$1.1k for Qatar is not cheap. I just bought my tickets via direct Qatar website at $958nett for SIN-LON, ROM-SIN.
I used cheaptickets.sg to check the cheapest air ticket for the period I want to travel. Select the airline and price that I want. Take note the flight number and go to direct airline website to book the same date and flight number. Price should be around the same. I don't feel safe booking via third party website thus I did this. Paid using ocbc Frank card. With the cash rebate, my ticket is about $925.

$1.29k!!! Topup a little more can get sq during their promo period. I cannot take it to sit direct. Must transit so butt wont crack! However, I saw a post saying dreamliner 787 legroom not very good. A little disappointing.

I will be flying on monday (PH) 220am and reach london 1315pm. Return flight sat 2240pm and reach sg 945pm+1.

I notice that this new year a lot airlines are having promo: Qatar, KLM but the travel period only until mid year

Let say if I want to got around end of the year, normally they will have promo around which month?

Need advise from pro here

Thanks

I guess different people, different preference. I always prefer direct, I hate spending more time in transit in some airports making it even longer just to get to the destination.

SQ for my date and route come up to 2.3k..currently no promo.. 1k extra is too much for me..considering the better reputation airline, i got myself either qatar and emirates.

the cheapest i can get is sri lankan airline at 980 thou..

anything less than $1200-1300 is a good deal. not everyone can get tickets at rock bottom prices. just enjoy the trip.
