CI : SYD -> JFK - A$4,250/$3,194USD in J

Found this deal on flights which is a bit of a discount off the standard J fares found between east coast US and Australia. Quite a bit of availability on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for this fare for the next couple of months:

Deal seems to work only in one direction (SYD to JFK). There's a bit of a layover in TPE on the outbound (couldn't seem to find an itinerary with a shorter layover). Fortunately the layover on the return is much shorter.

Safe Travels,

James

Well this certainly isnt a mistake fare, 4k AUD Is a very achievable business class fare to the USA from Australia.

eg If you don't fancy the detour/long layover in Taipei, Air NZ has a J sale currently between Australia and the US, NZ flies to LAX, SFO & Houston. From SYD/BNE/MEL/OOL the return fare to LAX/SFO is 4,444.00 AUD, to IAH 4,822.00 and open-jaw also possible SYD-IAH/LAX-SYD at 4,583.00
for example

Over Xmas it goes up about 25%, still reasonable

Likely explains why CI is matching fares but for the east coast.

Having flown last year in NZ from YVR to AKL I can attest that the Kiwis have a quality product! The mattress and duvet provided make for a comfortable experience.

Safe Travels,

James
