My husband and I are are looking at a trip to the uk in 2015. We are in our 50's and comfort is important, but we don't have a pile of money to throw around. We live in Mackay, so have to factor in another flight to and from brisbane prior and after the long haul.
I've been checking flights and have come down to 3 options.
1. Do the flights with cathay pacific economy and 2 day layover in Hong Kong both ways.
2. Do the flights with qantas and British airways economy class for the long haul with a few hours in Singapore
Or 3. Do a round the world in economy class, meaning travelling east to west all the way.
So far the furthest we have flown was from the Gold Coast to singapore with scoot and we had a good experience with them. We also flew air Asia from kl to singapore and that experience was like being on a local bus full of people and chooks, not so good. I'm opting away from the budget carriers in favour of a bit more comfort. We are looking at travelling in uk spring, so not peak season and am asking for others opinions and or travel experiences.
Many thanks to anyone who offers an opinion.
