

[SIZE=2]Its defo legit http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/6082816.stm[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]IMO doesn't really benefit us up north as the cost and time involved in getting to Gatwick and back it too much, but would love to give the 1st class a try if they stick to their price structure.[/SIZE]

For anyone considering this ask yourself one question.

Can you live like a squished sardine for 16hours?

IMHO, £100 more for a proper airline and arriving without having deep vein thrombosis and requiring a chiropractor is worth it.

Oasis is flying two 17 year old Singapore Airlines 747s (but did a few more companies after that) with the original 14 channel inflight entertainment system (this is the *old* system, so no pause/stop//rewind etc) and the original seats . Free food is also provided so not too bad for a low cost...

But I would pick Virgin over this any day, even paying a bit more. I've flown to HK with BA, Air France, Cathay, Singapore Air, Swiss, Lufthansa and imho Virgin Atlantic beats them all in economy class.

On the other hand Oasis's business class with fully reclinable seats for £470 each way does seem a good deal compared with what Virgin Upper class and other companies charge for this..

jmarcelino care to elaborate as to why? I've never been to Asia myself, but I would like to one day.

But I've done short trips to Europe with Ryanair and Easyjet, never again, 16hours of that for me, personally, would drive me nuts, I'd arrive grumpy as hell, hardly the holiday mood I'd want.

Well Virgin Atlantic has an excellent flight entertainment system with one of the largest screens in economy and that lets you change among the many films and tv shows whenever you want, pause, rewind, fast forward, play games, its just excellent. Food is usually good too, with free ice cream, nicer wine and all the little luxuries.

I also wouldn't dream of going to Asia on a normal Ryanair flight! Ouch what a nightmare...

No, you do have more leg space on these long flights, play around with the entertainment system, get some food and then they turn down the lights so people can try to sleep, usually to wake up to some breakfast near arrival time. It's is tiring but after that you'll be in Asia, which is much more exciting than the boring old European continent :)

Do get the nighttime flight (leaving after 10pm) even if it is a bit more as it makes adapting to the time zone and the flight itself much more relaxing.

Most direct flights to HK take <14 hours

TBH I've flown with Cathy, BA and Emerites to HK and its only the latter one that I've found to be a bit more spacious and actually costing a couple of £100 less - granted it wasn't a direct flight but as you quite rightly point out being comfortable on long haul flights can only be good for your health, so have you flown with Oasis to form this opinion?
#13
Nope, it's my stereotyped summation from what I've seen of this budget airline

and proud to admit that until I can be proved otherwise :)

I did a quick check on expedia, that said 16hours.

Ta for the tips jmarcelino

Great system sure, but they make the seats rock hard and the recline is kept to a minimal to ensure they can be kept easily in vision (for the passenger behind). Full control movies and TV are great, but I'd rather get some kip, bit difficult when you are forced to sit near vertical.

I actually like that better as I have no problem getting some shut eye even with minimal recline but hate having people in front pushing themselves all the way back into me :) (especially when I'm trying to use my seat table)

The biggest inconvenience with Virgin is that due to their advanced (Linux based) entertainment system they have small boxes under all seats, where other airlines just have a couple on each row. But I think that's changing in future airplanes.

They started flying between Hong Kong and London sometime last year (October?). I know some people who's been on Oasis before, but I've heard that you don't get complimentary drinks/food!! You gotta buy them yourself...just like other budget airlines like EasyJet......>.<

I quite fancy this in May. According to weather.com, that's quite a rainy time of year. Has anybody any experience of HK in May? Also, is it a reasonable place to go for a 4-5 sightseeing type city break?

Definately worth 4 - 5 Days. Can get a bit steamy even in May, but rain can also be quite refreshing, any later though and the temp may feel too uncomfortable. You could combine the city area with trips to the islands and the new Disney Park.

Yeah, booked for May half term. Cheers for info, rep given, and to OP.
