    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!

    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?:scratchin

    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 :goodvibes

    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 :(
