o. m. g.

just put my dates in and it returned a result of $656 euros = $896.79 aud approx per person, or a total cost of 1311.94 euros = $1792 aud - flying with qantas instead of vaustralia...

and crap. just checked our tickets and they are non-refundable. so i guess i'm stuck with the $2500 aud i paid for our vaustralia flights. gah. this better be some awesome flight then ... not happy jan

I drink enough coffee as it is, clowns are much healthier! Fingers crossed it's 100% legit and no scamming involved (had an awful thought it would be dodgy but everything seems to be smooth sailing so far?) Enjoy the planning!

Oh bummer! Missed it! Early bird catches the worm and as I'm clearly a snail, I missed it

Oh well, thanks for sharing.

Congrats Karen on your awesome deal!

Miss Potatohead and all other "bargain flight hunters". How do you find these amazing deals. I clearly am such an amateur. I look at Best Flights and occasionally Expedia but that's about it. I would like to be more "hip and jiggy" and on the "down low" with where the cheap deals are being offered please.
