Found 31st Aug 2011
Just seen this in a email from travelzoo. One hell of a deal, must be the cheapest way to flight to Hong Kong ....

Return flights to Hong Kong from London for just £308, return. Choose between a range of dates in OCT,

****UPDATE**** unconfirmed by myself but.....

The flights at this price are shown as only being for 10 days, but frenchdevil10 has found that,

"you dont have to use their dates if you dont want to. you can mix and match dates they show. for example you dont have to stay for 1 week. you can select the 13th of october. and come back on the latest november date which is 9th of november and its still 308 pounds for a 4 week stay if you want."

Also, jedthefrog says,

"there is also an offer for HK hotels, up to 75% off....prices from £26-00........very cheap for HK........source hoteltravel.com
Go to Travel Zoo website, click on "Top 20"........13th. item (or thereabouts) on list"


SO you could grab a months holiday with £308 flights and cheap hotels !!!!! Wish i could go now!

What a stonking deal.
Hmmm, anyone know anything about Royal Brunei airways?
Hot, but only thing that puts me off slightly is the flight time... 22 hours in total including transit.

that really is a bit too much... not sure about Royal Brunei either
anyone flown with them before?
Flew with Royal Brunei to Singapore a few years back, they didn't give us the full flight details, Took off from Heathrow - Dubai - Brunei - on ground for about 5 hours then back to Singapore...Not the best flight i've had - but was very cheap..

Oh and its dry aircraft ( Alcohol free !....)...22 hours to Hong Kong doesn't make it any good for a weekend jaunt !
My son and D.I.L live and work in HK....she is flying back at the end of September to be a bridesmaid...£600 for the flight,she is only here for 4 days.
So that price is Hot
The flight goes LHR - DXB - BWN - HKG then HKG - BWN - DXB - LHR on the way back, good price, but around the houses!
cheers I'm planning to go back to HK soon for family gathering! haven't been back for almost a year i miss home!

That is one hell of a route! Well if budgets your things, and you have a interest in visiting airports for a few hours... then this is a roasting hot deal for you
ppl better think twice .. i clicked thru and found the flights is a 2 stopper .. i take over 20 hours and you can only pick certain date range and only allow you to for around 7 days .. far too many restrictions tbh
I've flew with Royal Brunei all the way to New Zealand. They are fine, all their fleet are ex-Singapore Air 777s with full VOD service.

Great airline, great service (and great pens that they give away on flight!)

Only thing is that it's a dry flight but you can BYO.
Excellent spot, and a great price, BUT......you missed a bit!

Hmmm mildly tempted, may be unemployed in a couple of weeks, could do with a holiday..

Though a 7 day one with 20hr journey time e/w might be too much too handle...
Hong Kong is a great fun place to visit!
Oct 29th to Nov 9th seems OK - there for 9-10 days
tempted to book this, went to HK earlier this year and loved it. Want to go back but its the 22 hour flight which i am not sure about as we flew BA direct....
Voted hot because there's probably no cheaper way to get to Hong Kong!

Looks good if you're on a real budget but for my money I'd pay the extra for a shorter journey - particularly if I was going for a short trip.
damn...too long a journey but at this price its a steal!
So, what's wrong with HK in October? Is it monsoon season, a ridiculously hot month, suffering plagues, about to go to war or be invaded. Anything specific to October that might be less than fun for a holiday?
It's bad enough with a direct flight of 12 hours, 22 hours and no Booze no thank you

We went right at the end of October a couple of years ago. It was nice - warm and humid, but not unbearable by any means.

The answer is to carry a hip flask...we can bring them back into fashion. Especially with the rise of extremism in the world

Very cheap for flights to HK, so voted HOT for that reason but a 22h flight journey is more of a torture than a holiday. October is just a non-peak season (not holidays, no special events etc). The weather is probably quite pleasant in October, not too hot and not too cold. I think the monsoon season is in the summer.
Flew with them to Hong Kong 10yrs ago, was good but dry as already mentioned. When we did it we could use the stopovers as breaks on route, so if you want to go Brunei and Dubai as well that may be an option if the ticket rules allow. You will probably have to add the additional departure taxes if you have stopovers in Dubai and Brunei.

red hot deal

This isn't remotely true. Check on their website - It's full price!
Hot! Anyone got any cheap hotel recommendations?

Even perhaps some guides to share?
I flew with Royal Brunei to Australia. Was ok other than the lack of alcohol.
Can we go to brunei instead? might make a good holiday for £300 and only 1 stop in dubai
good deal might go

come up october is not not in HK! it's actually a pretty cool and chill month at that time I'm a native Honkie so I know the weather there. Worth going to the Peak at that time, or disneyland/ocean park, or even find some more hot deals around HK!

Thats amazing price wish it was this price for late september
RB are fine to fly with .. planes are a bit old but not terrible, food was actually pretty good. Lack of booze is an issue and it'll be the same if you stop in Brunei itself unless you stay at a hotel with a 'lounge' ;-)

why do I feel like just leaving everything and taking a 300 quid flight to hong kong? haha

Hmm so you can.... Will have to wait and see if I lose me job

thanks! i've updated the post with your findings. actually looks like a awesome deal now!!!
Can I stay in Brunei for 2 days and spend other days in HK?
Great price but I've never heard of the airline and wouldn't touch with a barge pole!

I've flown with them to Dubai a few times.
Fairly bland aircraft and crew.
Not bad experience overall, but not great either.
