MrsF is heading for a work trip that will encompass BNE-SIN-AUH-PVG-HKG-BNE (with MrsF Mum's as a travelling companion) in J.
I am struggling to find any air fare that meet this need and would love any suggestions.
She would prefer to use Etihad/VA/Singapore as a preferance.
We have to book MrsF's flight through Engenica but will book MiL flight separately.
Should I just look at a Done4 type of fare & route through UK/USA ?

How does pricing go if you ticket BNE-SIN-HKG-SIN-BNE with SQ with side trips SIN-AUH-SIN and HKG-PVG-HKG?

CX would offer a fare routed the other way (BNE-HKG-AUH-HKG-BNE with side trips to SIN and PVG.

You could look at EY to SIN/AUH then use SQ or CX from SIN on the return leg to do PVG and HKG.

All may end up pricey though (always a problem when trying to do work trips).

If it's J you may even find a DONE4 cheaper (as you suggest) - the "problem" is AUH will be considered ME and you need to do SIN 1st and then PVG/HKG again. If she could shift the SIN stop into Asia it would be easier.

There's also the LCC option for the Asia side trips which may work out cheaper but has it's drawbacks too.

I have this fare on the etihad website... BNE-SIN-AUH-PVG-AUH-BNE in J for $4633.

This is so much cheaper than the cost of just flying direct BNE-AUH return which is pricing at $7404.
Will be adding a side trip to HKG for around $1000...

Just make sure it is definitely J class (not sure about EY but W is Y+ on QF....).

If so, fantastic price.

It's definitely in J as I was able to pick the seats, and it's bookable on the Etihad website direct. I got all the way to payment page with out any problems.
