Since I haven't been well (getting better now, thanks for asking) I have had the chance to keep a watch on web air fares. We want to go next Jan/March to southern Thailand but entering from Penang in Malaysia.
I have looked at all the usual booking sites (both English and French). This morning I found Air Malaysia had just what I wanted on the right days. It is London-Kuala Lumpur-Penang for £180 return. Unfortunately there are taxes of £295 on top. But I don't think I can get a 5 star airline flight for cheaper.Even Egyptair is more expensive.
Thanks. But not with Air Asia as Ibonito suggested. I have just put in our dates again. We are paying on Air Malaysia London Heathrow-Penang 950 for the 2 of us. Air Asia on those dates will fly us Stansted-Kuala Lumpur for 1176. Then add on KL-Penang flights. Add on luggage charge. And, I do believe, add on food and drink.
