    Jet Airways is starting Mumbai-Manchester flights on November 5.

    Its website promoting a both fares from £389 return and a free baggage allowance of TWO pieces of checked luggage (each of up to 23 kilos).

    There may also be special rates for premium classes on this route. Best check with Jet or travel agents as they may have promo offers.

    It may not be new … but I also see Jet has now emulated Etihad and will accept bids for upgrades. Check for details.

    Air France needs all the revenue it can get right now.

    It has launched ‘Oh LaLa’ offers which must be booked by September 17.

    These deals are attractive because they are available from the UK right across the Air France network.

    They are offered in all classes with the exception of first. And as can be seen the prices, now displayed on its website, are keen.

    Air France does not name specific travel dates and blackout periods. All the airline is saying is that these will vary.

    https://www.airfrance.co.uk/GB/en/local/resainfovol/meilleuresoffres/ohlala_deals.htm

    It is only fair of me to remind you that the current industrial dispute at Air France remains unsettled. No further strike dates have been announced at the time of writing. But please bear this fact in mind.

    I think these refer to domestic flights in FR with AF. Might be useful for someone.

    Possibly of even less interest is this one from Sixt :

    every holiday comes to an end. But this is no reason to be sad because Sixt has the perfect offer to get back to daily business: Book a car in Saudi Arabia now and save up to 20%*!

    This is a fantastic thread, and very useful dependant on the airline and your destination ……
    Sadly if ever the word “FROM” personified disappointment its in airline pricing policy.

    Spent 30 minutes this morning researching my next trip to HK from my local airport. Using different links to various airlines claiming to have sales on proved fruitless.

    BA ‘s sale came in at double QR’s price.
    BA neared the 1K mark ,QR ‘s Skyscanner price was under £480
    Even odder, by using Google flights I found a BA & Finnair combo (EDI-LHR-HEL-HKG ) for half the price of a single BA routing via LHR !!

    It’s a Eurostar promotion … but I’m placing it here as Eurostar considers itself as an airline.

    These promo fares are valid for groups of two or more. Valid London to Amsterdam/Brussels/Paris on selected dates in the coming months.

    Perhaps ideal for a pre-Christmas office outing ?

    OK, this may not suit everybody, but for me this is terrific value for money for my next ex-Europe ticket & thank you to my superb TC, who some of you know.

    LHR-AMS-LHR-HKG (overnight my choice)- BKK-HKG-LHR-AMS-LHR (first and last sectors positioning flight on separate ticket, all in C

    • £1704 (both tickets)
    • 520 avios
    • 77,000 avios in total – if CX flights count for double as well.(double avios offer)
    • = 17 Y sectors in Europe economy
    • Or 8 sectors in Club

    All on that dated product, poor service, rude staff, overpriced, home at horrible T5, rubbish lounge BUT, very comfy seat for sleeping… and with a 9pm take off, instead of 6.20pm (for the 380 service), virtually guaranteed 8 – 9 hours of sleep (says me hopefully)….

    Does anyone know if the BA double Avios promotion includes Avios earned on CX? 70,000 have a rough value of €425 so is significant, if paying your own airfare. My feeling is that it would not apply to CX as this is what the e-mail that I received said:

    “From today, until the end of the year, you can collect double Avios on your next ten flights.
    So whether it’s visiting loved ones, a last minute work trip, or sneaking in the last weekend away of 2018, your time away will be even more rewarding.
    This includes double Avios on all domestic flights in the UK and within southern Africa, as well as British Airways flights operated by our partners, American Airlines, Iberia and Finnair when travelling between Europe and North America.”

    I had been looking at Hainan Airlines ex UK, but CX would have the most suitable times. BA would also work.

    Interesting to see Martyn’s comments re BA seats. Flew back from HKG on Monday on CX A350 and I thought the seats were better than BA for sleeping, but not as good for sitting. We all have different backs and posture.
