Pretty awesome price here for a flight to Tokyo which includes hold baggage. All flights involve one stop in each direction in Moscow As always, it is a good idea to take out comprehensive insurance in case of flight cancellations etc...

Example dates (likely to be many more!):
22 Nov 2019 - 14 Dec 2019
26 Jan 2020 - 01 Feb 2020
31 Jan 2020 - 29 Feb 2020
02 Feb 2020 - 08 Feb 2020
09 Feb 2020 - 15 Feb 2020
21 Feb 2020 - 07 Mar 2020

These are great prices! We just booked direct flights to Tokyo with BA/JA for November for about £1200 return through BA directly.

We paid a bit extra to avoid a 3rd party agent because a lot of them seemed VERY dodgy. Several have absolutely terrible reviews highlighting really shady behaviour. We nearly booked through one called Globehunters, which are far from the worst reviewed, but discovered late on that they hide hold baggage costs from the purchase review page. It's not even on the expanded 'details' tab, only a tiny suitcase icon that says 'baggage included' when you hover over it, without specifying what kind of baggage. We called to check and turns out hold luggage is NOT included, despite it being a long-haul flight. Apparently they have a policy not to disclose it clearly up-front and they call you right after you've booked to tell you this, at which point it's too late and they charge you extra for hold luggage. That's really scummy and probably catches a lot of people out, and when I told them that they basically said 'meh'.

TL;DR = be careful who you book through, check everything meticulously before paying and if possible just book directly with an airline.
1) Who is "jetabroad"? Make sure you check reviews before booking.
2) Aeroflot have a dreadful record with lost and damaged luggage via Sheremetyevo.

In know someone who flies back to Japan every year and love Aeroflot losing her luggage. It means she can travel home without dragging a 20KG bag with her and they delivery it a day or two later. if going for 6 weeks that is fine but for a short trip?
I hate how you can accidentally give positive karma on hukd too quickly and can't change it afterwards no more.

I saw the price and the words Tokyo and Skyscanner but didn't see the companies and flight operators before giving karma.

Maybe use Trip.com (the 2nd option in the image in the OP) which costs just £8 more. These are the only two options unfortunately.
Crazy cheap prices for Tokyo, even more so, when all flights to Japan, double in price, for the 2020 Olympics, in just over a year from now!!

I’ve always wondered, what’s the difference? What makes a ‘bad’ option and a ‘good’ one? Unfortunately (or fortunately!) I don’t have the ability to travel much so I’ve never had the chance to find out

Generally it is based on the review score and how well known the company is. For example well known companies such as Opodo or Lastminute are generally ok to book with. Some of the lesser known companies may have poor (or close to non existent) customer service amongst other issues. Before you decide to book, like others have wisely suggested, I would recommend reading some reviews of the company in question.

It is hard to give an exact answer to your question however as there is no clear cutoff between a "good" and "bad" company, and people also have very different experiences with the same company.

On the plus side, Aeroflot has a good track record of not being shot down over the Ukraine.
Great Deal!

Just not sure about flying with Crashy Burny Airlines (Aeroflot)!
We flew Aeroflot last year on a deal found on here in September 2017. 251.00 return it was and no lost luggage or complaints regarding Aeroflot at all

I've done that flight. Just be aware that if you have not pre-booked your seats for the return flight you will not be able to do so via the BA or JAL website after the event (I tried to do it whilst in Japan to no avail although 24 or 48 hrs prior to the flight it is FOC). The JAL HND/NRT - LHR flights are typically busy and we ended up unable to sit together.

Thanks for this OP! How did you find these dates? If I use the “whole month” option on Skyscanner it barely shows me anything :/. It would be great if you could share your mastery with us

Being very much an outdoor kind of country the only real issue with November- Mid December which were the earliest dates listed is that it is a bit dark. Also December is getting a bit cool.
Not sure about travelling by Aeroflot, Russian planes have a habit of not making it to their destination.

Funnily enough I do just use the "whole month" option! Skyscanner is very very temperamental though and I often have the same problem as you with the blocked out dates. I find using a different browser can sometimes fix this however.

Absolutely great advice. We booked multi city recently direct with lufthansa from edi to Tokyo, then nagasaki back home via Tokyo next year cherry blossom time on premium eco for about 1700 and includes seats and baggage for missus and i (there for 4 weeks hence returning from naga).

It was only about 100ish cheaper to go 3rd party for premium but at no point does it mention what seat you'll be in so you may find out you then have to pay extra for the seats and ends up costing more. And then you may have an issue if the company goes bust.
jacks flight club are quoting £289 for the same Tokyo flights on Aeroflot - as per email of today
Just booked paris to tokyo on aeroflot for the Easter holidays April 04th - 15th 980 for 3 of us
Anyone flew with a 1.5 year old on Aeroflot? I'm very tempted as this might be the last time I can afford Asia for a while...
Jack's flight club has ripped you off, disgraceful! 😏

Service. The cheapest prices on Skyscanner are automated booking websites who provide no actual service and usually don't answer the phone or respond to emails, thus the bad reviews. For roughly a tenner more one can book with a decent company who answer the phone. And for a little more may provide 24 hour telephone assistance.

The OP just posts the cheapest price he can find because that's what the punters desire. He also posts hand luggage only fares on long haul routes for the same reason.

My advice is that anybody who sees a really good Skyscanner price calls a proper agency (with 24hr support), and asks what price they can do it for. It'll be £10 more and that will be £10 very well spent.

Cheap because with Aeroflot you have only a 50/50 chance of making it there. Check their safety record.

Check their safety record properly. All of their international flights as far as we are concerned will be using Airbus/Boeing.

The issues were with ageing Russian built planes.

The only crash I can see using Airbus was in 1994 when pilot allowed his son to fly the plane in the cockpit. What flights are you using to confirm your stance that safety is an issue on an international flight of this nature.
