It looks like fare rule is a Q class fare, not sure why it books into A.

Not fully refundable.

ord-syd is around 1500 for first. Strange thing is that ord-lax is not in first. Thanks for the find!

That's amazing!

I'm definitely very tempted, but probably shouldn't!

The fare is great. But I worry about whether it will be honored. The booking code is A, but the fare basis is Q.

Does this have anything to do with QF's recently changed fare basis?

Books into A (much like the LHR-LAX A fare of a few years ago).

A is still been shown as a valid First fare on the A380 per the guidelines on this Flyertalk FAQ... http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/qanta...aq-qantas.html
