BKK TO LHR Why so expensive ?

Recommended Posts

My girlfriend wants to come to the UK for an holiday, when I checked Thaiair the fare was approx. 1,000gbp, whereas for the same dates from LHR to BKK was 510gbp even EVA was about 300 more.

 

Does anyone know why it is so much more expensive from BKK or is there a way around this ?

 

Many thanks

hard to understand airline pricing. demand, exchange rates, length of trip, which day you are flying, etc all make a difference. Usually flights out of BKK are cheaper than most places as a general rule.

 

I had two friends flying from San Fransisco on the same flight to Tokyo, one got off in Tokyo and the other went on to BKK after connecting. The one that got off in Tokyo was 1000 USD more than the one with the extra flight to BKK.

 

Anyway try this site, it searches other sites for fares. If you book out a couple of weeks you should get a price of around 530gbp, Ethiad seems to be the choice these days. Try adjusting the days also, you might get a better fare

I'd guess its about demand. I'd imagine there are significantly less people going BKK-XXX than XXX-BKK

 

So they can charge more for this.

actually eithad asked before i left home, once i showed them i had 3 month visa...no hassle...fly away son :GoldenSmile1:

sometimes i have an air asia ticket to cambodia if dont have a visa..all ok :Drunk_Party:

 

if you have a single ticket its the airlines responsibility to bring you back if thai emmagration refuse entry :22600584-Th:

I have been searching for flight myself leaving Thailand to UK and think the best price is Gulf Air but for me I have decided to go with Emirates as it is a better company. Total cost to BKK - BHX - BKK 760 GBP.

You do not need a return ticket to enter Thailand. A return ticket is required by the specific airline you have booked with.

If you travel with a visa then you do not require a return ticket.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
