Prices / LH C -> HKG

Hi all,

just checked prices on LH website for my flight in April (26.4 - 2.5.) to HKG and couldn't trust my eyes...
Last november i got a ticket for 2760 (ex FRA) - now same route 3700??



Any suggestions on getting something cheaper? Starting in MUC or BRU would be ok for me too.... (or another airline ? - direct flights only...)

thanks for your help!

Your main problem is that you want direct flights. As already mentioned by the previous poster, adding a connection in Europe significantly decreases the price.

The cheap fares for this time were already gone as of October last year. Remember, that there is the world's largest gift trade show in HKG at this time.

Though not direct flight, Qatar offers affordable C fare to HKG ex FRA, MUC for about EUR 2300, and you earn miles on M&M.

QR has an unbelievable J fare ex-ATH for about € 1200. They are now also adding F service to the DOH-HKG route. Previously it was only a 2 class service.
