expired Melbourne/Sydney to London Return $718 AUD, Perth to London $633 Return Via Scoot/Norwegian Air (Oct 2017- Jan 2018)

Norwegian Air is offering direct flights from Singapore to London Gatwick for $149SGD one way and $430SGD return. The outbound from Singapore is $149SGD and the inbound is $281SGD.

Flights are via the 787 Dreamliner. The bad side is that these fares don't include bags, seat selection & food. Bags are $45 each way. If you want bags, food and seat section you are better selecting the LowFare+ option which adds about $90 on to the fare each way. Still a good price.

A quick check for matching Melbourne - Singapore flights shows $318 AUD Return or $179 One way.

    Wowsers. Good price.

    Only 20kg of luggage on the LowFare+? Bit tight! Good deal otherwise though.

    Makes it cheaper for me to go find Wenger/Kroenke and rip into them!

  •  

    $720 from Syd (same dates, no bags) ($315 scoot tix)

  •  

    From Sydney significantly cheaper (>$40) if you book Scoot via Expedia and other resellers (I've never booked budget airlines via re-sellers because the savings were normally low and I'm a scaredy-cat).

    These deals are good for me but maybe not worth the risk of missing a connection for a normal person with luggage and food. If you miss a connection in Singapore despite leaving ample time then you might be able to afford a few hundred for a last minute flight to Vietnam or Thailand. But last minute flights to London would cost more than this deal alone.

      Just book so that you have a whole day in Singapore to have a look around.

        This. The airport offer free city tours.

        Though statistically unlikely, leaving within 36 hours isn't guaranteed either (technical problems, weather problems etc are unpredictable).

        I always mix-and-match LCCs but I'm prepared to holiday in a random destination should something go wrong or pay the price. I know a lot of families can't be bothered with the risk because I tell them about these flight hacks all the time and not one has taken the risk yet.

        Though to be honest I don't find Singapore or Kuala Lumpur that interesting anymore because of this habit. I need a new half-way point.

    I made an account just to comment - cheers, this deal is insane.

    By the way, it looks as if it's a problem with the Norwegian Air website. If you change the price into any other currency beside $SGD, the price doubles/triples. Still though, as long as you don't use an Amex you can book in SGD so it's all good.

    Thanks again!

    Flying this combination in a couple of weeks, was chuffed to get away with ~$850 a few months ago.

    This is a cracking deal.

    Cheaper to fly back from Oslo or Stockholm so could do a multi stop trip.

    Can fly Manchester to Oslo on Ryan air etc.

    Or fly lgw to Iceland to Stockholm for ~ 200 bucks on wow airlines plus ~ 400 on Norwegian into lgw and out of Stockholm
    All in ~ 1k to see London, Iceland and Sweden

  •  

    Moving to London during this period, but need x 2 bags which is quadruple the price!

    •  

      I found if I had a one way flight and called up to explain I was moving permanently, airlines gave me extra luggage allowance.

      •  

        Really? I would've thought they'd try to make you pay for it. Can you share which airlines?

        •  

          Flew with Thai and Korean airlines. This was back in the day of 20kg though. But it doesn't hurt to call up and ask even if you already get 30kg.

    Remember for the Scoot leg, you can get Jetstar to price beat as well for an extra 10%

    We did this in Feb when Scoot had their sale on, no problems.

    Just booked, still going on. Reckon I'm gonna est like a pig in Singapore, ready to survive 14 hours of 50 dollar meals… My carry on is going to be a laptop and 6kg of nuts :)

  •  

    Is anyone flying from Sydney to Singapore? Have you found any decent tickets <$400? Cheers.
