I've had some great news - going to be an auntie!! - so will be looking to take a trip back to the UK in the early part of next year. Have been getting an idea on prices for flights around March and the best deals seem to be those using multiple airlines and 2 rather than 1 stop. Best deal we have found so far is approx. $1760 going from Adelaide to Sydney with Qantas, Sydney to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific and finally on to Heathrow with British Airways. Although it is a rather convoluted way round the one stop fares are about $700 per person more expensive.
So firstly - has anyone done this and how did you find it?
And secondly as it is with numerous other airlines would we have to clear customs at both Sydney and Hong Kong to reclaim our baggage and check in again??
It is only going to be me and hubby - no kids - so we at least don't have that worry.
Thanks in advance!
