LHR-Asia/Oz for 1100/1500 on MH
 
EDIT: it does seem the links I provided 'time out'. So simply go to the flight+hotel booking page and select the destination and dates you want. Then select the "I only need a hotel for part of my stay" option and pick a date somewhere. Then press search.

Deal is still alive [02JAN-09:47-AMS time]

A flash sale by ebookers.co.uk, found by Cymro and discussed in the Premium Fares thread over at the BA part of this forum. You will need to book flight+hotel (simply take one night in the cheapest hotel). All dates work but ebookers won't let you book anything past 26/11/17.

EDIT: It seems that August departures are slightly more expensive (around 200 more to Oz and 300 more to Asia). Have only done a very quick check though.


For example book LHR-BKK with one night hotel added and you will find a return for 1132. Her is how this works.

Asia:

LHR-BKK is 1132

LHR-HKT is 1147

LHR-DPS is 1128

LHR-SIN is 1340

SGN is 1330

Australia:


LHR-SYD is 1495

LHR-MEL is 1487

KUL-OZ in on the new A330 product (not all routes) which is excellent. LHR-KUL is on the A380.

Be advised that all these examples have a ONE NIGHT hotel booking included. Not a multiple night booking. :)

You can route it to almost all direct MH destinations ex KUL. HKG doesn't work, neither does ICN, China or Japan.

Last but not least a good tip:

Happy new year to Cymro for finding this great deal in the first place.

So this deal works only today. No idea where this is reported by the way.

Deal still works today.

Thanks for the heads up henkybaby.

Booked a trip in August to SYD to watch the V8 Supercars for 1590 with one night at a hotel included.

Great deal!

Also if you want extra avios book through the avios.com e-store. Hotel bookings get 5 avios per 1 spent. It mentions a reduced rate for hotel+flight bookings but doesn't state what rate.

xxpert Jan 1, 17 7:48 pm

Have been trying to book this for a few hours now and everytime after I get to the hotel page there is a red message that reads "there are no flights for your selected dates" I've tried several dates and keep getting the same error.

any advice?

Should've done Bathurst in Oct vs SMP in Aug!

xxpert Jan 1, 17 9:56 pm

Disregard previous post. I played around with the dates and found something in April LHR-DPS for 1263 with one night at a 5 star resort.

thanks for posting this spectacular deal !!!!

henkybaby Jan 2, 17 1:42 am

The flash sale by ebookers is still going strong. It did not end this morning like was predicted.

You can also do India this way, but you would be flying on QR. Starts at 1228...

k4rt1k Jan 2, 17 2:31 am

Nothing short of epic - booked! Thanks for the flag!

Still trying to convince a group of friends to get Bathurst booked :D

therewardconcierge Jan 2, 17 4:03 am

Has anyone managed to circumnavigate the 26-night minimum stay requirement?

When you go to add a hotel, even when you select "I only need a hotel for part of my stay", it limits you to 26 nights.

strichener Jan 2, 17 5:29 am

Deleted - Being an idiot, forgetting that you land the day after leaving. Only one night required.

Thanks for this offer. I'm looking to go London to Mumbai in Feb in business class. I clicked on the link and filled out details but comes up with economy class deals. What am I doing wrong?

I'm new to all this (first post, so be easy!)

visaria Jan 2, 17 6:06 am

Ok, i sorted it out...but the cost is quite high, about 2.5k...was hoping for something less than half that or am i being unrealistic?

world4 Jan 2, 17 6:07 am

Booked LHR-SYD for November 2017. 1500 return. A380 then A330.

Cashback 5%, already tracked. (You can get higher but am travelling today so easiest for me with Quidco).

Found on both expedia uk and ebookers uk. Initially had to change dates a little from Friday to Saturday but easy to find availability. And of course one night's hotel (backpackers).

Thank you OP.

Nothing. Seems the India deals have gone. At least I can't find them anymore. Sorry.

EDIT: they do still work for June for instance. Haven't checked many dates but Feb and March seem out.

EDIT 2: In feb you can do a Flight Only to BOM on Gulf Air for 1335 or Etihad for 1589.

Was searching for 2x J return for KUL-LHR for the family, couldn't find many dates in February - most flights ended up pricing out at 1800-2000GBP/person. Any tips on how to locate these sale fares?

This deal is for LHR, not KUL, departures.

DangerM55 Jan 2, 17 5:05 pm

Has anyone managed to login to manage their booking on the Malaysia site? My booking ref is still not recognised (although according to ebookers my ticket is issued and confirmed)... Or is there an alternative site I can login to choose seats etc like I was able to do with the alitalia farce?

Thanks. Is 1335 a good price? Or would you expect something cheaper?

Thanks again.

Neither can I - the best I can find is ~1,225 in March.

Prices vary by date but I can still get 1128 in October for instance. Only searched a few dates.

The Manage My booking section on the MH website, is only for bookings made directly on their website.

For seats etc, you'll need to call MH or ebookers.

Lhr-kul-syd-kul-Lhr First/business combo fare 2850.00
 
Currently sat in the First class lounge at KL, on this (to me) great fare to Sydney.
outbound A380 crew were fantastic, food was some of the best in flight for a longtime.

second leg on new configuration A330.

prices out at 1072.00 outbound and 1780.00 (ish) inbound.
dates throughout the year.

no sat night stay,I left the 2nd,returning the 7th.

​​​​​​This pricing upwards of 6k+ on other days.

Qatar Airways Jan 3, 17 5:09 am

On MH website
 
Can be found on MH website.

cheaper than Business class.

dannyrado Jan 3, 17 6:13 am

This is a lovely deal. Managed to price it all up to around 1.5k for the Singapore GP in September. That was including a junior suite with lounge and breakfast for three nights, in a nice looking 4.5* close to the circuit...

Pity I have no friends, or at least, I have no freinds that can afford a weekend in SG. 😂

rossmacd Jan 3, 17 8:09 am

Is there an easy way to search for fares to DPS (on ebookers), rather than having to go through the hotel selection step first, then to find that there is "no availability" for flights when you select one of the hostels?

you may check the flights on GF first, if price for your selected dates is approx 1500-1600, then you move over to ebooker to book with a hotel packaged together to reduce the price as to OP stated.

Thank you ^, but I cannot get any prices for DPS on GF in the range you specify - all are 1,800+ :(

Unfortunately, I guess you have to play with the dates on ebooker one by one then, get yourself a beer/popcorn handy :)

Do you have access to EF? If so, it should work as long as you find Z availability on the L/H portion. S/H seem to book into C.

For reference: I had somewhat buyers remorse on the account of QR supposedly launching a great sale in a few days time.

I called Expedia.co.uk who I booked through:

a) absolutely no changes or refunds permitted
b) Expedia.co.uk only allows refunds day of purchase, not within 24 hours. Expedia.com offers within 24 hours
c) As mentioned previously upthread, it appears as if YQ is omitted - cash refund of the taxes would have been ca 220.
