    Bril deal. Pretty **** off I just bought return flights from Hong Kong over xmas, could have got a train to Beijing and saved myself hundreds of pounds.
    I suppose I's have to buy a Chinese visa and spend time on the train each way though but I wish I had had the option all the same. This is a good deal. Seems these open jaw flights are the cheapest way to go now a days

    Chinese visa £30 single entry. £ 8.00 service fee for visa - can't get through embassy. Took me 21 days to get..........avoid go somewhere more interesting! Rip off merchants in Beijing.

    Surprised a travel industry professional is posting this.

    Going to Italy with Ryanair and leaving less than 2 hours for the transfer to Alitalia?

    A recipe for losing whatever you paid for the flight to China & back when the Ryanair flight is late and you miss the connection.

    If you travelled on one ticket, it wouldn't be a problem ie they'd find you another flight.

    Not with Ryanair as part #1, though.

    Good price if you want the absolute cheapest but personally I wouldn't go for this.

    I'd be worried about delays with the initial flight to Bologna, plus that's a long return journey.

    You're looking at 17.5 hours back to Bologna, plus time to wait for your connection, then the flight time back to London. It could easily total 20 hours, which seems crazy given Beijing is about 10 hours direct.

    China is a wonderful country to visit though, I'd recommend it wholeheartedly!

    Since UK gov foisted APD on longhauls (in contrast to almost anywhere else in the world), Rome airport must be getting really busy.
    This govt really are taking us for mugs.
    UKIP, anyone?

    where did you get the £30 from? I paid £99 for my double entry this summer:(..I'm sure for single entry, it was like £80?

    Good price but not best best price because other travel agencies provide cheap flights from it.

    But it wasn't one of the flights for free? Don't accept that! They have to offer you other flights to Beijing. Please check the european passenger rights.

    Thanks a lot for your comments and advice.
    That was four months back, original deal post link : http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/italy-beijing-london-from-205-alitalia-1317883
    I booked it and paid by card, payment been taken, and called them to confirm the seats even.
    They emailed me this afternoon saying my flights are cancelled, that would be a disaster to me, because I have booked everything else, even the visa application!
    I called them twice today, first time made no success at all, the lady was keeping telling me they can refund me. When I called the second time, they can find me some alternative flights, but instead of Rome directly to Beijing, it will be Rome to Amsterdam then Beijing, return flights instead of Beijing to Rome then London, it will be only Beijing to Amsterdam then Rome, I said what about Rome back to London? I will have to call them again, 0870 number 10p a minute!
    They telling me the direct flight from Rome to Beijing is not operating any more!
    If they only have that Rome via Amsterdam to Beijing for me instead of flying directly, shall I just take it or asking them to get me another direct flight, I have 3 children travelling with me, including a infant!
    Any suggestions, has any one else received the same email as me?
    Many thanks!

    Hi there - same problem here. I was getting absolutely nowhere by calling them up, as every time I refused the refund they hung up! I wasted many hours on Friday and Saturday just trying to get answers from idiots that could not care less.

    I then decided to make my protest public and pasted the problem on the Alitalia Facebook page. Suddenly things were taken more seriously. In the end I received a call from someone that seemed to be helpful and she said that they are still sorting out codeshares for the same route with other airlines and I would be contacted "in around 48 hours". That time is now up and but I shall leave it until a little later.

    I obviously do not want a refund as I have booked dirt cheap Rome to Beijing and Beijing to Heathrow to return. I have therefore sorted Rome BA single flight, Rome hotel, Beijing hotels and visa etc etc

    Do you ahve any news yourself yet??
