UL/QF - CMB-AKL in J for 1.540 USD

Hi everybody,

I was just looking for my flights to New Zealand in June / July and I found very affordable business class rates on my usual (German) flight search engine Momondo.de
Total flight times are only 23 / 21 hours with stops in Singapure and Melbourne (CMB-SIN-CMB operated by Sri Lankan Airlines and the rest by Qantas.

Have a good weekend,
Tina

thanks flyingtina! Nice deal
can you share the full routing that you found to AKL?
Is this a QF fare or UL?

Sure, here's what I intend to book:

15 JUN 7.30am CMB - SIN UL302 (layover 6h10m)
15 JUN 8.15pm SIN- MEL QF36 (layover 2h10m)
16 JUN 7.45am MEL- AKL QF153
---
14 JUL 7.10am AKL-MEL QF 152 (layover 2h30m)
14 JUL 11.55am MEL-SIN QF 35 (layover 2h10m)
14 JUL 8.05pm SIN- CMB UL 309

As it's directing you to a third party website I can't tell which fare it is, can I?

Edit: Just saw: for only 200€ more you can shorten the return by one stop and almost 5 hours. Transit will be in MEL, from there direct flight to CMB.

Hi Tina and thanks for posting

This deal is kind of ongoing on a permanent basis for some years now, it goes away for sometimes but this UL fare always comes back on this route.

By looking at the link provided I can see it coded as UL CMB-SIN, QF SIN-AKL ( Via MEL)

AKL is available for $1 more...


Also seeing for $1700 just one stop with MH to AKL, but this flight with QF Flight numbers and metal can be attractive for QF SC hunters

Indeed, but still seems possible. See post 6 (paragraph 1) upthread.

Even if not a brand new fare, it's popping up on my screen at a very convenient time. Thanks to OP for head-up

i didnt re-read the fare rules but if itís the same as usual yes, I use this fare a few times, often stopping in Singapore, I have been able to purchase the QF version only by using the call center it just never seems to price out on their web site.

I think i have done this route in the past (three years ago?). I think it was slightly more expensive, although was bought from an OTA that had a booking fee and likely additional carrier charges?
one way CMB-SIN-SYD-WLG was once around $1000NZD and RT around $1600NZD from memory...
