There are fewer flights/itineraries. Chinese authorities have imposed a strict policy regarding international flights with quotas and circuit-breakers ("Five Ones Policy", article on this from Chinese Wikipedia). The number of seats is also limited to 75% of ordinary capacity. Under "Five Ones Policy", for most international routes, one ...

Airlines offering these fares operate outside their "normal" market and into a foreign market in which they typically have very little market share or assets. Also the flights are typically paid for and put forth in light of the main itinerary, not the sub itineraries. One can consider any revenue captured on sub itineraries gravy. As such they ...

How can I easily compare the affordability of two departure airports ... By looking at prices on Google Flights for durations, dates & booking classes that are representative of your specific flight plans, populating a spreadsheet, and looking at the results. Sorry, I'm not trying to be snarky here. Google Flight's "price on calendar feature" ...

As of 2020 November the ATMs located at MRT stations around Taipei provided by Cathay United Bank appear to now charge 4% fee of the entire transaction. So $20 to receive $500 plus any fees from the source bank (without specifying any exchange considerations). This is quite unexpected and new within the past 30 days. FamilyMart ATMs currently have a more ...

It's showing as $1905 for me now. I run an OTA (Beat That Flight) and play with dates/prices a lot. Sometimes you get error fares where an OTA or provider genuinely has the wrong price (They've often forgotten fuel costs or tax or conversions).

The easiest way to do is -- and has been for a few years now -- is the bookwithmatrix service, independent of ITA Matrix/Google. You just "select all" the text on the last page of ITA Matrix and copy-paste the whole thing into this site, it'll do the rest. Simplifying the process, there's a chrome extension and a firefox extension.

A smartphone is most a superset of what is offered by a GPS unit. GPS will be optimized for battery-life and ergonomics but an offline map application will allow you to navigate using a smartphone without a data plan. You can download world maps by country or sections for large countries, so you do not need to have the whole world stored on your phone. When ...

I know you're asking for the cheapest, but I would still recommend the express bus direct from Incheon Airport to Daejeon: https://www.incheon.guide/2016/03/bus-from-incheon-airport-to-daejeon.html From KRW 20,600, services every 20-40 min (in normal times, anyway, COVID has likely slashed these). This avoids a transfer at Seoul Station, which can be ...

I don't need a recommendation or a list but my knowledge of GPS and "navi"s and the differences between them is an utter mystery to me. Fundamentally a GPS receiver, better called localizer is a radio tool that will provide geo coordinates to another piece of hardware.
