LAX-NAN (Nadi, Fiji) - $51 all in - Travelocity! (fare gone - discussion only)

EXPIRED now -- congrats to all who got in!
------------------------------------------------------------------
6 day min, bookable on Travelocity on Air Pacific (FJ)!

Do NOT use Dream Maps. Just book with straight Travelocity on dates with V fare availability. Prices out to $56 or so, and on clicking it goes to $51!

The lowest fare I see at Travelocity.com is US$754.00 round-trip, and I used the Flexible Dates option all the way through August.

I also tried exact dates in June, giving at least a week of time.

Am I missing something, or has this deal already been withdrawn?

Forget flexible dates option. Just punch in dates that have the flight with V fare availability.

Sample dates: 4/30 - 5/7

ok, I think I have it ...
put SFO-NAN in Flexible Dates. Then go for the $130 fare. That will give you all the V fare dates. Pick your dates from those available there. Then start anew with LAX-NAN. The put in your "V fare dates". Should price out to $56 and the reduced to $51 and change.

sample LAX-NAN dates are 4/23 - 4/30

Travelocity.ca wants $30 CAD for paper tickets - will the US site issue e-tickets?

I see it now. Thanks, chobby100.

Unfortunately, it appears as though June is too late to take advantage of this fare.

I probably shouldn't be worrying about this right now, but can I keep myself occupied in Figi for 7 days? I'm not a big beach person.

I'm in at $51 per person out of LAX + $20 US paper ticketing fee.

Came out to $123 all inclusive for 2 tix.

5/21 - 5/28 are my dates.

Very interesting fare. (edited to remove mileage earning gaffe.) It looks as though Qantas and American are the only mileage earning partners. Still a cheap way to get to Fiji.

I'm getting for $103.50 including taxes:

LAX-NAN 10 May
NAN-LAX 17 May

Plus the $20 ticket charge.

Reservation set for the Sheraton Royal Denarau Resort for 12-17. Keep in mind that you cross the IDL so you lose a day going. The flights arrive very early morning though, and leave very late evening. So extra days by the pool will be required.

Thanks for posting this.

I should also note that I looked up PHL-NAN and it is available for $460 not including taxes. So it seems the add-on fare for these is working. Thank you for posting this!!
