Very very good price. Well done OP.
Need that price for Melbourne in January
Over a 5 hour lay over in Guangzhou. Best buy a lounge pass to kill some time.....not a bad price TBH
Always London airports
Amazing what a difference a month makes - I'm paying £900 to fly out on Christmas day!

I'm from NZ so have made the trek a few times - anything below 30 hours transit is good and normally cost a bit more. Some flights will come up as over 40 hours long! 27 hours is this quickest I've ever done it, so these flights are actually pretty good overall. With China Southern Airlines if you have a transfer of over 8 hours they will pay for you to get to and stay in a hotel in the city.
Be warned, their seats are tiny. For long-haul legs, i would not recommend for European guys. Been on one before. Though for the price is good. But unbearable one leg over 13 hrs, kiliing !!!

No better or worse on the LHR-CAN route than all the a loads of other airlines who fly the 787 Dreamliner, as its now standard 333 configuration (it was designed as 242 but only one airline flies it in that configuration).

I’ve done this route on CS and it was perfectly acceptable (economy is economy). Food, drink and service was very good. I’d fly them again without hesitation
I've use them from Amsterdam to Auckland and it was decent. Normal economy seat/sizes. I hate airplane food but their's was palatable. Service was friendly but they speak limited english.

Their transit in Guangzhou is a bit boring though as the airport is quite empty but you can get free hotel stay if it's a long transit.
Nice price but it's Singapore Girls for me
I just booked LHR to WLG using skyscanner/Lastminute for last 2 weeks of October and though I got a bargain for £840.
Nice find, have some heat

Are you sure (they're girls) ?
I went to Auckland last year (March 2018) and flew via China Southern. Had an 18 hour layover, so a transit hotel free of charge was laid on in Guangzhou.

Never in a million years would I ever do this again. Flew in around 06:45am; people requiring transit visas are made to wait in a small section to the left of clearing customs. A woman with little English took our passports, and waited for about 4 hours to get a small card granting visa approval. Once you clear customs, getting to the transit hotel desk is an absolute nightmare due to the poor signage.

Got to the desk to find the shuttle bus to the hotel I had requested (a nice one) wasn't due for an hour. I'd been on a plane for 12 hours so desperately picked anyone close by, got there and whilst OK wasn't an incredible experience at all. Food is OK, decent entertainment options. Legroom is next to minimal, if I were you I'd strongly get an aisle seat so you can stretch a little more out.

Well yeah, they’re the biggest.


And it's the Capital.
Flew to Nz with air New Zealand and stop over in HK , didn’t mind if it was few hours as was really happy to come off the plane for a bit, it was few years back flying in June means winter in NZ paid double this price , great price just on time for summer

I've used them to get to Thailand and China. They're an alright airline, obviously budget but not as scummy as some of our budget ones.
Emirates for me, they gave excellent service, food and drink, economy comfortable and very good entertainment

Never seen one as nice as on my first SAL flight
I flew with them from Christchurch 3 weeks ago. Found the London leg of journey fine (seats a couple of inches bigger, entertainment worked).

The first leg from NZ was pretty terrible. I was stuck in a middle seat, the temperature was very warm, and leg room was very small. I am a seasoned flyer but this felt very claustrophobic. I stayed in the bathroom for 15 minutes just to stretch my legs.

Breakfast omelet was good, the evening meal pretty inediable (not sure if no choice or I was unlucky had to have what was left). The only snacks they have is a slice of tomato in 2 slices of unbuttered bread. When you don't like the meal, you eat what you can get!

Entertainment works if you watch the same movie as everyone else (for me it was the avengers). Other movies where stopping every 30 seconds.

On London leg food was about the same, entertainment worked, and seat seemed slightly bigger. Perhaps it was just the footrest was simply not pushing against my shins.

Staff seemed pretty good, trying to be helpful but limited English.
