Flying UK-Tokyo- Bangkok
My boyfriend and I are hoping to visit a friend in Tokyo this August for 5-6 days. We would then like to fly on to Thailand for a week or so, then back to the UK. We have to travel during the school holidays : (
Does anyone know of any ways of getting some cheap flights for this route? At the moment my online searches are coming in at way over £1000 per person. Just wondered if people thought this was realistic?! I was hoping for something more around the £800 mark! Any suggestions or inside tips for this route would be appreciated!

Business travellers who are flying around the world a great deal will pick up a lot of wisdom about making the trips as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. There's a separate article in this section about getting upgrades, but here are some other top tips that old hands might already know but new air warriors can make use of.
Frequent Flyer Schemes
A lot of business travellers get quite obsessed about frequent flyer schemes but there's no doubt that they make sense; if you're going to be flying the miles anyway you might as well get the most out of them. Join every scheme you are eligible for and read the small print so that you know how to make the best of them. Here are some specific top tips about loyalty schemes. Check occasionally to make sure your points are in date. Most schemes will allow you to extend the life of your points at a cost, so if you have a large amount about to expire, weigh up whether or not it's worth paying to do that.
Don’t join any scheme that asks for a joining fee. There are plenty out there that cost nothing and deliver the same benefits.
Every time you travel somewhere join the relevant scheme if you're not already a member. But decide on one, probably the one that you are flying most with, as your main scheme and use hotels and car hire firms that are on that same scheme.

I doubt you’ll something for much cheaper. Those multistep trips are usually more expensive all in all and the ticket to Tokyo alone is quite much.
So far I haven’t found a ticket to Tokyo for less than 600 Euros (well, 500e during crazy days in our dept store but that is never certain). So yes, I think 1000 pounds or over is pretty much realistic.

Maybe try looking for flights to Bangkok first. While in Thailand book your flight to Japan with return to Bangkok. August is still low season. Perhaps you can get a good price on a return flight originating in Bangkok for Japan.
