As frequent flyers, on a short hop to Europe or exploring the far East and West of the Globe, we’re always in search of a bargain to travel in style! The joy of travelling should start from getting to the airport, and we got hooked on the trappings of business class travel and everything that comes with it; lounges, lie-flat beds, food & wine, and free-flowing champagne! We’ve come to realise that traveling in style doesn’t have to break the bank.

Neither of us are millionaires and we’re continually looking to achieve our flying dreams by spending as little cash as we can. Be it a seat sale or miles redemption for reward flights, we tend to let our wallets tell us where we’re going next rather than having a fixed agenda...

So, if you’re looking for flight & accommodation reviews, flight deals, and budget luxury travel tips & tricks then you have come to the right place. Welcome to BoardingGroup.One

Oman Air has launched a sale flying from several hubs in Europe including London, Manchester, Paris, Milan, Istanbul and Moscow. We have looked at the different options and found good deals flying from Paris or Milan to Bangkok.

Oman Air has a 4* rating and flies the 787s to Bangkok. It has a fairly small business class cabin with 18 seats in a 2-2-2 configuration. All flights will stopover in Muscat, the carrier’s home airport.

Destinations

Flights departing from Paris or Milan

  • Bangkok – £1,450
  • Colombo – £1,550

There’s good availability in January 2020, so if you’re looking to escape for some winter sun Bangkok could be a great tropical destination to visit. Options flying from London are available but cost increases significantly, at £1,920 from London to Bangkok, nearly £500 more.

BG1 Tip

So is this a good deal? How much should you pay for a business class seat? We have created a cheat sheet to help us work this out, read our blog on “How much should you pay for a business class seat?” We think the flights represent good value for money, however, if you’re not desperate to book, we predict there will be multiple airline sales happening after Thanksgiving in the Black Friday sales.
