I dont think that is the final fare that you pay to RBA for a LHR return. You may have missed the fine print.

I checked and it comes up to about RM 1,400 return - but the flight is gruelling. Over 5 hour stop at BWN and then a one stop 17 hour flight to LHR. Total time - about 24+ hours! Might be more doable if you fly from KCH or BKI.

I dont think that is what you actually pay in the end. Maybe one way, but it cant possibly be the return fare.

 

DO you have the screen shot?

For KUL-LHR return, the add-ons totalling some RM1600 that BI applies on top of the so-called very-cheap base fare of RM1200 are:

 

  • Fuel Surcharge (YQ)
    MYR918.00
  • Malaysia Passenger Service Charge(MY)
    MYR65.00
  • D8AB
    MYR3.90
  • UK Air Passenger Duty APD(GB)
    MYR395.00
  • UK Passenger Service Charge(UB)
    MYR225.00
  • Total per adult
    MYR1,606.90
     
     

 

 

So, even if BI waives the fuel surcharge which goes into its own pocket, a RM1400 retrn all-in ticket price means a base fare of about RM711 - which is extremely very very very unlikely given that BI doesnt have capacity to throw around with its relatively small 788.

The flights were for May 2017 - and it is a return fare as I had all the flight details.

 

Since I was merely curious, I did not bother taking any screen shots.

Same principles apply for whatever month. I believe you may have been mistaken.

I roughly checked the RBA flight for May next year and the price was 2817.90 for KUL - LHR return under RB Saver.  Interestingly the price ex-BKI is almost double as RB Saver was not on offer at the same date.

It's a fairly obvious dictate of the market, because BKI-BWN-LHR is a logical routing. KUL-BWN-LHR is highly illogical as you'd need to backtrack a considerable amount of distance, so there needs to be an incentive for someone to actually choose that routing.

For cheap RB fares ex-BKI, I find your stars need to be correctly aligned vis a vis when they think you should travel cheap and when you would like to travel, venture beyond these days the prices they quote can be somewhat alarming  :)

Some of the available city pairs are KUL CDG AMS KUL, KUL LHR AMS KUL. You can also get KUL JFK IAD KUL for around RM1.7k but again, for 7 person

Waiping,

BI advert in Daily Express today - promo BKI-LHR like 2,800 return or so

Maybe worthwhile to see if you can snatch a bargain or two ?  :)

flew on mh3, full to the brim... Upper deck became suffer deck. But they need to clean the plane (seat pockets, chair table, and side bin) as the plane looked so dirty.
