Don't Eva fly MAN-BKK direct? 

 

Personally BA via London would be almost (if not) at the back of my list, much prefer:-

  • Qatar via Doha
  • Emirates via Dubai
  • Finnair via Helsinki
  • KLM Via Amsterdam
  • Turkish AIr via Istanbul 
  • Lufthansa via Frankfurt or Munich 

Maybe Air France via CDG would be slightly worse than BA via Heathrow... Nah, I think I'd even prefer to do that

 

Everybody has a personal opinion. I have been doing the BKK to UK route a couple of times a year for over 20 years, apart from Finnair done all your list plus a few more.

When something goes wrong you will find out how good, or should I say how bad, Qatar really is.

Eva and China Airlines are the ones I have probably used the most. I never said BA are the best, just the most convenient and I would still use them despite the fact I won a court case against them in 2015 over a cancelled flight and currently have an outstanding claim.

All of these give your bum a rest! Emirates via Dxb is good, stopover a couple of days, no extra charge.

Thanks, Mike and others and assume if booking on line are tickets sent or printed from home computer.

I never print mine out. Have the ticket on my phone but never been asked for it. Just hand your passport over at check in and they give you your tickets.

No airlines fly MAN-BKK direct.I prefer a couple of hours stopover mid journey. (fag break). So Emirates for me. Have used Qatar, Ethiad and Oman Air without problems. Oman Air was "interesting" but personally I liked it. Would use them again.

I dont even bother anymore normally with skyscanner or travel supermarket

Just go straight to Travel Trolley I've had superb service way way over and above what could be expected (including changing unchangeable ticket dates twice). Must be approaching 30 return tickets off them ticketed within hours and simply never a price change

Am sure you'll find someone saying the opposite though.
