I've just been with my travel agent trying to get from Brisbane to Gothenburg (GOT) sometime around the 5-8 of January, and its just impossible.
Id like to go thru either SIN BKK or KUL because i want to meet a friend backpacking thru the area on the way.... my goal was to make it to GOT before about the 10th of Jan in order to catch up with a group of friends meeting in Sweden at this time.
It was impossible. I tried, QF, BA, SAS, SIA, THAI, MAS, AF, Finnair, Lufthansa, Austrian/Lauda, etc etc etc, and NOT ONE ECONOMY SEAT for days and days around that those dates.
If anybody out there knows how i could somehow achieve it (getting to GOT via southeast asia before the 10th of Jan,) Id really like to know. But i think it shows, the A380 is needed NOW!

One of my dearest friends is going to be somewhere in southeast asia, which is why im trying to go via there.
She's a fricken nutcase. Last week she just walked into the Aeroflot office in Oslo, (just walking down the street mind you) and decided to purchase a ticket to bangkok for 6 weeks there...she goes next week and will work her way around thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. Mostly thai and Malaysia...so I really need to get to Singapore/KUL/BKK if i want to try and catch her. Its not hard to get a bus from KL to SIN or something.
Otherwise i think i'd jump on UAL.... i wanna go skiing on the way back in utah anyway, because i can ski for free there, and stay with friends so its all cool.
But yeah...thanks for the emirates....the last catch is I can't pay for it until another week and a half.... I get paid several thousand dollars then, but not before then.... so does anybody think Im actually gonna get to GOT? Hell i dont mind even driving from Arlanda...swedish countryside will be nice.
