Hi fellas

Can anyone make head or tail of the new EVA timetable out of LHR ? They seem to have suspended or stopped flights during the months of July and August in and out of LHR for some reason.

I can't seem to get a clear idea of the timetable on the website, and the old links for a .pdf download don't exist anymore.

Cheers in advance
Butch

It happens every year it's the low season for Thailand,they don't like to send out planes half empty so they consolidate,if they have flights with only 100 bookings they cancell that flight and put them on the other half full flights.

Just had a little heart flutter!!!

 

I logged on to "Manage My Trip" and it couldn't find my booking!!!

 

But then I found that in my haste I had spelt my surname incorrectly.

 

Conclusion: Everything is showing booking confirmed..Seat selection in Premium Economy is showing 3/4 full

 

Flying middle August and beginning September..

Ahh thanks for the explanation. I'm looking at dates in July, it seems that EVA have cancelled Thursday outwards flights from LHR for a large percentage of the month. Prices are a bit on the ridiculous side as well, might have to look elsewhere.

As an update, I spoke to EVA today and they pretty much confirmed the above, along with a rotational maintenance schedule as they have some planes in "D" Check apparently.

I managed to get the dates I wanted, although it came at a price  :banghead  :cry1

Do not be afraid to fly Thai if you can get a good price.

I always used Eva but their flights were always very very busy so I gave Thai a try and I was not disappointed at all.

Yep Thai all booked up and the prices coming in at £200+ more than the EVA equivalent. I very nearly wavered and cashed in my Avios miles to go with BA but I'd rather book myself an upgrade on a BA flight so it is half way decent than ever fly Econ with them.

if flights are showing as heavily booked the fares will always go up. But as mentioned thats usually because the big comanies see a demand and take out HUGE allocations.

For my flight in Oct/November I will wait untill the allocations get dropped and the prices will fall. I will expect to pay around the £400- £450 for a Thai flight then.
