US - Australia - 660 to 765

US - Australia

Looks like is pretty open from Just about anywhere in the US to at least Sydney and Melbourne through June. for anywhere from $660 to $765

I've never seen prices like this to Australia.

If I wasn't already booked up, I'd be all over this.

Well, way back when, UA was selling, at least ex IAH, for around $500.

IIRC one of our UA mods (not a UA mod at the time) did a few of those when MRs were still useful

Even the LAX-SYD nonstop is very reasonable, though still has nonstop premium.

looks like this is how i'll spend the e-certs i collected in 2016! great find, and i'll get plenty of time for the *A lounge at LAX (and in-n-out) both ways.

EDIT: you can open jaw in oz. thinking about flying into SYD, and then leaving from MEL.

Has this gone away already? I'm checking to SYD and can't find anything close to these prices.

Way back when, like last year?

I had a $498 fare from Seattle last year; too bad I missed this. Melbourne is a great city.
