    Perth-Japan Direct Flights?

    Thanks so much for the advice. You’re right. CX best connection is now A$2206 and the other connections are in the region of A$1800. Will take advice and buy tickets by next week. Thanks.

    Perth-Japan Direct Flights?

    Thanks, everyone for your response. We are looking at CX because it is just one transit and the timings are more manageable for the kiddos. Prices have increased since I looked at them about a month ago. TA told me that prices will just continue to increase. Generally, do prices for Y & J...

    Perth-Japan Direct Flights?

    Hi Back in Dec 2015, there were media reports of JAL and/or ANA planning to start Perth–Japan direct flights. Does anyone have any updates on this possibility taking off? Have booked our accommodation in Niseko and have to book flights very soon. Looking at CX at the moment. Thanks.

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Travelislife, would appreciate the link to book the CTS-Niseko bus transfers. We did not look at pensions because (I think, like B&B) the owners live in the house itself and with three children (all boys), we don't want the boys to 'disturb the peace' of the owners. That is the main reason why...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Thanks. I did think that it was a long 9 hours layover in HKG. Called Finnair in Sydney, asking about using the outgoing flight to Singapore with QF. The lady said that it would bring the whole return flight up to $4000+ because there's no promo fare on that. I'll check with Expedia again.

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Thanks so much for so patiently guiding me through Helloworld and Thaiairways. I've never thought of doing this way because I assume that 2 separate tickets would be a lot more expensive than a return ticket. Really appreciate the help. I did think that Yama Shizen was expensive, but haven't...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    We are looking at either a two b/r plus a three/b/r apartment or a chalet with 5 rooms. Because the kids will be in ski school, accommodation near the ski school / ski-in-ski-out would be great. Our TA said that the first early bird offer has come in & recommended Yama Shizen at Niseko at $2710...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Travelislife, thanks for the PER-HKG-HEL itinerary. Some background; previously all our other flights have been very easy, all travelling just to one destination, e.g. Perth to Zurich / Perth to Rome etc, all transiting in Singapore, through SQ. This is the first time we are doing a...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    For the above itinerary with Finnair & Qantas, the quote is A$2787 with a TA. For a more indirect flight, with TG to Bangkok, LH to Frankfurt and LH to Helsinki, it is A$1772. Will go with the more direct flight. Also looking for best flight options for rest of the extended family who is going...

    It would be great if JL or ANA has a TYO-PER flight. Hopefully it comes soon because we will be booking the flights shortly.

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Thanks for the Hokkaido skiing thread. That was very helpful. We've only been to Thredbo and Whistler and now first time to Hokkaido. Will still need lessons. Extended family will be going to Hokkaido direct, without the Hel segment. TA recommended Furano because it is not so crowded, but...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    The expensive flight I saw was $6171, economy, flying Qantas PER to SIN / Finnair SIN to HEL / Finnair HEL to NRT and Garuda NRT to PER. I saw the BA itinerary you mentioned but the connections are very long, with the outbound taking 38 hours, PER to HKG to LHR to HEL. Yes, we are looking at...

    Perth - Helsinki / Helsinki - Sapporo - Perth Advice Needed

    Thanks for suggesting Oneworld circle. Have not done it before, so kind of confused. When I went into oneworld circle trip explorer and clicked Perth – Helsinki – Tokyo, a message appeared to indicate that the itinerary can’t be done because itinerary has to be in a continuous direction and I...
