BNE/SYD/MEL to LAX $850 return :O

A friend posted this on facebook - couldn't believe my eyes.

Seems a bit dodgy at first but people have said it's working for them...either way I can't travel in those periods because of uni/work but I thought I'd pop it over here just incase someone was interested!

Probably should have tried before I posted! I too just had a play around and none of these cheap fares came up until February...still, so so tempting

AARRGGHH I can get all the way to Orlando and back, on the same dates, for $1400 instead of the $2000 I have already paid. Plus I would have to pay $200 cancellation fee and use points for the CBR - SYD bit.
is it worth changing for $400 + points?

Ramada main gate has just been refurbed, my mum stayed at Howard Johnson wasn't too impressed, we'll be staying at Fairfield inn in October, good location, gets pretty good reviews.

You must eat at Ralph Brennan's in DTD
