Long Stopover Emirates

Recommended Posts

Been searching skyscanner.net for some cheap flights from Manchesterer to Bangkok, in March.

 

Most of the cheap ones sub-£500 tend to have long stopovers on the return leg, most common one is two stops, one in Hong Kong 20hours, and a normal few hour one in Dubai.

 

Would i be eligible for free hotel in Hong Kong?

 

Would i be able to get out and viist the city in this time?

 

I'm kinda thinking that it would be a nice addition to my holiday, little day trip in HK :-D

 

Heres an example itinerary i pasted from the website

You will not get a free hotel. Airlines only give you a free hotel if a flight is delayed or cancelled and you are forced to stay overnight. I can't comment on visiting Hong Kong as never been.

Loads of indirect flight from heathrow for £450. Only 2 hour stop over. I don't mind indirect flights saves you at least £100 for couple extra hours traveling? That's about 5000 baht or 5 st on Soi 6!

Why not travel National Express coach to Heathrow?

 

I would avoid Emirates.... they squeeze in extra seats to enable cheaper fares.... check out their seating plans online.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Great to save money on a flight but as flights & changing Aircrafts give me Jet Lag I do like direct if the price is ok & not stupid.

 

Now that would make a good thread guys here is what I saved on a flight to Bangkok & here in pics is what I spent it on. :Think1:

 

 

:Wassup1:

Enjoy it all & be nice.

I waited 24 hours in Dubai. No problem. Exchanged some money and take it like start of holiday. Jumped into some bars. Drink some beers. Check internet. Food. Little sleep. And I almost missed my plane.

 

Or you can take it like cheap charlie. Sit on the chair, watch into the floor and slowly painfully die cause of boringness.

Agree with you there mate. I do fly indirect but only with small stop over 3 hour max. Got to get a balance between saving money and travelling times. No way would i sit in an airport for 24 hour stopover like meisy.

I prefer to fly Emirates between the UK and BKK rather than spend 11 hours or more in one go! Especially in economy, not so bad business!

DBX is almost exactly half way so is an ideal break in the journey for me.

 

Usually the connections are very good, just 2 or 3 hours in DBX! I have never known a 24 hour stopover! The money you might save on the ticket you will probably blow kicking your heels during that kind of long stopover anyway!

 

If you have an Amex card then you can use either of the 'Marhaba' business lounges in DBX free and then you get shower and hot food/drinks free of charge. (Not any of the Emirates lounges though).

I would pay a bit more and have less of a layover if you want to fly from manchester.

Hong Kong is a great city, a quick trip over to maccau and the casinos is fun, But. If you purpose is Thailand don't waste all that time for a stop in Hong Kong for a few hours. Hong Kong is not cheap and by the time you pay for the train to the city a hotel room ( which are not cheap and small ) food and other things, you should be able to get to LHR with change.

getting similar long layover times with emirates ex newcastle.

 

only answer i can see is too look directly on emirates site gives 4 pages of flight time choices and pay approx £100 more for shorter layovers of 3/4 hours rather than 9-23 hours.

 

a train/bus from northern provinces adds excess time/cost traveling to the cesspit that is heathrow did it last time as flight was uber cheap at £299,

but returning to lhr was looking like any mid-east hub but without the warmth.
