12 month maximum stay, no minimum stay, but outbound from SYD must begin by June 8 it appears.

Any chance they'll offer the reverse for the same price?

cheers

This makes the prospect of going to OZ fest a bit more interesting...for sure...

Sure, but the chance is .00000001% or less.

It is available for leaving SYD on Monday, May the 29th (of course this also arrives into USA on that day local LAX time). I had this departure date with returns in November to Australia pricing out without issue.

I should note on the outbound dates, that I did not check for dates leaving after June.

It's available in August and November as well at higher price $596ai. I wish the calendar was open out a few more weeks into December/January. I need a US->OZ ticket for around December 15, but currently the booking calendar stops on the 8th.

Slightly unrelated, but how would you get a Visa for 12 months in Australia? Or would you just fly back and forth between NZ to keep it active?

The fare is SYD-USA, not USA-SYD, so there would not be a 12 month stay in AU.

As far as Americans are concerned this fare is basically useful to fly this way:

Award ticket one way US->AU

Paid round trip AU->US->AU nested dates

Award ticket AU->US

It is a nice way to stretch two one way award tickets into two visits to AU for relatively little investment in $.

Perhaps if the geniuses at AA would recognize that passengers find the 10-across "sardine can" seating on their 77Ws unsuitable for a 7500 mile flight (especially when the competition have their 777s configured at 9 across) they could actually sell Economy tickets at a profitable rate instead of having to give them away at 3.6 cpm.
