Cheap for sure, though FYI it's Autumn / Winter timing, so weather is on par with UK and cooling, just as we warm up...

Melbourne maybe. Brisbane will be nice and warm in the day and "cool" in the evening with little humidity, which I think most would prefer
Queensland is still pretty warm this time of year, Brisbane itself doesn't really offer a great deal but you could fly up to Cairns and then from there it's possible to get free camper vans that they want taking back down to Brisbane. Internal flights in Australia are dirt cheap if you use Tigerair so you can even get a trip in to Sydney or Melbourne.
Cracking offer!!!!! Would be great to watch an NRL game. Hot

Oz is a massive place so that's not true to all places! We visited Australia in July/August 2013. Melbourne was about 10C, Sydney between 17C-23C, and Port Douglas (Cairns) 30C.

We got a free camper van from Melbourne to Sydney - nice drive up the coast for a couple of days.
Has anyone here flown economy to Australia? How did you find it? Seriously considering going this year but dreading the 22hr flight time there in cramped seats and no sleep. Weighing up if it's worth spending a bit more and going for economy premium instead.

Yes, and it was fine. Was with Cathay Pacific and Singapore. I'm 6ft 1.

Went to Melbourne from London a few years back using Royal Brunei. Although the 1st leg is stated as 16 hours in reality it's 7 hours to Dubai then you get off walk through the terminal ( about 1 hour stopover) back to the gate then get back onto the same plane (same seat) to Brunei where you change planes. However if the flight is late departing London you sit in your seat at Dubai as they clean round you and some people get off at Dubai. If this happens it's a VERY long and tiring flight.

We were a party of 6 and 1 of us had no TV for 16 hours so we kept rotating. Overall RB were ok but nothing special. If I ever went back though I would look for at least a 1 day stopover somewhere to try and break the flight up a bit or pay for an upgrade if you can afford it.

There are loads of services that offer free rentals in exchange for you transporting the vehicle to another city. Some even give a fuel allowance. Just google free car or camper rentals australia and take your pick.

Yep, twice. I'm 6' and it's manageable. You can get some sleep in and you'll want to get up and walk around a few times.

Best advice is take your shoes and socks off so make sure they don't smell for others sake.

I flew with Singapore airlines and would never go economy again, unless you can get the front row with a little more room. 14 hours direct to Singapore never again unless through premium economy
Ive done the flight to OZ / NZ five times, all economy, three times with two kids at various ages between 7mths and 7yrs, the flight is certainly not a joyous event but its perfectly manageable, my husband is 6'2 and as long as you don't get a total knob in the seat in front its fine, its not going to kill you so you put on your big boy pants and get on with it. In saying that I wouldn't consider a budget airline like China Southern / Air Asia etc no point asking for misery!

It's really not that bad. I flew economy Manchester -> Perth and back 4 times in an 18 month period. Every time was with Qatar with a 90 min stopover in Doha... even a short break like that is enough to break the monotony. I'm 6ft and on the chubby side but just made sure I stretched my legs every hour or so. But as kiwigirl says above, hope you don't get an inconsiderate sod in front or behind.

Actually I've just remembered I paid for extra leg space on one of my trips (first leg Perth -> Doha only). Not sure it was worth the extra $137 AUD, especially when some guy with a broken seat screen got moved next to me free of charge about 10 mins into the flight :-)

So yeah, don't worry about it. Stock up on music, books or video and it passes quicker than you'd think.
Awesome deal. Gives me some reassurances about not paying over the odds for flights to Brisbane in September. They currently are coming out at £800 which I feel is far too high and am waiting.
Is this site reliable to book tickets?

Is this site reliable to book tickets?



Momodo is an online search engine and is reliable.

With this in mind, it's important to note the tickets are booked via the airline or an online travel agent, so use one you feel comfortable with or book direct with the airline and claim cashback.
I fancy a night out at the Woolshed in Cairns. Better get it booked. I loved living there for 6 months.
Very good price indeed
I thought I got the deal of the decade £499 Manchester to Sydney in March a few years ago with STA travel flying Emirates.
Good to see those prices knocking around again.
I've flown using malaysia air back in the year 2001 and found the whole thing effortless. i'm 6 foot and played super mario on the seatback console for 8 hours solid. sat next to a nice bloke from formula 1 team for jordan racing. (oh, and my mum too). no problems with comfort. long supply of fosters beers. Thanks for the memories!
Wouldn't fly Royal Brunei if you paid me. BA on the other hand...

I imagine this is going to be down to the individual being a glass half full or empty kinda person. We did the journey with 2 kids and were fine.I mean you're flying to Australia so that keeps you going! Regular food and drink, with no washing/tidying up, watched a load of movies and got a bit of sleep here and there. What's not to like?

We flew Singapore Airlines on the hottest deal i have ever had from this site back in 2010....£440 a ticket!! That would have kept me smiling to the moon!!! Happy days


Edited by: "hotyoda" 31st Mar 2016
I agree with many of the above posters....if you are getting a hot deal like this, possibly saving £3-500 per person, then I'm sure you would accept a little less comfort, if it was an issue for you.
If I was booking, the saving would allow me to either buy direct from an airline or from a more reputable reseller (please read reviews before you book from one).
Re: Economy for long flight im worried - Man up and get on with it.

Ive done the trip via HK and its fine, few glasses of wine and watching films helps pass the time.

But surely as someone smart enough to be a teacher, you will have known about this beforehand (or perhaps you were blinded by the offer of a long absence from work?!)

I didn't say it was a surprise, but just that it is a con. I'm a new graduate and I've only now chosen teaching Physics over other higher paid sales roles - because I hope to do meaningful work, not because of the holidays.
