Flights from UK to Australia in April


I am searching for flightis to either Sydney or Brisbane to go in April for 3 weeks.

which will be the best place to search them? I had a look in Expedia, Kayak and netflights.

Is it really uncomfortable to do the trip with no stopovers? I would like to do a stopover, but at the same time Australia is a vast country, so i don't going to waste any day. What would you recommend?

How are Cathay airlines? anybody that has travel with them can advice me?

Had a bit of a nose around. The best I can find is with Expedia from LHR to Brisbane on April 16 and returning May 7 for £645 with Qantas.

Funnily enough, it was cheaper to put in Brisbane as final destination rather than Sydney, even though you go through Sydney. Go figure.

Stopovers are a personal choice. I prefer sometimes to get the flight over and done with, other times if I have time to spare to take a few days out. Have you done long haul before?

I haven't flown Cathay. Usually stick with Qantas/BA for the London -> Oz route.

I never do stopovers - I have little enough time as it is in my destinations without wasting more days en route. But many people swear by them so it really is an individual choice. I say - dont stress on it too much, if you want more time in Australia dont stop over :)

Last time I flew Cathay was many years ago but I found them to be very good and I believe they have a good rep with travellers.

Happy travels!
