    all classes or just economy?

    Sadly look like it is just M class though there are some fares in business sub £2600. The deals ex the EU are still some considerable way ahead of these business class fares.

    BA have retained my business for my next BKK trip with an ex-Europe fare, sub £2,000 plus full flexibilty with changes. Yes I have a schleeep into Europe and back, but the added benefit of being able to change the flight timings once departed, makes this ticket for me, very worthwhile.

    Could have gone from London (on BA) with no changes permitted for £2,100 & I was tempted by the KLM fare of £1,350, but this was from AMS and KLM would not link the UK to AMS fare.

    Cathay in business was £3,000+

    The only change I may make is to try and use avios + upgrade voucher nearer my departure date – then refund my original ticket.

    Life is still good at 51.

    Martyn. I booked the same with KLM for a trip to BKK ( but eventually on to Malaysia), for £1070 ex AMS. (Around Euros 1,430)

    Yes, KLM was more Ex London by £500.
    So, as usual, I booked a Cityjet return Ex LCY £99.
    KLM return from LHR was also £99.

    This return Business Class on KLM “Z”, does enable a change for a fee of Euros 200.

    Often i save huge amounts by booking BIz seats ex Europe, and merely take a £100 return from London.
    It also saves much in paying The UK Government its £350 + tax for long haul flights! Fundamentally, I object to this, so my long haul flights will be ex Eu gateways now…

    Booking two seats fro BKK with KLM Ex AMS for 2, has saved over £1,900 on this trip! They also have recently changed the flight from an old 747 Combi, to the new 777-300ER!

    Marcus, by using ex-Europe and being able to change the ticket, allows me to use the 4th sector, i.e back to starting point in Europe, as my first sector for next trip.

    Most ex Europe BA tickets (cheap business class) are non changeable, but there are one or two departure points (countries) that allow changes and no penalty refunds.

    Can you post the details of the flexible fares. I can only find restricted ex EU with 200 euro stopover fees in LHR. As a result tend to dump the
    Sat sector but would prefer not to do so.

    Thanks

    ex Milan – cant find the fare code but the fare rules which I automatically save as part of my E ticket confirm:

    “No penalties unless otherwise specified. Refund without penalty permiited at any time. Unlimited changes without penalty at any time a change is a date / or flight / or routing change”

    ……and before my spelling is checked “permitted” was spelt with 2 i’s as above!

    Binman62 – found the fare codes – the Milan to Heathrow is J class and the Heathrow to BKK is I class.

    Similar fares from Germany and other ex Europe did not have the same flexibility.

    Hi MartynSinclair and Binman62,

    Just want to add that BA offers TLV-LHR-BKK-LHR-TLV return in I-cls at USD2400 nett on a fully flexible ticket.

    If you buy this ticket (and travel all 4 sectors) you would earn 560 tier points (I think). Not bad for USD2400 + taxes/charges/surcharges…
