Just to emphasise, and to avoid and frustration on itamatrix (my own fault as I missed this point), this only works when booking for 2 people.

Any current good deals from UK/Europe out to HKG in discounted J, other than BA ?

I am tied to specific dates in November and BA and does not have any really cheap seats available. on the longhaul legs. Nor do the AY flights ex LHR work well for my dates.

Best I am finding at the moment is RJ ex LHR at around 1,800. Good price but the return has some rather rather painful stopovers (I have done it before, so know what is involved).

Thanks for this. AY actually have the same fare ex LHR, but timings do not work for my dates. I will check DUB but assume l will get the same issues.

Do we know what the conditions are, which class this books into, and whether a break of under 24 hours can be made in London in either direction? (Forget that as I have managed to do it for myself - and it allowed LCY -JFK for a wee bit extra!)

Sorry to bombard you with questions.

Standard EU-US I class fare, no cancellation, no changes, free routing with 2 transfers in EU and 2 transfers in US, up to the maximum permitted mileage via any TATL JV partner, connections up to 24 hours fine. All dates until end of August.

Flyertalk at it's finest - one asks and one gets a fulsome answer in two shakes of a lamb's tale.

Do we have any idea when we have to have booked by? Sorry to leep asking what may be daft questions.

Oh - and BTW - you are now a Mucci. I just decided

There is no defined date in the fare, and as far as I can see this is definitely just a blanket copy of a SkyTeam and Star Alliance fare so I guess it will only be around until one of them pulls the plug, my best guess, today and tomorrow only.

No idea what period in November you have in mind but perhaps these work (examples only, but available on many more dates)

CDG - HKG on Royal Jordanian for 1670,- euro (but looong flights)

https://www.google.nl/flights/?hl=nl...53*.EUR.166953

or OSL-HKG on Finnair for 1751,- euro (not the best flight time on the inbound but as I said more dates and times available)

https://www.google.nl/flights/?hl=nl...21*.EUR.175021
