Was just looking for flights to Hong Kong from Manchester for next year and wasn't expecting to find anything cheaper than about £500 as it's during the school holidays, but lo! and behold, they are offering returns via Helsinki for a fantastic £334! Finnair are a very good airline by all accounts, so I bit their hand off and booked two seats from 7th to 18th April. Cheap as chips! Or prawn crackers for that matter!
Seats seem to be available at this price during March / April, apart from flying on Good Friday where the price shoots up to a staggering £4,349!!!!! I'd avoid flying then!
