How's this for flight prices to Europe from Australia

11 Nov 2009 calabreseboy said

Just wanted to get some impressions on this quote for flights I got to Europe from Melbourne, Australia.<BR><BR>Doing the Berlin to Budapest Contiki on July 24th, 2010.<BR><BR>Flying Emirates to London a few weeks before the Contiki begins. Return to Europe (Arriving in London, Departing from Greece back home) for $1900. <BR><BR>Only downside is I have to pay for the airfares in full by November 20. Should I, or do you all think I might be able to get a better price further down the track?<BR><BR>And I'm not really prepared to fly with the cheap airlines where I have to pay extra for my luggage and food.

    hi thats pretty good mine where just over that around $2000 flying 31st may and returning 45th july in to london and out of amsterdam from sydney. You can wait till later and there might be some specials, but i wanted to book my tour and wanted to be guaranteed to be able to get a flight at the right times and not too expensive. 1900 is good for flights from australia and u are going in peak time so the other side is the flights could fill easily and the cheaper tickets do sell first!

    That’s cheap. I’m flying over in August from Melbourne and it’s going to cost me $2600.
    I’d book it !!!!

    I think that’s a great price.
    I got the same price flying Qantas in June and have to pay tomorrow but I think the prices have now gone up.

    I would book that for sure!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    That is a decent price but to be honest im not sure on flight prices and sometimes you can get good deals when they bring out specials.

    Air Asia is a no frills budget airline that flies to London from Kualua Lumpur. Only a couple of days ago they had a special on. You could get flights to KL from Perth for around 140 and then a flight from KL to London for 160. Total return airfares was around $600. Obviously you have to pay for all meals and drinks on the flight and the leg room is pretty crappy. But might be one to have a look at if you would rather save somem oney on flights and put up with a little less luxury on the flights.

    Hey thats a good price I am flying with Emirates from Brisbane to London then Athens to Brisbane for $1805. They do bring deals out but you probably won’t get much better then that.

    My brother went with Air Asia, the only thing is they don’t fly to London. They fly to a smaller airport in England south west a few hours from london, so if you just want to go to London, I would book with a bigger airline that will take u into london Heathrow or even Gatwick airport
