    Cheers guys. Looked on myvacations and also Quatar Airways own site. Theres a flight from Mancs to Doha then onto Phuket. Bit confused as Ive not done this before.

    Fri 18th Nov
    Out: Manchester 14:00 Doha 23:55
    Doha 01:50 +1 day(s) Phuket 15:55 +1 day(s)

    Sat 17th Dec
    Back: Phuket 17:35 Doha 23:50
    Doha 01:30 +1 day(s) Manchester 06:25 +1 day(s) 19:50 hrs

    Have I got this right?
    - So I leave Mancs at 2pm on Fri 18th Nov; arrive in Doha at 11.55pm same day (local time or UK time?).
    - Leave Doha at 1.50am Sat 19th Nov and arrive in Phuket at 3.55pm same day (again local time or UK time?)

    The +1 day is throwing me. eg On the way out I expect to stop off in Doha for 1hr 55mins not 1 day + 1hr 55mins. Is that right?

    If its a day and 1hr 55mins I'll look for a flight out on Thurs 17th Nov (my bday), so that I'll arrive on Sat 19th.

    My head is hurting already!!!

    Times quoted will be in local time. Total flight time is about 17hrs + 2 hrs stop over + 7 hr time difference.

    Leave 2pm get there at 4pm next day.

    Direct from LHR to BKK is 12 hrs. So with flying from Manc and going to Phuket plus the fucking about in the middle east it seems right.

    its a 7 hour difference all together, so 12:00 in england is 19:00 thailand. so if you fly for 12 hours but you will be 7 hours infront of uk time making it a 19 hour flight thats only really 12 hours long. on the way home you fly for 12 hours but arrive in england 5 hours later (according to the clock).

    also its the year 2554, so really you arrive 543 years later and then travel 543 back in time to go home.

    Get on www.southalltravel.com

    Only 541 direct on Eva from LHR to BKK.

    Only 520 on Gulf via Bahrain

    Manc to Phuket is coming up as 765.

    Get down to LHR and take the 541 and book a fight on Air Asia from BKK to Phuket for about 30.

    I should be a travel agent
