i'm planning for trip to London 4-8 pax next late april - early may. Saw turkish air 850, Qatar 950. Should i book now or wait till nearer date?
850 - 950 price range for London is reasonable for full service airline.

If your intention for waiting is for lower price, I doubt it can get any lower.

Gatwick should be lesser airport tax

Hi all, I'm planning for my third trip to Germany next year Aug. This time doing an open-jaw into Berlin and out from Munich with SQ. The SQ's website shows an hour of transit time at Frankfurt. Is there enough time to run for the flight to Berlin?

Around $850 after including credit card fees, food and baggage. Pretty expensive for a budget carrier. Comparing this with a full fledged airline. Full-fledged airlines can accrue miles too.

For me, I can travel with less than 8kg, and don't need the food. But fare comparison wise, the fares aren't attractive. It's good for those who want to travel one way.

I just booked Emirates to Paris for $935. Wasted last week'/ Finnair's promo was only $870 to Paris. But ok la, at least the flight timing is better.

But I agree with what some of them advise, fly to another airport instead LHR, heavier taxes. Maybe can fly to Amsterdam, it's cheaper. But depends on your itinerary also...
