I have been looking at flight costs recently to Hong Kong and somebody suggesting looking at Oasis Airways.
On first investigation it looked very good - I found a fare of £89 each way - fantastic. Then the tax was added on - bringing the flight cost up to £294. Still not so bad. Then i looked into it a little more carefully.
Although you were provided with two hot meals and free tea and coffee, any drinks and snackes were chargeable - about £2 for a beer and £4 for a small bottle of wine. On a 12 hour pluse flight I would expect to have mayve a small bottle of wine and perhaps 2 beers - total £10
The last thing that i discovered is that Oasis will charge you £15 to pre-book your selected seat or £60 if that selection happens to be an exit row.
So the bottom line cost works out at £178 for the tickets, £116.29 for the tax, £20 for a couple of drinks each way and £120 to pre-book the seat - a grand total of £429.26
Maybe its not so cheap after all
