The cheapest flight I can find is about £320 from Heathrow to Bangkok, with one stop over in India. Just wondering if anybody else, preferably, but not exclusively from the UK has been able to get there for any cheaper by any means of travel?

Maybe check Air Asia ex-Stansted, and if flying (direct) to their hub in Kuala Lumpur there are promotional fares starting at £249 (base fare £148 + £101 "airport charges & fees").
You can check their base fares (without tax etc) on http://www.airasiaplus.com then book online at http://www.airasia.com. Of course it depends a lot on your intended date of travel.
I don't know when you are going and presumably you are looking for a single ticket.I use
They do a comparison and you can look at whole months or even the year.
I found one, using them, for £270 on 26th May from Gatwick with TUIfly .Never heard of them but the site is brilliant.

330 is a pretty good price though.

Yes, but he wants the cheapest.
..and he's coming from UK.
I thought you'd be more of a expert on flights from Detroit or Houston or Pensacola.

Sayadian I ain't an expert on flying period. I hate to fly and I do it as seldom as possible. I go back to the States once every three or four years. And if my mother should die before I do (not a foregone conclusion given my lifestyle) I'll never go back again. I don't miss it enough to torture myself on those trans-pacific flights.

Royal Jordanian were the cheapest the other day for returns but it fluctuates like the stock excange.Use that site I mentioned I found it the best but welcome anybody elses suggestions.
I had to smile when you said you don't like flying.I believe you were in the military so I expect at some time you must have experienced one of those stomach-churning military landing! You know what I mean, stalling the thing to lose height.
Bet you enjoyed that as much as I did.

I personally think that is a good flight. A few years back i stopped of in Mumbai and it was the cheapest flight i could find. I flew with Jet which are also a good airline and maybe the best food i have had on a flight.
