Does that mean it is once again possible to book this as a day trip from BKK ?

Not so fast!

HK just announced their 0+3 policy, which is not as good as you think for casual inbound tourists. If you test positive at any time upon landing at HKG through Day 3, you will still need to go into isolation for 7 days (or more) until you turn negative. So before you start booking tickets, please be careful and do some research.

There's now a 0+0 policy in HK.

I am grateful for your post because I am now aware that this 1st class service is available, for a marked discount.

I am brand new to the world of navigating through airport codes and the ITA matrix, but willing to learn.

Are you able to check whether this offer is available (for a single trip from BKK to HKG) on a lockjaw flight from London (any) > BKK > HKG > London, either all Emirates (EK) or mixed operators?

I understand that flight rules specify whether this is possible, but at the moment, it's all greek to me.

Thanks in advance.

It's not possible to do this on a lock jaw as far as I can see. Good luck with your travels.

I saw this yesterday and booked a run for 2023, was around $1200 CAD. Hopefully I can use the shower and hit up the on board bar to cross this one off my list, seemed reasonable to try it since I fly almost exclusively on Star Alliance carriers (UA,AC,LH,SQ etc)

Thanks OP

Me too. I suspect the poster may have been referring to a one way fare.

I did this trip last November, asked the checkin employee in BKK to give me the return ticket so i could transfer in HKG (no COVID checks or anything). All OK, i advise everyone to do this route for the fun of it, i bought the ticket for 860 euros.

I did this numerous times pre pandemic and it is a lot of fun, current prices for day return in F are 899 USD & 607 USD in J, even in J it is good fun to enjoy the bar and the Lounge in BKK is excellent, so was the Lounge in HKG but that remains closed & the current lounge offered to F & J pax at HKG is Plaza Premium & it is appalling.. it is also a useful Visa run, EU, USA & UK citizens can stay in Thailand for 45 days Visa free, until that promotion ends in April, do a Visa run & it is 90 but that can only be done once 45 + 45

Well a B2B doing BKK-HKG-BKK is pricing up at 753.
Assuming that's bookable and I was looking at 27 May then off you jolly well go.
Whether you really want to do such a thing is another matter.
I think I might need a rest in HKG if I had really enjoyed the first leg.
