Business class return – Bangkok from £921, Dubai £789

As always the best value fares seem to pop up from Scandinavia and Finland. You can view our guide to ex EU from Scandivania and Helsinki in this article (plus Gothenburg here). The latest offers are exceptional value on Swiss or Lufthansa business class. Most of the team have flown with Swiss in business class but we will be bringing you a full review from Roving Reporter soon.

So which airline to choose?

Lufthansa B747 business class

Out of the two, I would probably go with Swiss as the seat layout is slightly nicer, but the Lufthansa seats are more comfortable for sleeping unless you are bothered by the small footwell. Lufthansa has a 2-2-2 layout whereas Swiss have the ‘throne’ seats which have lots of storage and privacy for the solo traveller. Swiss also have seats for those travelling together in the middle of the cabin.

Cathay Pacific Australia and New Zealand from £2119 return business class

Cathay Pacific business class seat

Cathay Pacific have launched another offer from Helsinki this time for flights to Australia and New Zealand. I have flown Cathay Pacific business class many times and always been impressed. Their long haul business class features the latest reverse herringbone seats and their service is generally exemplary. This applies not just in the air but on the ground which is rare. A good example is when our luggage missed the connection to Australia in Hong Kong. When we got off the plane someone was waiting to tell us about it and the luggage was delivered to our hotel the same day. You can read our reviews of Cathay business class here.

Compared to flying from the UK, these are exceptional value as from the UK prices start at over £3000 for Cathay Pacific. The flights start with Finnair to Amsterdam and then fly on to Hong Kong on the way to the final destination. This would also be a great way to get plenty of tier points on an Australia or New Zealand trip. If you flew to Helsinki with BA in Club (which often only around £200) for positioning that would get you 160 tier points. The rest of the flights would get you 640 making a total of 800 tier points versus 600 flying from the UK on BA via Singapore or 480 on Cathay. 

The prices

From Helsinki prices start from:

  • Auckland £2119
  • Adelaide £2145
  • Perth £2142
  • Brisbane £2154

The rules

  • Book by: 31 January
  • Travel: by 31 May 2020 (except   03 Apr 20 through 15 Apr 20)

    Flown Swiss, Business to Nairobi then First return. Superb. (And we got a bargain fare!!!) And just planning a Bangkok trip.

  2. Unreal the deals they get in Scandinavia and it’s not like people there are too poor either! These kinds of prices are really silly money for a country like Norway.

  3. I cannot see anywhere near the prices quoted for GOT-BOM or GOT-DXB when using Skyscanner for dates in January. Am I missing something?
