Help: IR801 (NRT-PEK) Ticket Booking

Mon Jun 01, 2009 6:40 am

Hi all,

I intend to fly IR801 from NRT-PEK September this year, and I am having major difficulties in purchasing the ticket.

After calling the IR office in Tokyo, I found out that they do not sell tickets for this sector, only for NRT-(PEK)-IKM. They told me I have to get in touch with a local travel agent for this sector (e.g. Travel Nippon), but no chance to understand a word.

I found one travel agent selling IR tickets ( http://www.no1-travel.com ), but I have no reference for this agent, and they only accept bank transfer for payment. In general fares seem to be expensive on this sector.

Does anyone have any experience how and where I could efficiently buy this ticket?

Thanks for any suggestions.
Cheers,
Loran

Hey, I was able to do a dummy booking for IR 801 at Alternative Airlines. However, I was only able to get a seat in C on this flight. Make sure to click on the 3rd page of the air fares to see the IR flight. Good luck !

Quoting MHTripple7 (Reply 1):

Hi MHTripple7,

Thanks, but I can't seem to reproduce the querey. For some reason the flight does not show up in the list, I'll try again at different dates.
And fares are rediculously high, across all carriers.

Cheers,
Loran

A quick update, in case someone intends to do the same...

The travel agent I posted above is very helpful and quoted me at JPY 43,100, which is similar to KE and other fares. However the seats for September are not released yet and and he can not guarantee they will become available. Seems to be a bit of a gamble  Sad

Will post another update once this is sorted out.
