Best price and decent flight are generally mutually exclusive.

Prices can be easily obtained through online travel agents and the airlines themselves and change so frequently that it's not even worth the bother for someone to post a price. You can read reviews and supplement that with the airline's own propaganda to get an idea of the experience in the particular class of travel you're looking at.

Ethiad are a good service provider and only one stop in Abu Dhabi on route from MAN-BNE just done a dummy booking 07/12 assuming a month return and their site is showing £1167

Might be marginally cheaper overall if she flies MAN-DUB and then fly Ethiad DUB-BNE because Eire doesn't charge Air Passenger Departure Tax which on long haul from the UK is the highest in the world

I looked at your suggestions from Dublin to Bangkok for my own flights and they were more expensive than from Glasgow or Edinburgh and I still had to get to Ireland!!!

I think it's probable that the airlines are taking a hit on the tax to keep their prices competitive from the UK.

Kind regards

Fare same dates DUB-BNE with Ethiad approx.£850 but fare MAN-BNE £1167 so diff approx £300 and Aer Lingus fare MAN-DUB £150 so in this instance it works out cheaper

I use the UK-DUB- west coast US often and it normally saves me approx £200 per seat over UK-US with no appreciable difference in overall travelling time

i've noticed Oman air have been coming in with the lowest fares lately but check out the www.skyscanner.net website to see what's the best price/schedule available for your dates.
