Me and some friends are trying to go to Thailand during december this year, but it seams like a huge problem. I have finaly booked a ticket in january with BA flying ARN-LHR-BKK for $670 and then we have booked a flight with TG from BKK to HKT for $100/each. This is the cheapest ticket we could find. Do anyone have an idea of a cheaper flight? To fly in December seams totaly impossible, unless you pay $2000. Pls let me know if you have any ideas of geting to Thailand in December under $1000.

A seat on a charter flight in December cost apox $1000. With hotel $1400. I guess it's the same price from UK. Now we going in January instead. But it's a long way to go thru LHR. I tried TG from STO to BKK but the cheapest ticket in Jan cost $1400. I have a lot of poinst in my eurobonus with SAS, but they have informed that it can't be used nov-jan to Thailand due to the large booking. So much for points.

I've found 988 USD round trip to Bangkok with SWISS. You have to connect in Zurich. I don't know if that's good for you or not. You are right, the prices are quite high during those times, I've checked with both SAS and THAI.

Hard to get seats to BKK?Tell me about it!
I work for AY, so I know what kind of demand there is to BKK. I think we should lease that ex- CityBird MD11 and increase our frequencies. If we just could get some good slots, we would have no problem getting a good yield on it.
And hey, good luck finding those €900 seats, you'll need it!

Sk945, actually if you book 3 or 4 airlines with the cheaper fares and put it on their waiting list, there's a chance that you'll get your seats no problem... Just because the seats are "fully booked" it doesn't mean that all the people who booked have already "ticketed" their bookings.
