Anyone know of the best options from MEL to DUB? (Melbourne to Dublin). It's so far away that I could buy through Asia or America.

Depends. If you are a Skywards or QFF member then you can fly EK/QF to DXB, then catch EK to Dublin. If you have affiliates with another airline/airline group, fly with them. Most of the Asian airlines will have direct access to Europe however Emirates would be preferred as it has only one stop @ Dubai.

I would say Etihad, they offer flights to Dublin. I have flown with them many times, great Business cabin. Plus you don't have to go through DXB, AUH is rather smaller and comfortable airport to get around.

Thanks Jedinak K and SunniiGym,

You two were fast :)

I'm Gantas AND Velocity, but will most likley be going economy. If Etihad and Emirates are too pricey, I may have to go with Malaysian Airlines as they have two stop routes as well.

Thanks again.

If you have enough points to fly J there with QF/EK for example you could then purchase a ticket one way inbound with MH as they're usually quite cheap as a published fare, about $1200 in Y.

This may be an option to mix it up.

I have done it on a few airlines but the last one was 2012 with Etihad in business . They say you are only as good as your last trip! So with that in mind I will go with them again ! Absolutey marvellous !
