Great deal! Seems Virgin are starting to realise they need to pull in the passengers! Heat & Rep!
#2
Last time I checked flights (from any airline) to HK during last summer the cheapest then was around £420 to £450 including taxes so this deal is an absolute bargain! :thumbsup:
#3
grrr... just beat me to posting it!

If you go to the virgin website you will see that they are doing these special promotions for the next 5/6 weeks because of their 25th birthday. a new deal/destination every week. A good price but IMO not as good as the £224 to Newark. However double the flight time for £100 extra but things to do in Hong kong are somewhat restricted. At the end of the day it's a small island, right? Next best price coming up for H.K. is with Air New Zealand on Airline Network for about £349

Tempted... very tempted - never been to HK

Paid £1508 for family of 4, and just checked and it's now £1288 :(

Surely the OP is simply recommending this as a good deal for a flight to HKG? I don't see why you had to point out the cost of a trip to Newark. That would be like me saying that a flight to another country was cheaper and better - this is surely down to personal opinion. Also, I'm not sure whether you have actually been to HKG or not, because there is actually a lot to do and see there. It might be a small island, but as it's under the SAR, you can also visit the New Territories, along with easy access to China whislt your there due to the excellent transport links.

Here, here. I would rather spend a week in HK than NYC. Great spot OP!

Keep checking other websites, they're all looking to cut costs.
For anyone outside Heathrow's area, Emirates were doing Singapore returns from £397 from regional airports with a free stopover at Dubai either way.
#13
Wow Amazingingly cheap for Hong Kong.
#14
Hey guys, was wondering if I could ask some advice please.

I'm off to Philippines at the end of April, and am also trying to get to Vietnam for a few days somewhere in-between. I think that a return to Philippines is about £500, so would booking this £325 to Hong Kong, then getting a flight on to Vietnam and then Philippines still work out cheaper?

Sorry to be a pain, I've not done long-haul before apart from the States. Really appreciate any feedback at all.

is there not 2% quidco on this as well?

I flew into HK in 2006 with the intention of flying on to Vietnam and without doing the research :roll: Turned out to be a very expensive way of doing it, however if you want to do it cheaply it is very easy and cheap to get to Vietnam overland via China and you get to spend a couple of days in Nanning, China being stared at and feeling like a goldfish in a bowl and having to mime what you would like to eat in every restaurant you go to :) Was great fun

ARRGHH!! Booked 3 weeks ago for Easter during their 'sale' for £398... Hot!

BTW, I hate HK, even though I go back somewhere between 2-4 times a year.. Hot, humid, crowded, noisy, horrible air, blah blah blah... Great food and shopping though! :thumbsup: Good for a holiday, bad if you live there...

I flew to HKG cheaply last year, and then I flew to Cebu (Phillipines) for a weekend there, and it worked out to be approximately £150, which included a stay at Plantation Bay.

Good offer for HK though

It seems ironic that you don't like HKG, yet you go there 2-4 times a year! :-D

Don't feel bad - that's not such a big difference. It's not like it's half the price now.

You got a good deal. If you always wait for a better deal, you never do anything.


We wanted to go with BA, as they fly jumbos, but the price was £2200+. Just looked and that is just over £1400 now :( Oh well, that's life. Nowt I can do about it now.

don't you just hate that feeling. esp. in this climate. think of the extra spending money you could of had. Oh well no point crying over spilt milk.

i'm waiting for Virgin to come out with an offer to Los Angeles for about £275?!
#25
It used to be free dunno why they gave it back to China.
#26
BBC = British Born Chinese I presume?
#27
Hey guys thanks a lot for your advice there, much appreciated.


P.S., are the emoticons messing up for others?
#28
Does anyone from Virgin know what the other destinations are going to be for the rest of the promotion?

You wanted to pay all that premium just for flying in a jumbo? 747's are so 60's and outdated now. It's all about the B777's, A380's and A340's. All of which are twin aisle aircraft with super quiet and effecient engines offering a 3/4/2 or 3/4/3configuration (yes. I'm a avaition geek). were you expecting to be seated in the upper deck or something? these are mainly reserved for business or premium economy classes on certain airlines.

My parents keep telling me not to go VA. They reckon the planes are not as stable? I go back (another BBC here) every 3 years, but they go back several times a year, but have had bad (ride) experiences with VA, and now will only fly BA. My mum wants to come back with us, but is reluctant to go VA. That's why I'm still looking at the BA website, to check the prices for her!!

Oh, to answer an earlier question, yes there is 2% Quidco. However, it's on the actual fair only. And as the price is made up of approx 50% taxes etc, then it's more like 1%.

I did exactly this last year and was really cheap..
Check out Cebu pacific airlines At a quick look HK > Manilla return is about £85.

Before anyone else posts it... Cebu pacific are a budget "no frills" airline. As long as you don't expect much you won't be disapointed :roll:

I know you don't get, if you don't ask, but is this likely to work. There are usually so many t&c's with flight tickets!!

Pretty good price! We tend to go in november every three years (the missus is a BBC!). Always flown cathay and tend to get £350 prices. So still holding out!

But i concur, Hong Kong is the BEST city in the world! Love it! And dont get bored there like i do in new york! Its just sad that the exchange rate has plummeted. I wanted another bespoke suit! And Sam's Tailors made me the best suit ever!
#38
very good price, usually around mid £400 the cheapest we paid, may recommend the parents for this.
#39
I just came back from 5 days in Hong Kong last month and flew Virgin (but Upper Class you know) and the A340-600 flight was OK. There were a few bumpy bits but nothing major. The IFE on Virgin was very good with 50+ on demand films. The food is hopeless though - even in Upper.

Hong Kong is fun. We stayed in Mongkok and there was plenty to see and do with all the markets etc. The weather was around 20C so freezing for the locals but nice for us. Some rubbish things though:

HK Disney is not great and is very small. The Disney hotels are NOT worth the cash.
Don't expect to come back laden with cheap stuff. Most electronics/cameras/phones etc were a fair bit more expensive than they are in the UK. The only cheap stuff was the fakes in the markets and there are plenty of them!

Oh and see if you can blag your way into the Virgin lounge at Heathrow. It's spectacular.

I am looking for a virgin las vegas deal.
How good would that be!!!
They prob wont be able to beat the £330 that you can currently get from London for June (although that includes 1 transfer). I would happily pay £400 for a direct flight!
