Run a check through www.kayak.co.uk. This will give you an idea of what the prices are like.

I have been looking out for cheap flights from London-BKK for a few months now and the cheapest i have found is around the £500(british pounds) mark. (thats with Singapore air, Catay Pacific and british airways)

My friend however got a flight with Jet Airways for £300 return so you could check them.

At the moment due to the ash cloud i am sure there are deals to be had, as many people will not be booking flights/holidays until its a definate that the planes will be flying.

hope this helps Gemma

It's nearly always cheaper to fly indirect, usually via one of the gulf states or as mentioned via India with Jet. Kuwait Airways are usually really cheap, but Etihad, Emirates, Brunei, Royal Jordanian are all worth a look. Sometimes it's also worth looking at flying from a european hub, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris etc... although the weakness of Sterling against the Euro makes this less cheap than it once was. Also look at Malaysian via KL especially if your going to Phuket.

Direct flights are operated by Thai Airways, Eva and BA/Quantas, both Eva and Thai can have good offers.

Sites like kayak etc will give a good indication of what's out there as already mentioned above

Look at netflights.com

The choices, and Paul has givnen most of them, will depend on her budget.

You don't indicate when you are travelling, and when your coz is leaving the UK.

The direct no stop flights are the easiest, but often the most expensive.

We find the middle eastern airlines, Qatar, Emirates, Etihad, Kuwait, Gulf etc, offer good value. Although your coz will have to transit for a couple of hours, or as many as 8 between flights.

We have also done trips via the other European hubs, or India or even Malaysia.

Lots of choices, but its going to depend on cousins budget and when you are travelling.

Flights ex the UK tend to be expensive what ever the time of year.

Thanks everyone for your quick and great replies. She is flying out in July and i think it possibly coincides with your school holidays (17th July departure date) so will forward her the link to this thread and she can do some research!
