It's been 5 years or so, since I booked an international flight. I'm planning on travelling from Manchester to Bahrain and then a week later, a return flight from Dubai to Manchester (or Heathrow).
I see many flight comparison websites, all overring one way or return flights etc.
I've a few questions if we have any frequent flyers:
* Is it worthwhile booking a return to and from same locations and then a seperate connecting flight( Dubai to Bahrain for example as a return flight on its own?)
* How can I ensure that I'm getting the best flight prices and times using each of the website, when there are so many airlines and travel sites to use?
* Where do I get the option to see what upgrade I have (such as extra leg room etc) as this is a must, so each airline may charge differnt prices but I won't get to know this once I've bought the basic flight - how do I get around it?
* What other tips to people have for getting the best deal?
