Been on secret flying for the past couple of days.

From what I can tell it involves 3 connections with airlines I've never heard of and takes 30 hours each way.

So if you are looking for total bargain, go for it.

When you go to the link to pay its not the same price

Was available on Spanish and Italian versions of websites. Was on Flyertalk forums a few days ago.

I think they keep fluctuating, as has changed a couple of times in the last 15 mins or so.

The long haul carrier is Tianjin airlines, who recently started a direct service from Gatwick to Chongqing and Tianjin. Nine year old A330. Tianjin are expanding with several international routes and are a skytrax 4 star airline. They are backed by Hainan Airlines who are a 5 star airline and have several international services. It probably won't equal a middle eastern carrier in terms of service but it should be perfectly acceptable.

Know someone who is flying with Tianjin airlines tomorrow evening back to China so might be able to comment more early next week.

Yeah. Failed to identify and give credit to Secretflying in the post oO

Cold! 3 of those 7 days will be spent travelling in economy and the jetlag will be brutal. I wouldn't do it they paid me!

also be careful with OTA you book with, Momondo is notorious for suggesting dodgy travel agents. Regardless, it's still a fantastic find so HEAT :D!

Can't rely on these dodgy airlines.. Probably have a bad safety record. The food is also probably not nice..

You're better off flying with Emirates or BA ..

COLD. Sorry

Outstanding price.

Hainan airline is one of the worst airline in China, at least the domestic flights are horrible and foods are terrible too. Never tried Tianjin airline but since you mentioned it has lower grade, I would rather skip it at all if money isn't more important than life and experience for you. I'm Chinese.

Already had pleasant experience with Hainan, even domestic. Better than CZ

But, unequivocally correct. I won't fly domestic in questionable states, unless it's absolutely necessary. As someone who has spent a lot of time flying, it's always worth paying a bit more for safety, peace of mind and comfort.

For the sake of a hundred quid or even two. I'd rather pay the money and get there in a third of the time. You lose nearly a day for the sake of saving a couple of hundred quid.

I understand this site is for deals. But, some things just ain't worth being a tight get for.

Can't comment on the flights, but Xian is definitely worth a visit. It's an interesting city and the terracotta army is amazing.

go to Blackpool and enjoy a takeaway while you're there - you'll save a fortune

Afternoon,

I'm new to FT forum. Would you mind suggesting where I look for the discounted flights?

Thanks

It's the price of a slow boat to China rather than a flight!
oO

Got really sick when I went to Beijing this year. Everything tastes like sh*t, food quality is really poor.
I do want to go again though since I paid so much for a 2 year visa, but don't think this much flying/poor airlines is worth it.

I want to go jiuzhaigou national park one day, looks lush.

To keep is simple, just look at Mileage Run Deals sub-forum, lots of deals are posted daily (but also stops for days). You really need to know the airport codes and you need to act very very quickly before the deals expire.

Happy flight hunting

Am sat in an apartment block in a China town, (no idea where) just been built for over 500000, with 40000 inhabitants.
I love this place it's as mad a bag of frogs, which was very strange when I saw said bag.... I am booking if I can get this deal. Hot hot

great place for travel;)

I have found £179 return flights from Gatwick to Guangzhou in southern China in October. Check on Skyscanner or Cheapoair.

It's a shame it's not to Beijing (where I was hoping to go) and unfortunately the cities are rather far apart. However, for that price it's sorely tempting...!
