flights from South East Asia to UK

Hey guys, kinda started missing my family after a year on the road and was wondering if anyone knows of a good company to fly home with? Will get a return flight and leave the bike here but at the moment I can only find flights for 500+ GBP but someone told me I can get one for less than 200.

Have you seen this around?

Cheers,
Hornet

Air Asia started flying from Kuala Lumpur to London... Maybe worth checking out.

Welcome to AirAsia.com...now everyone can fly...

The AirAsia service to London is an absolute steal, with Gulf probably the next best on price. But for a quality flight i found Malaysia airlines to be most excellent!

have to agree AirAsia very good. Plus if you pick the first or second Tuesday of the month they seem to heavily discount that flight.

Note their website is sneaky it detects if you go back the next day to check a flight and increases the price - I got around this by logging in as a user and logging out again :-)

Also note if you decide to change your flight it costs £25 - not so bad but you can NOT change to another discounted flight only to a full price one so suddenly you are forking out a £100!

Malaysia Airlines are also good in terms of helping to bring the bike back home too
