    Hi Bizza,

    A good site is www.opodo.co.uk, what I normally do is check that one out and then whatever comes up go to that particular airlines website and see if you can get a better deal.

    The main problems will be the fluctuations in price, these vary considerably week-in week-out, it's not an exact science.

    We found a flight with Turkish Airlines for £485rtn for next month which we booked back in August.

    I'm sure some of our fellow TravelFishes will be along soon with other ideas.

    Have fun..............

    I agree with steviej, opodo is a good place to start. If you register they have a fare alert service, where you enter the route you want, and they email you with any cheap fares that come up. Also worth trying the other internet sites such as travelocity.co.uk, ebookers.co.uk, and kayak.co.uk which is a comparison site for several other sites. If you wish to include some stopovers on the way, you may be better off talking to an agent such as Trailfinders, who also have access to some competitive fares, but will be able to give you some advice on route variations. Hope this helps.

    We booked through Opodo, and flew with Etihad Airways from Manchester. Excellent flights and in-flight entertainment system. Etihad's hub is Abu Dhabi, and that place was the only problem we had. Fine if you get a smooth connection, but if you get stuck there you'll end up stinking of nicotine. It's got smoking restrictions but they aren't enforced anywhere. Etihad's ground staff were also very poor. Awful place to, that put a sour ending to a great time in SE Asia.
