VERY HOT PRICES - STA Travel New York promo. Flights ex Perth, Mel, Syd, Bris, Adelaide to New York on Qantas.
STA travel have put flights to New York on Qantas, Delta and United on sale. The prices arent too bad. Melbourne to New York on Qantas is $500 off normal prices. The list of flights and prices on the linked page are broken down into flights for students and then flights anyone can get. I've priced up the 'everyone' tickets and the prices are pretty good. I've also not priced Delta or United as though cheap they're more like flying Easyjet for 28 hours which constitutes torture not travel.
You need to book today as its a flash sale unless your ok with Delta and United which close out on the 21st. Your travel needs to depart between the 13th of May and 11th of June 2013.
As usual they make this pretty convoluted to see. I couldnt get the correct price to show off a straight search on the STA engine but using the +/- 3 Day option got me the correct pricing.
Price wise I tested flights for the following dates. Departing on the 20/05/2013 returning on the 14/08/2013
Melbourne (MEL) to New York (JFK). Usual Qantas price is around $2800 - sale price is $1428-$1450
Sydney (SYD) to New York (JFK). Usual price $2800 sale price $1428 direct
Adelaide (ADL) to New York (JFK). Usually $3000 ish. Sale price $1706
Brisbane (BNE) to New York (JFK). Usually $2800 ish. Sale price $1437
Perth (PER) to New York (JFK). Usually $3300. Sale price $1740.
Altogether they are very good prices for Qantas flights. You can get cheaper if your flying other airlines if you're not a Qantas person.
