Re: Cheapest option?

OR Scoot from Berlin/Athens - Singapore - Sydney.
Berlin starts in June so might have great launch deals.

Re: Cheapest option?

One of many options:
Brussels Airlines or SAS: Brussels - Oslo/Copenhagen/Stockholm
Norwegian: Oslo/Copenhagen/Stockholm - Bangkok
Jetstar: Bangkok - Melbourne
Loads of airlines: Melbourne - Sydney

OR get from Bangkok to Phuket, and then fly Jetstar from there to Sydney.

Re: Ryanair in 2017

15 minutes? In Brussels? When it's Swissport, more like 30 minutes... and the you miss your train, so that becomes an hour because they've put your trolley in the hold.

Re: BRU Summer 2017: news, new routes, airlines

I recently flew IAH - ATL, ATL - BRU. Indeed both flights had the same flight number: DL80. But yes, it is different aircraft. In my Delta Skymiles account though it shows up as 1 flight. On check-in in Houston I wanted to change seats because the app wasn't allowing it for some reason. The check-in...
