CX: OSL-HKG r/t in PE for US$770

Available direct from Cathay website - I was looking at March departures and early May returns in 2018. I fly this route a lot, and this is the cheapest I've seen in a while.

ITA / Google flights won't let you search that far in advance yet.

Available throughout the year; it's also a bit cheaper from BGO/SVG: BAs other Norwegian destinations.

Nice fare! Google flights shows availability in June then again in September. Its 13K miles so if you credit to AA thats $2600 in EQD. Seems bookable via Expedia.

Nice find. Thank you OP!

Is there any routing without airport change?

I'm struggling with getting LGW/LHR transfer. Anyone managed to book something like OSL-LHR-HKG-LGW//LHR-OSL? Expedia only returns CX-BA flights when I search for OSL-HKG, when I split it into OSL-LHR-HKG it forces premium economy on SAS which brings the price up considerably.

e.g. https://goo.gl/flights/Gmmu (actually even cheaper, around USD 740)

Definitely try to get bulkhead in CZ PE. Angle roller with pillow (pack one from home) on top & stretch out legs nicely.

My experience LGW/LHR transfer not bad. Buses about $30 if memory serves. Train about $20. 1-2 hours.

Anybody know if CX does any equivalent of BA's POUG offering paid upgrade to J class and if so, what a normal LON>HKG upgrade offering would be?

It seems that Cathay Pacific offers only upgrade by miles or paid by cash (fare difference).

Could I Pay to Upgrade?

This deal been around for over 2 months - I booked exact route last week and upgraded to J on outbound with cash extra £350.
Called CX direct for this - the Polish call center girl was shocked at the cheap price...

So total £900.

Outbound:
OSL - LHR - LGW - HKG (Business)

Inbound:
HKG - LHR - OSL (Premium)

$982 is the lowest I'm finding now. QR has a business class fare on this route for US$1182, so even if I could find the $770, I'd probably opt for the QR.

Hi can you please give an example of the QR flight for $1182
The cheapest I'm seeing is over $1800?
