So lets put up a couple of examples (hypothetical ones, you understand).
How about, San Fransisco to Lusaka for one option and Perth to Tokyo for another. Either singles or returns.
I'm not starting some sort of quiz here, just wondering if all of you who are struggling to find a fare that you're happy with, can come up with your best price. You will see that all destinations are 1000's of miles away from Europe and probably (I say probably) won't involve - in your planning, a European airline or airport.
Post your best prices and I might (just might - no guarantee) be able to show you how to do it cheaper, if you're prepared to change en-route.
After all - we're all travellers, aint we? A direct flight is never as interesting as one that involves a change - anyway.

A quiz would be nice actually;)
Anyway, didn't check prices (depends on the date anyhow), but for Perth - Tokyo, I would try Air Asia from Perth to Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur to either Hangzhou or Tianjin. From Hangzhou All Nippon flies to Tokyo. From Tianjin Japan Airlines flies to Nagoya, an option to think about as it's not far by train from Tokyo.

San Francisco to Lusaka would be at least more expensive and difficult to check, but I like a challenge...later
