[PREM FARE GONE] MH rt ex CAN to AKL/SYD/MEL/BNE USD1020 and up from jan19

Seems like a good round trip fare ex CAN as part of the current sale.. Prices are USD1020 and up for flights to the southwest pacific. AKL is strangely the lowest of all, followed by MEL, PER, SYD, highest BNE.. travel dates from Jan19 and onwards..

This fare books into Z class, min stay 2 days, max stay 3mths. Its a Nonref fare, rebooking with fee.

AKL has really limited availability, available end march and onwards to end jun. For better conections to australian sectors, try off peak days of the week..

currently showing A332 ex CAN, A333 to syd/mel/bne and A332 to AKL. Happy flying!

Brgds,

Great fare.

A bummer CAN-KUL at 4hr5min flight time is JUST short of 140 BA TP's.

Not showing for AKL but it's there for Australia. AKL is slightly cheaper due to NZ taxes. I find the ex-AB 332 to AKL more comfortable than MH's 333 to SYD/MEL/BNE/ADL tho. MH also flies the 359 to SYD which is slightly better than MH's 333.

It seems to allow a stopover in KUL without a HIP check (at least on the AKL fare), so there might be some date flexibility by stopping over for a bit.

Yah agreed.. for AKL flights, you get more availability by splitting the return leg.. Seems like the KULCAN leg can be a restricting factor on the return portion..

And for those searching, you get the availability in Apr to Jun for AKL.. None in Jan - Mar, July and after.

But but it may be that i have missed out ..

I just booked May 2019 dates for CAN - SYD at CNY 7801 (USD 1124), good find!

If having difficulty finding return promo Z class from AKL you can also route as an OJ and return via Australia.
Note that if crediting to QF returning via Australia will severely kill you SC earn.

I really wanna bite on this one. Its a good earner at 18K EQM and 2400EQD. And find a path to HKG/CAN is easy. I just wish I could find something to southern NZ (I know I'm being picky). You change the flight to ZQN or CHC and the ticket skyrockets to $3500.

I haven't come across any fares from HKG, what dates and city parings?

there were never any deals from HK but you could take the train HKG to CAN which is fairly fast now

HZMB bridge to Zhuhai and then taxi to Zhuhai or Zhuhai North train station is likely to be quicker than going in to HK..

Hong Kong and Guangzhou are only 119 Km apart. That said Baiyun airport is a fair way North of Central Guangzhou. And it is a lot of stops on the subway from Guangzhou South station - takes about an hour (58 KM!) but is only about 10 Rmb

Guangzhou North is less than 20 KM to Baiyun. Taxi will be well under 100 Rmb. But the area is less Western friendly than the other Guangzhou stations.
