MH J: TPE-LHR o/w (GBP 531) 2017 dates only

I was looking for some o/w J tickets out of Asia for next year and noticed this deal from MH for next few weeks (Nov & Dec dates only with limited seats). Not sure if it was posted before but I thought I would contribute my first premium deal post to One World alliance airline.

21k TWD for biz (fare class Z), 300TP on o/w, that's less than 1.8p per TP

Great find ... very good price. And definitely only seems to work o/w.
Great positioning option to pick up one of those cheap QR flights ex ARN, OSL etc

Something cool I just noticed is that you can set it up as a multi-city fare if you prefer to use the KUL-LHR in 2018, meaning travel only needs to START before EOY. So you could fly just the TPE-KUL leg in 2017 and then utilize the LHR leg any time in 2018 that you might need it. And the KUL-LHR can be booked in the new A350 that starts flying to LHR in January. Seems a bit nicer than the A380.

The GF link won't populate the search so you have to re-enter on the MH site, but it does take it all the way to the payment screen with the same price. Availability seems open on just about any day in 2018. Heck of a deal, thanks OP!
wawert and oh_lol like this.

Welp, scratch all that, its now pricing about 4 times the original amount. Seems to still be some availability on Expedia links for the 2017 flights though.

I was just able to price one TPE/KUL on 10 Dec and KUL/LHR on 23 May at TWD21,564 (US$715) on the MH site so what NomadNick is suggesting still seems possible.

Great option!

Ah very cool! Must have just repriced on some of the dates I was looking at. Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks OP, nice fare. I happened to be going to TPE in Dec, however, sadly availability for Z is scarce....and that needs to be available for the TPE-KUL sector if not everything gets pushed into the higher classes....
Am still considering if I should pull the trigger on this. Can anyone let me know if
- after flying the 1st leg, can I change the date for KUL-LHR without a reprice (the fare rules does not address this - only before departure)
- do you think more Z will be released on other dates - although I am seeing that the Biz cabin on other dates seems to be filling up...only J available.

Thanks in advance..
Cheers!

On the MH site the FARE CONDITIONS section states (highlighting mine):

ADULT
Taipei - London
Change conditions
Penalty may apply
Prior to Departure of first flight
Changes*: Not applicable (See reissue conditions)
Reissue: Allowed with restrictions
Penalty fee for ticket reissue between: 2500 TWD / 2500 TWD (at today exchange rates 2500 TWD / 2500 TWD)
Maximum Reissue penalty fee for entire ticket: 2500 TWD
Failure to show at first flight
Changes*: Not applicable (See reissue conditions)
Reissue: Not allowed
After departure of first flight
Changes*: Not applicable (See reissue conditions)
Reissue: Allowed with restrictions
Penalty fee for ticket reissue between: 2500 TWD / 2500 TWD (at today exchange rates 2500 TWD / 2500 TWD)
Maximum Reissue penalty fee for entire ticket: 2500 TWD

Failure to show at subsequent flight(s)
Changes*: Not applicable (See reissue conditions)
Reissue: Not allowed

However when you go into the full rules under PURCHASE CONDITIONS:

CHANGES
ANY TIME
CHARGE TWD 2500 FOR REISSUE.
NOTE -
DATE CHANGE FEE - TWD2500 PER CHANGE.
---------------------------------------------
FOR CHANGE MADE AFTER 29JUL16 FARE DIFFERENCE

The paragraph with 29JUL16 looks like it has been carried over from an older fare and probably doen't apply here, but .....

That's the source of my confusion.... So any confirmation will be nice on what they mean here.

Unless I'm misreading the rules TPE-BKI-KUL-LHR should also be valid for a few extra points/miles.

Yes, but again availability is very scarce on this.. and with only < 2 months before this fare ends, this makes it very difficult....

Would be nice if they extend this fare into 2018..

Yes, but from what I understand you can only stop in either BKI or KUL, not both
