Flights to Australia

Options
Can anyone advise on best companies for good deals to OZ. I'm going to try Dial a Flight and Travelbag. Any others out there? We want to fly from Manchester. Cairns is our first stop and we'd like to stop over in either Dubai or KL. We want to fly back from Sydney and aren't particularly bothered about stopping over unless it works in really well. I was looking on the Emirates site, and thought Man/ Dubai/Brisbane going out would be fine but I'm not sure if you can come back from Sydney.
Thanks

    Hello

    We have booked to go to Australia with ebookers, we are flying with singapore airlines.

    We got a very good price and nectar points and I see from looking at ebookers web site that they are giving double nectar points until 31 dec 05.

    We found booking with them rather than direct with singapore airlines was cheaper.

    We cant wait to go hope you enjoy your time there.

    Travelbag and ebookers are the same company now I believe we went to Oz with them 2 years ago. We flew Quantas/Ba Manchester to LHR then to Singapore then to Sydney. We went to Hamilton island then Cairns and flew back to Singapore from there.

    We have just booked to Auckland NZ from Manchester via Dubai with Emirates, if you pick them join their Skywards frequent flyer program before you go as you get loads of intro miles.;)

    We went to Malaysia last year with Malaysian Airlines, they would be in my list of airlines to use again too. Hope this helps and have a good time.:xmassmile

    emirates , malaysia airlines and qantas are probably your best options for this route.
