Return Flights Heathrow to Hong Kong for £349 and other deals

Netflights.com have dropped their prices again to some top destinations around the world.

Other examples are:
New York £259
Bangkok £405
Dubai £259
LA £299

Having done a quick search for a couple of dates, this is about £100 quid less tha the next best site. Looks like a bit of a mixed bag on availability, but some are bookable right up to June 2009.

would seem strange to me that netflight should be cheaper than others, as to my knowledge they are just brokering flights for the airlines and hence normally you get pretty much the same (or sometimes cheaper) prices with other websites or directly with the airlines

ebookers.com are cheaper, for all of those destinations.

voted cold.

So you've checked ALL routes for ALL dates have you?

The first one I've just compared:

Heathrow to Bangkok 9th to 23rd December

eBookers £417.35
NetFlights £410.40

For good measure, I tried a couple more:

Expedia £414.40
Opodo £503.40

So as for your sweeping statement about ebookers being cheaper?? I've just beaten one of their prices twice in a couple of minutes!!!

Unfortunately, donks like you lose a lot of credibility posting cobblers without researching it.

Are you REALLY surprised that one company could be cheaper than another when offering a product???? Isn't that what this website is all about, if your logic is correct, might put HUKD out of business????

Let me know if you can find a cheaper flight, I'll have it!!!

so this is the £100.- difference you are talking about then?!

one should also mention that netflights i think are charging for credit card payments which you can usually avoid by booking directly with the airline (usually at the same price).
on the other hand you can get quidco which probably cancels out the card fees.

As I said, when I checked a couple of flights first time round, they were about 100 quid cheaper, I however did not check EVERY flight for EVERY route for EVERY date!! :thumbsup:

Just checked the Etihad website and they are about 5 quid more than the Netflight journey I quoted for Heathrow to Bangkok, although as you mention, I haven't taken into account cc fees or quidco.

Also, bizarrely, the Etihad site says seats are not available, but Netflights says they are!! :-D
