This one appears dead. Congrats to anyone who managed to snag one!
Um, yeah. Don’t wait to book this if you’re even thinking about taking it.
$172 round-trip from Dallas to Melbourne. Now, before you say you don’t live in Dallas (or would rather go to Sydney) stick with me for a few minutes.
There’s plenty of availability and this is in the warmer summer months in Australia. The Flight Deal has all the details.
These fare are available for plenty of days between now and May of next year, though I’d be shooting for December or January to hit their summer season.
I’ve never been to Melbourne but heard incredible things. I did spend some time in Sydney recently that was incredible. Just incredible.
NOTE: Secret Flying is reporting you can match this up to Brisbane or Sydney for $300. $300 sounds so expensive when you compare it to $172. 😀
But, Ed. I Don’t Live In Dallas!
Or, you don’t want to go to Melbourne. Don’t think of this as “Dallas to Melbourne”. Think of it as the most incredible fare you’ll ever see to get to Australia. And, figure out how to get to/from Dallas. There are two airports in Dallas and plenty of low-cost carriers that serve both. I’d be pretty surprised if most people couldn’t use miles or find a cheap flight to position yourself in Dallas.
On the other side, you’ve got Virgin Australia (who’s the carrier between Dallas and Melbourne) and Qantas to get you around Australia. Or, you could consider a jaunt to New Zealand. You might be able to redeem miles for tickets with those carriers as well, as partners with airlines like American Airlines (Qantas).
These Fares Won’t Last
You have 24 hours to cancel any fare that starts or ends in the United States after you book it. That’s important to remember. So, you can book something like this and think about it overnight as long as you make sure to cancel within 24 hours.
I would absolutely wait to book hotel rooms or other commitments for a few days. There’s a reasonable chance Virgin Australia might not honor these tickets.
Stop reading, start booking!
