This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I have been looking for flights to New Zealand and these seem a good price for Business Class it is about the same price as Premium economy with Cathay Pacific. The dates I used were 2/11/20 to 30/11/20 but there were other dates the same price. Most dates for this route and class with Korean Air are approx £3500

The outbound flight only has a short stop in Seoul. The inbound flight is a much longer stop but it is overnight so I am hoping to be put up in an airport hotel which I rang the customer services about and they say it isn't guaranteed but they can request it for me. I have read other reviews that say they usually confirm in a few hours if this is possible.(they said 48 hours)

You can book for less with Opodo but I prefer to book direct after a bad experience with expedia and flight bookings.

Looks like similar deals for Sydney too.

Bit rich for me my budget is £2553.00 and not a penny more
Qatar, Emirates and BA are all around £4000 so how is this voted cold ( -4 at time )? Oh, of course, the hukd purists that are offended by business class flights and 5* hotels and regard the application of a cold vote as an exercise of delicious power within an otherwise dull existence. Quite sad really.

I can see £2342 on China Airlines business on the 2/11/20 to the 29/11/20. Two stops though.

Still, a good price. Heat.

Is that booking direct with the airline? came up at over £3500 for me!

China Airlines is the Taiwanese airline, so head and shoulders above any other Chinese airline.
Economy options available too

I love Korean Air though, and I'd choose your flights over the ones I've found for one less stop. Also, an overnight in Seoul would mean I get to see my friends. 5 hours in Taipei means I don't get to see my friends there.

22 hours on China Eastern though. The Geneva Convention would probably classify that as torture.
£711 for Thai Airways
Is this from the UK?
Flying from LHR or LGW wherever that is

Labour hoters.
I know this will be an unpopular opinion but I genuinely have no idea how people justify the price of business class. Just suck up the shorter legroom and have £1500 extra to spend when you arrive!

My only justification is that after a flight to LA I said that is only half way to NZ not sure I could go through that again for the other half of the trip. My husband is always badgering me to book business class as a treat so I thought if I’m going to then this length of flight is the time to treat ourselves. I doubt it will ever happen again unless I get a taste for it

i am pretty tight and i would not pay for anything unless i thought it was value but for long haul it is worthwhile paying for business class. i am not a tall person so the leg room is not even a problem for me, but sitting in a seat for the long flight with kids screaming and kicking the back of your seat in the middle of the night stopping you sleeping, in economy is a terrible experience to start a holiday. by the time i get there, i feel i have been through a 'get me out of here' experience and just want to go home!

in business class you get more space, no screaming children kicking your seat, a bed to sleep on, a tv to watch and lots of food and drinks on demand. at the stop over, and start airport, you go into the business lounge where there are free food and drinks. you are chauffeur driven from your home to the airport and you check in quickly through priority check in. you are chauffeur driven back home when you return, so you get a lot more for your money than just the flight experience. if you can afford it, why not start your holiday experience with a good start? it will make the holiday a lot better in my opinion.

This is a good price but is pretty much their year round price (excluding holiday high season) so not really a "deal" as such as you can get it any time.

good airline though and a good business class although the Sydney route has the better A380's over the 747's that go to Auckland.

Also worth noting the stopover hotel is always included as part of the flights if you book this trip for the way back and if going business class its 5* at the airport, pretty sure they even throw in £50 worth of food vouchers too.

Seoul is a beautiful city so well worth adding a free stopover if you can

P.S China airlines are abolosutely rubbish. if you're considering spending over £2k on flights spend a bit more and go Korean

Flew LHR to Auckland and back from Sidney three years ago using this airline.Flight back involved an overnight stay in S Korea paid for by the airline.Cant complain with the service and there was four of us in the Business class seats from Sidney to Seoul.

Because it's not a particularly good price. Keep your eyes open and there are often much much better fares.
I've never paid over £2,000, and it's been as low as £1300 in the past couple of years.

It's not about the legroom for me, it's the proximity, or lack thereof, to horrible people.

£1500 buys you a lot of earplugs, books, and games consoles

Korean Airlines is a good airline, and £2500 for LHR - AKL is a very good business class fare. However, if you want to save a few quid get a cheap return flight to either OSL or ARN and then you should be able to get a business class seat for less than £2k.

A couple of years ago I got a Qatar airways deal OSL - MEL for £1350, but those days are long since gone.
Just had the overnight stay confirmed in the 5* Grand Hyatt in Seoul so that is also a bonus 😄
At 2.5k there is no way I am accepting a stopover.

I was actually wanting the stopover so I can have a good nights sleep in a hotel at the half way point rather than 24 hours non stop flying. There is always going to be a stop somewhere between UK and NZ!
