I bought my fare in a Qantas sale and it is still cheaper than the current sale but it is the most expensive fare I have ever paid!
I am watching for a better sale and hoping a lower price will make paying the change fee worth it

I haven't got my tickets yet

Still waiting for a deal with either V or Qantas.

I am living on the edge

Sugarglider - or anyone else who knows...

Can you explain to me a bit about the "change fee" and how it all works?

Just looked ours are about $200 PP more. Would be surprised if they were cheaper than what we got, not impossible I know but flying from Canberra is expensive so I think we got an awesome deal. Ours were with V and I paid extra to choose seats, was only $160 for the 4 of us, even with paying that our flights were around the $1500 Canberra, Melbourne, LA.

Hi Ms. Shuttergirl. You can change the fare - it all depends on how much a fee you pay and how far in advance you do it.
I reckon Qantas will have a half decent sale by/in August - I have no idea why - I just feel it in my waters. If the sale price + change fee is cheaper than the current price I have paid it is worth it. Or it may be that I change my route to get better timings.
For Qantas, you could pay $0, $60, $80, $200 and perhaps a telephone service fee ($60 or $80) and perhaps a credit card processing fee. It all depends on the type of fare you bought ($0 for flexible fares, $200 for the ultra cheap sales).

Sugarglider - thanks for the run down on that. I didn't realise you could make changes so that's good to know.

I've just checked flights yesterday because you all had me curious and I'm still ahead of the game price wise at around $250 per flight x4 so all good but I think I won't check again, unless one of you guys gets me all excited about a sale, then I might check again

Yes - Ms. SG I think you and I bought our tickets around the same time / same sale. although it wasn't much of a sale. Still it was better than the current prices. I'll be surprised if a deeper sale doesn't come along - but then again I know nothing. I just make it all up.
