[FARE GONE] Aa: Lax/sfo-akl $212 rt
 
Fly the 787 LAX or SFO to AKL. Seems like a 7 day minimum stay. Cheap O Air or Momonodo is a good place to look. Available throughout the summer and fall.

Example August 5-14

Books into O class. Plenty of availability but looks like OTA glitch.

I booked a couple of RT and already got ticketed (have e-ticket number). Chose my seats on aa website. We'll see if it sticks. It's on a lot of OTAs including Orbitz for a bit more.

cheapO allow 4 hour free cancellation?

Were you able to get this on AA flight numbers? I can see prices down to ~$210 but only for Qantas marketed versions of AA

Looking on Qantas.com and the fare is showing as $183 each way. Not as cheap as $212 rt, but still a great deal!

Shame it doesn't seem to work in reverse :(

Maybe it's just a really good deal to celebrate the launch of AA LAX-AKL.

Low fuel costs. Empty planes. I could see this being on purpose.

AA.com is not showing any fares below $896 RT. So maybe this is either a glitch on the QF side or QF is offering a really good fare sale.

This is a self dump, we can definitely see the effect of low oil prices but this is way too cheap.

Just got one for september, looks like a 7 day min stay or atleast a Sunday stay. Also can get a nice 15 hr layover in melbourne on the way there.

The airline has to allow free 24-hour cancel per DOT, but Cheapo can charge a service fee to perform the cancellation. If you make enough noise and/or if it is really an error fare, then you can usually get the service fee waived.

There are some slightly more reputable OTAs in the ~$350 range, you'll have a better chance of keeping the rez and/or canceling for free with them.

Thanks for the info. I am trying to add a stopover in BNE or SYD now:cool::cool::cool:

Thanks OP, booked the in-laws to come visit us! :)^

No stopovers allowed, but you can do OJ to Aussie on inbound/outbound
