I don’t have a 241 to check but my starting point would be to see if there are flights available to Sydney from somewhere in the deepest darkest parts of the UK (Edinburgh, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow). Frequently the 241 opens these up whilst showing nothing from Heathrow.

If there is then that’s you most of the way. Obviously you would need to get to, say Edinburgh. But Edinburgh is lovely in November. Okay, it’s my least favourite month but sometimes needs must.

Flying home you would probably find that you could book back to Edinburgh via London city and unfortunately miss that flight because whoopise.

The alternative would be to also check Singapore/Hong Kong/KL/Tokyo with the 241 (again likely from the provinces) and see if you can get half way.
