LX: UK-Asia c. £1.500

Swiss currently has some attractive fares from the U.K. to Asia, London to Honkers is around £1,480, some other U.K. airports pop up for twenty quid more. Heathrow to Narita via Zurich on Swiss, then onto Seoul on Asiana (returning on LH via Munich) is around £1,515.

If you prefer OW I'm seeing 1650€ in November with Finnair LHR-HEL-ICN, all on the A350, so lie-flat all the way. Good connections too:

This is a good deal coming out of the UK. I must say though, never heard the term "Honkers". Must it is a UK thing......

I think these LX ex-UK fares were about £1k before Covid.

You'd have to be bonkers not to go to 'Honkers' at those prices

Seemingly a million years ago, just out of university I worked for a few months at a branch of STA travel - and all the staff would refer to Honkers (HKG) and Bankers (BKK) - thanks OP for the memory!

LX also offered some great First Class deals pre Covid. Hope they come back.
