With regards to your query, please be advised that the fares are subject to availabilty and are classified as per the different level of fares depending upon the restrictions, price and routing.
There are various factors under which the pricing for a specific routing is based such as the basic fare, taxes( variable, non- variable, departure and arrival taxes) and fuel surcharges.Due to this the price may vary from one destination to another.

Please be advised that the fare quoted online is based on the availability.
*** Airways website is a dynamic online system. As our inventory is being updated on a real-time basis, the movement of availability or prices is also instantaneous.

I am not aware of the taxes in the UK.  But I have noticed that if I return to the USA it is always cheaper for me to fly in and out of HK than Guangzhou.  And there are many more flight options available.

It wasn't the price I was querying, it was the difference in price for the same journey. Regardless of what their reply says I believe it is more a case of charging what the market will stand. I assume most people booking a flight from China will be Chinese?
