Another one I have booked DUB>LHR>KUL>HKG>LHR FOR £356.00 which I thought was good ! Including BA B789 & BA A380 in there !


In May I'm doing MAN-DOH-BKK_then BKK-DOH-LHR-MAN for £339.... and 3 x A380 legs....

The fare itself was £33... and £306 Tax

That is the cheapest I've ever paid to fly to Thailand.

Rather ironically the best value ticket was my most expensive....

A 4 continent oneworld Explorer ticket in First Class for about $13k per person in 2008
SFO-LHR-DXB-LHR in BA First
LHR-VIE-LHR in BA Club Europe
LHR-HKG-BKK-SIN in Cathay Pacific First Class
SIN-NRT-SIN in JL First Class
SIN-SYD in BA First
SYD-CHC-SYD in QF Business Class
SYD-LAX in QF First
LAX-JFK-ORD-DFW-ANC-DFW-RIC in AA First Class

Other notables:
-A $700 return IAD-LHR-IAD in BA WT+ that I upgraded to Club World with Avios both ways.....was then operationally upgraded to First both ways. Amusingly I'd just received a nice Xmas bonus and was going to payup to First at the airport!
-$450 BOS-STL-SEA-ORD-BOS in AA First Class
-The shade over £5000 for Concorde one way LHR-JFK in 2002 is now invaluable....(admittedly my father paid this for me)

I don't think mine can be beaten....Ryanair MAN/DUB/MAN for two pence (yes, that's one penny each way) when they used to have such crazy offers. I didn't pay for seats (free seating in those days), baggage or anything on board. Two flights for just two pence, all in!

Wanted to fly the A346 so best chance was IB MAD-LHR but at £200+ single that wasn't happening. But booked XRY-MAD-LHR picking up the CRJK +A346 £55. Bargain and duly booked.

Also looked for PMO-STN with FR but was €110. Looked at AZ PMO-LIN-LHR €44 and both flights were MD82's. This was in 2008

I flew this year Volotea for €1.00 (BOD-SXB) in one of their express sales. I had booked it a few months ago. So in case I couldn't fly it, it wouldn't be a huge loss. :)

Two new airports, 1 new aircraft type (B717) which I was eager to fly and one new carrier.

Not bad for the price.

In the mid-2000s, I flew LAX-GUA on Spirit airlines in an "Ocho Loco" sale for 8 cents each way. Yes, 8 cents! Ticket was about $75 all in with taxes, fees, etc. Grabbed some friends to come with me who were amazed at their $8 each way fares. They got ripped off, LOL!

LHR-EWR-IAD-LHR with UA in January last year, £105. Lowest price I've ever paid for a trip across the pond! Although a compensation voucher might have something to do with it as they (UA) messed up with my trip from SAN the previous year. Got me my first trips on a 764 and a 77E so an added bonus there.

The most memorable one would have to be EDI - BKK with Qatar Airways return for...... GBP 350... it costs more for a return rail journey from Edinburgh to London.
