Cheers for the info when you sent it over Bodds, I did look and noticed they'd gone up once dates were announced

Ended up getting a return flight with Korean for £851


Hi. Also flying with Korean. Was due to fly Seoul to Gatwick. However, Korean have changed their schedule. This means a night in Seoul courtesy of the airline on return journey. Also now flying into Heathrow which is better for me!


Nice one, I fly out Heathrow and back into Gatwick at present leaving Auckland 28th March

That is what I was due to do. However my travel agent contacted me as Korean Air had changed this schedule. Funny that you're still doing this. I was on flight KE130 on 28.3.13 to Seoul. Then KE909 to Gatwick. It is the last flight that they changed. If this is your schedule then I would check.

As we're on the same flights/same airline I would imagine the same hotel. A few cold ones in Seoul await. It would be rude not too!

I worked in Hong Kong many years ago. The boss of our local sub-contractor use to go to Seoul for his hoilidays. When I aske him why he said because it was easy to find a holiday wife.

Enjoy your night on the tiles and just hope that Dear Leader doesn't invade while you are there

Whilst I have 'promoted' these Qantas fares, I have never actually booked one, though I have used the company involved before and know of many others who have flown on them. That all changed today when I booked a friend from Adelaide back to London October-December this year.

I had never tried pricing the trip inversely before and I found the the 'savings' to be even greater.

The Qantas fare ADL-SIN-LHR/LHR-MEL-ADL priced up at A$1798 on the Qantas/Expedia websites. The exact same routing cost just A$1030 on the third party website with the removal of all fuel surcharges.

Quite remarkable and may well be of use to any Aussie based Englishmen looking to come over here for the Ashes next summer, though fares won't be available until October for flights up until the completion of the test series.
