    Hot in HK

  •  

    I can never work out air fares, why is it cheaper Mel to HK than Sydney to HK?

    Is it the airport charges that the airlines have to pay?

    •  

      That's probably something to do with it! Also because Hong Kong is west of both Sydney and Melbourne they end up being relatively similar distances (7,381 km from Sydney, 7,427 km from Melbourne according to Google)

      virgin also flies direct from MEL

    •  

      Same operating costs.

      Might be a case of less demand or oversupply from Melbourne so they are trying to fill seats.

      Could also be a case where they are trying to squeeze a competitor off the route, or discourage a new competitor from adding a new service on the route. Knock the route down to loss making status so that the competitor gives up and chooses a route with better margins.
      Its a brutal corporate jungle.

      There is also the chance that the flights arent on equal timing. Time of day for departure and arrival makes a huge difference. In some locations early/late flights are impossible to get public transport so can add a lot of cost and hassle getting to and from Hotel. Different days of week etc.

  •  

    Direct flights too nice.

  •  

    There looks to be a greater selection of date on the Qantas website. Not as cheap though.

    Getting sub $500 out of Hobart on both Qantas and Virgin, ridiculous prices. Not as good as $400 to Shanghai, and not as many status credits, but amazing prices.

    •  

      Mainland China has the visa cost and hassle though, so add that onto flights and it evens out.

      •  

        agree, $100 visa is annoying when the flight is only $400- unless you only stay for 6 days i think it is?

        • +2 votes

          3 days for most, though a few including Shanghai do 6 but you are limited to the province. Must be going to a third destination, Aus->China->Aus does not quality, has to be something like Aus->China->Japan (Dont upset them with Taiwan).

          A few citys have special visa on arrival privileges at limited ports.
          Shenzhen 5 days approx AU$30

          Visa fees suck, but we do it to their citizens too so cant expect special treatment unless we extend the same free welcome.

      •  

        72hrs it is, but you need to have an onward destination, not a return from same port. Used that in 2013 when going HK-Shanghai-Seoul.

        Agree with the added costs, Ended up costing $135 for our visas thru a travel agent, but that included secure postage etc. Mainland China is great though.

    Is Bestjet reliable/trustworthy?

    Reviews not so great for them.

  •  

    what are chances of a bali flight sale? flying sept for a coupleaweeks. prices are so steep at moment.

  •  

    Prices will be a lot hotter ex MEL as Virgin have just started.

    Just wait until Virgin kick off Sydney.

    Weekends in Hong Kong if these prices go on…..

    Would be nice if they didn’t know about school holidays.

  •  

    I think this is the cheapest I have ever seen … Great work TA

  •  

    I'm looking to go back mid January - mid February. Anyone know if they do cheap flights around that time of year? I know it's when uni students are still on holidays, so I'm not expecting the cheapest. Current prices with Singapore Airlines is $900 return

    Great find again TA!

    Interesting to see what Cathay Pacific do here. They are getting slammed by both Qantas and Virgin in terms of pricing. All 3 carriers fly direct and this was unimaginable for them a few years ago. This leg was approx $1000 only 5 years ago. Now Two direct (non LCC) competitors for this once lucrative international leg.

    Will Cathay compete on price and continue this race to the bottom? Watch this space would be my guess. We could see even a $399 fare become the norm.

    My tip: Go Nov 2 - November 7th. $453 here Coincides with Melbourne Cup long weekend (Most people get 4 days off) so would not affect leave entitlements etc.

  •  

    Jeez, 10 years ago I flew out with Cathay to Tokyo via HK for frigging $1450!!

  •  

    When this sale finito?

  •  

    Time to go try those rooftop bar in Hong Kong!

  •  

    damn prices shot up $400 in 5 hours…

  •  

    Brisbane to HK doesn't show $469 for the November date shown above, tried many times, didn't work.

  •  

    I wanted to book directly with qantas and this sale finished midnight last night :(

  • +1 vote

    Hopefully another one of these sales will come again soon..

  •  

    Once we see Virgin start Brisbane and Sydney to Hong Kong, we will see these sales constantly.

  •  

    I've been meaning to ask this for some time now. What does the "ex" mean in the title?

  •  

    Seems like all price bumped :(..

    What's the best price to HK from Sydney 15Aug-26 Aug?
