Last minute flight deals?

What ever happened to them?  It seems that the best prices are always 2-3 months ahead of time.  And anything within a month is the highest price.  It's not as if the planes are always full either.

I booked mine a week before flying on 10th Nov from Heathrow,Paid £408 with Gulf air not the cheapest but liked the times just over 14 hrs both ways! Return flight is april ,Checked the same flight a couple days before and had gone up to £560.

I done this for the last couple of years and worked for me!

Yes, I agree. We fly BKK to MLA regularly and the longer you wait the fare usually goes up.

Just a heads up. Omanair are discounting flights by 50% if you book before the 10th on this month for flights valid through till September.

Well have just been on their site and prices identical to what I paid 10 days ago for March. Not saying you're wrong but prices not reflecting 50% off

I booked Thai back in June for £440 for my 26 Dec trip. A kings ransom if I were to book today.

I have also booked Qatar for £320 for April.

and again in May £350 and stop-overs up to 2 hours all from London Heathrow.

 

And Qatar Airways is available for next October at £380

Well I put my ticket in to the company 2 weeks ago and they wanted an excess of 300 omani rials to upgrade. Saw 50% yesterday. Told the office and now my excess is 0. Online business both ways was 298 omani rials. So maybe just from Oman then.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
