    Need some flight price help

    I need to buy a flight from Kuala Lumpur to London return for a duration of 1 month/5 weeks.
    Or Kuala Lumpur to Istanbul return (Same duration)
    It's best if it's in May. June is also fine.

    Cheapest i've found is KL-LHR-KL for £530 on Qatar Airways.
    Rep for someone who can beat that price.

    Also a second mission if you choose to accept it.
    As i'm buying the flight for another person, i see Qatar Airways shows a small box saying "The card used for payment must be presented at time of check-in or when collecting the tickets."
    So does anybody know if the passenger really needs my credit card when checking in? Or is there another way around that?

    Rep for any help

    That's not entirely true is it? I buy all my holidays [on card (not credit) for the airmiles] for my wife and when she was my girlfriend, fiancée etc. You just have to be present.

    I meant that i will need to pay from the UK, while the person will be travelling from Kuala Lumpur. So i wouldn't be present.
    So you are right about being able to pay for it if you are present with the other people.

    But it's really stupid that i can't seem to pay for somebody else online, i've taken a look on several forums and everybody has said that they get declined to fly and then has to buy a new ticket at the airport, i can understand it from a security point of view, but from a logical point of view, the airline is getting the money and they should allow it. :thinking:

    and to combat CC fraud. Similar rule dictates that most CC online orders must be delivered to cardholders address. :thumbsup:

    Try Airaisia.com



    They used to be really cheap, but now their prices are among the highest. They are still a bit cheap for short haul flights though.

    Emirates seems around £800+ for what i need.

    I need KL - LON - KL
    Or KL - IST - KL

    Actually it does not matter if its May, it can be anytime within about 3 months.

    No problem mate.
    Yeah i was hoping to go on the Malaysia version of the Qatar Airways site to try and get the price cheaper through the exchange rate, but it still says it's the same price, i'm sure i saw a thread on here about a month ago mentioning using foreign versions of airline sites to get it cheaper.
    Yeah i think £530 may be the cheapest, which is not a bad price. The only problem now is trying to pay for the damn thing.:thinking:
