I'm intending to book a flight HBA to LHR in April.
The cheapest flights I can find through the flight sites is around $2000.
However, if I look at Mel to LHR the cheapest is around $1500
Even if I took the boat the cost to get to Melbourne and back is only around $300 while flights there and back are around $250.
So, for the inconvenience of being responsible for my own baggage I can save around $300.
I guess my question is, how come the 'flight sites' can't find this result?
