Problem flying by Eastern China Airways may not get us there, some cheap flights can be like ryanair but tens times worse :/ Ive had a look on STA its the Air China or Eastern China always coming up the cheapest!

Hey guys, just seen your thread. Have a look at Singapore Airlines. I booked direct with them as they were the cheapest i could find at the time. Or sign up to flight companys, they email you when they have flight sales on. Sometimes you can get real bargains.

See you guys on Bondi xmas day! :)

Hey Finn

I actually travelled to Australia on Air China and to be honest it was a nitemare!

Due to delays, missed connections and chucking us off the plane in Shanghai instead of Beijing it took 3 days to get from Belfast to Cairns haha.

This time round id happily pay a little extra and fly with another company as its a long time to be on a plane when you fly from the UK to Oz.

Just a little heads up :)

Hahaha think il take your advice then and stay away from Air China.... the flight time is long enough so needs to be a half decent flight!!!x

Yeah Joanne I really wish I had someone to give me advice on them before I booked. If you had of been there in Shanghai I was getting on like a lunatic thinking id gotten on the wrong plane and nobody spoke good english to explain what was happening so picture the scene haha. Im considering a flight with Eithad, maybe you should check them out and see if there is much difference in price

Ohh bloody hell can imagin how bad that was... dont wanna go through that!! bad start to the trip :(
It will definately be worth paying abit extra for a good airline.. think im going to go into STA travel when im booking they do all diff airlines & see what they recommend x

I'm flying with Cathay Pacific. They're supposed to be pretty good. It's worth looking at reviews for air lines.
