(FARE GONE) LHR-SYD 380 R/T A/I on A380

After careful consideration I decided I couldn't do 24 hrs in economy even on A380, however much I am desperate to get on it.

Plenty of availability Departing LHR on 29th April.

Good luck!!

But I'm not seeing any availability for the return at that fare.

It seems that there is no more O availability left for the outbound at least i saw it but wanted to check that taxes are refundable (which they are) but then the seats disappeared all one by one in a matter of seconds!

I booked now and checked later 380 seats arent going to last long!
I thought £380 is a hit I can take if I cant go but you have to risk it for those fares!

I did a month-long search on ITA for LON-SYD in Apr 2009 and am pulling 355 Euro a/i O-fares. These flights list as connecting in BKK on the inbound and SIN on the outbound.
It's QF16 in and QF319 (operated by BA16).
The fare looks weird as it indicates the A380:

Code:
Fare (A1): 	QF LONSYD OA380SAL fare (rules) 	7.50
Fare (A2): 	QF SYDLON OA380SAL fare (rules) 	7.50
Tax: 	Australian Passenger Movement Charge 	AUD 38.00
Tax: 	United Kingdom Passenger Service Charge 	19.70
Tax: 	United Kingdom Air Passengers Duty 	40.00
Tax: 	Australian Int'l Passenger Service Charge 	AUD 45.28
Tax: 	QF YQ surcharge 	211.00

Fly to Sydney from only 744 on the Qantas A380

Due to high demand the sale fare of 380 has now sold out, however a second offer is still available for 380 plus taxes and fees (744 inclusive of taxes and fees), available for travel between 18 March and 30 April 2009.

Offer ends at midnight 17 June, or until sold out.
