LHR-BKK MS J 1040rt

Not the greatest airline but given it's a *A member it still seems like a pretty good fare.

Available through OTAs. Sample dates 26/9 - 04/10. Looks like it books into Z.

I suggest you do some searching yourself. This doesn't show up on google flights but does seem to show up on kayak and momondo. I would recommend using gotogate.co.uk (where I found cheapest rates) and using Wednesday departure and Thursday return.

Here is a link to a kayak search

Hasn't GoToGate been reported as unreliable? GOTOGATE

They might well be unreliable if you need to make changes or cancel tickets. But if you simply wish to make a straightforward booking, and you are confident you are not going to want to change it, then this, and most other OTAs, are perfectly fine.

I've flown Egyptair recently, and it was perfectly fine - kind of like flying a big US carrier in terms of service, but better food and less attitude.
So - great deal, actually. (And earns 200% with some FF programs)

For anyone considering this, also look at Oman (with Apex suites on all sectors, brand new terminal, great lounges and food etc) CDG-BKK-LHR for 1230, can be found on sky scanner. Evening departures and 2hr connections.

Couldn't find a link for the Oman deal, but use something like Skyscanner or Kayak to search rather than Google Flights as from memory the discounted pricing is only released to some OTAs and not to the GDS, so Google Flights or ITA won't find it.

The deal is also valid ex AMS where flights to BKK will cost you much less by searching Kayak you will find good availability in Z class for 886 via OTA or 80 more directly from MS website. Bit higher prices ex FRA/MXP/LHR
Sample dates 27feb-13mar 2019

It was multi city, but when I look today the price has risen back to 1550 or so (on my dates 11/12 anyway)/

Thanks this is a great fare and been around for some time now. Last month they had a 30% discount over one of the weekends which brought it down to 950 (but you had to do a simple return to CDG for that price). Also worth bearing in mind you can also return to MAN. I booked a nice double open jaw last month: CDG-KUL//BKK-MAN =)

Wow thats even better especially for people like me located in UK regions since a return flight to AMS is often cheaper and much shorter than the journey down to LHR!

Just booked AMS-CAI-BKK return in J for €916, 16-30 Jan.

That'll get me 26,222 points in SK Eurobonus and *G, so thanks to everyone for this deal!

Last week i found a LHR - CAN for $1250USD i forgot to post it ..... But seem like MS is with a few destinations on sale.

This week the LHR CAN is around $1.850USD, the best thing about this route is that all is done in 777 300 angle flat beds.

Egyptair is not as bad as they post, the seat is not perfect, i did smell someone smoking in 1 (out of 4) flights, they dont have alcohol and the IFE is not the best is the market but is OK...... Besides this, the food is good, they FA are really nice with you, the planes are clean and the service in general is great. Will flight with them again no problem..... If the ticket is at least 25% cheaper than others.

The lowest I see is EUR 1020. Was this an OTA price?
