Return direct flight from Heathrow to Bangkok with Eva Air £414 skyscanner

44
Found 5th Jun 2016
The cheapest return flight in November was for £380 (with decent connections) with a Chines airline so for the extra £35 you get a direct flight. An airline with a good safety record and good reviews. My dates are-;
5/11/2016-19/11/2016 for some reason the link says 20th, just change the date.

With all the deals coming out of secret flying recently (£177 return just last week to KUL) this isn't s deal. In actual fact id say £400 is the going rate.

A good price for a direct flight .

£400 isn't the going rate for a direct flight and the secret flying deal has expired.

Where did my comment go?

The point I was making is that every week flights to E/SE Asia are coming up. I just looked on Skyscanner and returns in Nov are coming up £280 with China Eastern, £303 with Qatar... What you've posted isn't a deal, it's actually expensive. No other month this year is more than £340 return.

£400 for a direct flight is definitely not the going rate. A flight with a connection,yes.

If £400 isn't a great price then maybe you can point us to a cheaper direct flight with a comparable airline? Personally wouldn't touch a Chinese airline with a very long barge pole, and am happy to pay a reasonable premium for a direct flight that is likely to be 4 - 6 hrs quicker in each direction.

Have you ever connected through Doha? Who cares about a direct flight when it shaves money off the price. I've flown China airlines many times, also Eva, no problem with either. You pay £400, I'll keep paying £100+ less with a leg stretch in Doha.

Nobody is stating that a cheaper indirect flight is bad.The fact remains you cant find a cheaper direct flight.

Sorry but I'm on a time limit, only 2weeks of work. If I was retired I would definitely get a connecting flight and probably go for a month, don't know about the wife though.

Oh and the cheapest for my week with only 2-3hrs connection was £380 with similar flight start times. Night flight going. Day flight back.

What if the flight with the connection left 4hrs before the direct? You're an amateur, probably used to flying Thomas Cook. You clearly don't know what you are talking about and probably wouldn't be capable of changing planes. That's what you're worried about

Sorry but have to work Saturday, as I said on a time limit mate and didn't want to waste my time in a Chinese airport. 15 hrs going and back. That's over a days holiday lost i n airports. Not for me. It's a balance between price and Convenience.

...Doha isn't in China....

I know. It's in the far east. Qatar. My geography is extremely good being a post man for 34 years thats why I'm working Saturday. I've all ready booked my flights but out of Curiosity Send me the flight details and price for my day of travel. Don't forget the earliest I can fly is 2000hrs on the 5th November and have to be back by no later than 2000hrs Sunday 20th November.

I'm not an amateur and this IS a hot deal. Show me a cheaper DIRECT flight LHR to BKK. The point is that some of us prefer or want to fly DIRECT as opposed to via stopovers. Qatar are a great airline but Doha is frankly, in my experience, a poor stopover. I've never been so bored. The duty free took all of 5 minutes to walk around and the food was worse than a dodgy backstreet knock off KFC...

Now have to make sure the wife doesn't book this....BTW she's Thai so that should go someway to show that I do know what I'm talking about...

Not a bad price

It's a Taiwanese airline, not Chinese (or Chines)

It depends on which context is intended. "Chinese" has different meaning, whether referring to ethnicity, culture, political or geographical context. All are ethnic Chinese, all are 华人, so in that context all are Chinese. But yes, Eva Air are Taiwanese.

It is the cheapest I have seen for a direct return flight to Bangkok. And November is a good time to holiday in Thailand as the cool season starts. I would like to see more of these sort of deals on here, So adding heat. But if you are happy to change at Mumbai or New Delhi I have found that is the cheapest and most date are available.

This is really good for a direct flight. I'd much rather a direct flight than stop-overs. Done both several times but unless it's business class I prefer direct even if it means paying an extra £100 or so.

I've flown with EVA before as well and it's so much better than some of the Chinese airlines. In fact, service was pretty good even compared to Etihad / Emirates.

The OP was referring that the next cheapest flight indirect was with Chinese airline not that Eva is Chinese.

Lot of hate on this deal..

Regarding the comments about flights at stupidly low prices, these are often mistakes and you will have noticed some of them you need to get your own flight to Milan - at peak holiday time, so connecting flights will be high.

For a direct flight this is cheap, but you can save over £50 by flying from a different airport and going in-direct. I personally fly indirect to Manila about 4 times a year and because i am flexible i can generally get a deal. The OP in a later post said he wanted flying times after a set time - when you have strict times and dates, you can rarely get the best deal.

I saved £300 by flying from BHX rather than MAN (based in York) - to get the best deal you just need to be flexible.

For a direct flight it's a good price if the flying times work for you, but you can get better prices by going indirectly and being flexible. By changing the starting date and end date by 1 day the price is £322 for indirect.

I was there in December and January and the airport is massive! Never got a lot of time to look about. I think Qatar offer city tours if you fly with them (and have the time) - but maybe that's business class?

Doha airport has significantly improved compared to 2 yrs back.

I paid this with the same airline back in 2004. It might not be the best price, but it's a good one - heat added.

I would love to see you get a direct flight for less . Also china southern have bad track record and delays all the time i would rather pay more than use them .
