Ex eu to Adelaide

Hi guys and girls. I have tried playing around with flying from anywhere in Europe to Adelaide but cannot seem to find anything cheaper than 2200 pp biz class which is from Oslo. Dates are flexible from start of December 2019 until start of January 2020. Here is the example I found. Any advice would be appreciated.

2200 per person in business class seems very cheap. How much cheaper did you expect it to be?

Unfortunately we cannot see your example, but i don't think you'll do much better.

Adelaide has fairly limited competition for international arrivals so you could consider pricing into Sydney or Melbourne and booking a separate domestic flight, which may reduce the overall cost (possibly)

I reckon! I'm not sure I'd be game to fly on an airline that was much cheaper.

From posts in the BA forum, where many like ex Eu trips to Au that, seems like a good price. On QR? You are getting towards a busy time for travel to Au, but when business travellers (paid by employers) will be travelling less. So can be OK for paid business class tickets

Anyway do not only consider price. Look at departure times, transits, arrival time and overall travel time.
And as this is FT, earnings to a frequent flyer program.

Im sure I saw a post from ARN for 1500 and the MA sale was quoting a similar figure in January. The example is BA to LON then CP to ADL

Was this 1500 sale in December/January?

Dec 15-Jan 15 is high season to Australia, very difficult to find sales in general (although not sure about this route).

Either way, wow, 1500 is super cheap.
