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.
