For SFO-SYD, December and January are by far the most expensive months. Over the last 15 years I've never heard of a $1400 UAL fare during those months.

I arrived FRA from SFO November '12 and there was the bus.
Waiting to board in the chilly drizzle were a number of people in shorts and tee-shirts.

As for me, the only way I would buy an F ticket would be if I were using money I would never miss or someone else's money. In either case, I wouldn't give a fig how much my neighbor was paying.

Cable Ties!

I use my UAL-supplied luggage tags but I attach them to the bags using those brightly colored plastic cable ties. Hard to break.

Hmmm, I also use cable ties for my key chain.

Nerd alert?

Lotsa SFO-SYD RT Saver Awards Early Feb

FYI

Just now I gave date range 2-Feb to 13-Feb and "Flexible Dates" search produced a grid with nothing but 80K savers!

Very tempting.

In '97 I found myself in Munich on a Y2K project (contract). Amdahl Deutschland was monthly flying me home MUC-SFO on LH for R&R. I guess all those miles have been added in to my total now.
