    Insane flight ticket price hike!

    Just two weeks ago I thought I could afford a short trip to Japan in March. This morning all flight tickets increase by almost 3 folds! Sayonara...

    We’ve had to pay more than double. Expect the costs to be such for at least 2023, certainly in/out of HK.

    I’m cancelling my trip. Will see if 2024 will be any better but I have a feeling it’s not.

    Random check in March, I can see return flights for $2400. Is that good or bad? You want a return flight for only HK$800!?

    HKExpress had some really cheap flights to Japan. Something like HKD$200 a leg. These are not normal prices...

    Some of their flights leave at 1am or something crazy like that, so not practical for us dragging a 5 year around..

    Used HKexpress to KIX and NRT to HKG. About hkd$5-6k return per person. Not crazy prices considering xmas period flight.

    Skyscanner shows similar prices as BDW for most of March. Not sure how you can do 2 x 4/5 hour flights at HK$900. Lucky to get meblorune-sydney domestic flights at that price...

    ymmv.

    The inflation rate affects my travel goals.
