I'm afraid you can stop hoping, because with current airplane technology, direct flights between East or Southeast Asia and South America are effectively impossible. The maximum practical range of today's best planes hovers around 8,000 nautical miles. The longest flight ever flown commercially anywhere was Singapore Airlines' Singapore-Newark service at ...
Is going via Australia or New Zealand not an option? Qantas 27 runs direct from Sydney to Santiago, Chile every other day, while LAN Chile 800 runs the same route daily with an intermediate stop in Auckland, NZ. There's also Air New Zealand 30 that flies from Auckland to Buenos Aires, Argentina, but it's Fri-Sun-Tues only.
Jetstar Bali to Perth is around 70.4 USD/52 Euro (plus hidden cost). Since I think Denpasar Bali International Airport is one of the nearest international Airport from Australia, I believe this price is the cheapest. Alternatively you can try AirAsia Bali to Perth, it cost around 77 USD at the same time(15 March)
You can fly from Singapore to Perth with Tiger Airways from 130 Euros (plus some hidden costs), I am not sure whether that is cheap compared to other options and you may also don't want to go to WA, but it is an option.
I plugged "Mexico, anywhere" to "China, anywhere" for a random Friday in August into Skyscanner, and it only throws up one-stop connections - no direct flights. Ditto going to South Korea, India, Singapore. However, there is a single direct flight from Mexico City to Tokyo (14h on Aeromexico). On a Saturday, I can see a direct flight from Tijuana to ...
Airliners or staff tickets are not available to regular passengers, they are strictly available to employees of different airlines. Each airlines provides each employee with certain or unlimited number of free/discounted tickets each year/contract depending on the contract or level of the employee. In addition to that each airline may have a bilateral ...
Air Asia flies from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast, and is usually the cheapest way to fly into Oz by a long shot. They also connect KL to Japan and Korea. (Usual LCC disclaimers apply: book well in advance and be prepared to fly at awkward times.) Jetstar also flies from Singapore to Darwin and Melbourne.
Interesting question, though I don't see the relationship between not wearing shorts in temples and garbage outside. As @toy already commented, Singapore is the cleanest due to its strict litter laws. North Korea is probably also very clean, though that's not considered part of Southeast Asia. Japan is also quite litter-free, though also not part of ...
The only flight I know of along that route is on AeroMexico; Narita - Mexico City (AMX57), Mexico City - Lima (AMX48). That is a nearly 12 hour flight on the 787-800. Other than that, all other options are through either Canada / US; or the other way around from Europe / Middle East. For direct flights to South America; I only know of Emirates 261 and ...
I'm not sure whether buying such tickets would be possible, but chances are that only 'full-cost' airlines will have such an option. For cheap flights, the best option by far within the South-East Asia region would be to fly with a budget airline. Wikivoyage has a list of discount airlines that operate in Asia. If you have even a slight amount of planning ...
On my last two trips I took the ferry between Japan and South Korea several times so found myself having to change money between JPY and KRW fairly often. In my experience, everything in Korea is cheaper than in Japan, and this includes currency exchange so I learned to always exchange in Korea if possible. But the difference is not very large. I don't ...
