Default Where to get the cheapest return flights to UK

Wife and daughters have been here 5 years in September and I was hoping that I can get them all to go home for Christmas and some of January. As I had to go back last year as my mother was dying and because of the continual pulling out of buyers and therefore I have only been here 3 years.

Does anyone have any ideas for the most cheapest return flights to the UK?

We found Korean air a really good price, believe they added gatwick from March. Look at their various sites, we found that they have better deals via someone like Skyscanner or other ticket agencies. Planes are fine, Seoul airport is nice and modern

There is no one place or time to be alb ego buy cheap tickets, you need to keep an eye out all over the place.

-Airline websites (quite often the best prices these days), subscribe to their newsletters.
-Airfare search engines e.g. Kayak, Skyscanner etc
-Online travel agents e.g. Expedia
-Physical travel agents (my last choice, haven't used one in 10 years)

I booked Mr BEVS for a return home to see his 84 yr old Mum over Christmas and New Year a couple of weeks back. It came in at around $2700 using Lufthansa NZ. It;s a bit of a mix and match of airlines and a few hours longer due to transit times but I grabbed it whilst the going was good.

Will keep looking and get hubby to do a search on the net. I wanted to see my mum as she's 86 not getting any younger

You should have a look on sky scanner, def got cheaper. Get a print out and take it to flight centre and they will beat it. (done this lots of times only have to show them how I did it and they will beat it by a few bucks, give me vouchers and I have peace of mind that I have a person I can contract rather then the Internet)
