Consistent ~HK$26,600 Fares to London on Swiss Until The End of the Schedule

While Swiss’s business class fares to Zurich are obscene sometimes, they can sometimes have comparatively better fares to other destinations. But normally I only see them happening within a month of departure, or during low season.

Well, Swiss is offering ~HK$26,600 business class fares from Hong Kong to London via Zurich for what seems to be the end of the schedule.

While that’s no means a small amount of money, it’s more than what I’ve seen anywhere else. I do have another Swiss flight planned, but that’s more expensive, and is around two hours less flying, so isn’t as worth talking about.

While I’ve seen cheaper options to London, all of them were on Finnair (at HK$23,000). While that’s arguably an even better product, Finnair’s product is much more economically accessible, and I’d argue with so many routes at even cheaper London isn’t the best route Finnair should be taken on. (It’s worth noting, though, that one route from Helsinki to London is currently being operated as an A350, and has an under three hour connection time from the Hong Kong-Helsinki flight.) I am looking at a future flight on Finnair, though, given how good Jason finds it and how cheap the rates are from Hong Kong.

Who’s taking advantage of either deal in the upcoming months?
