All alliances Vancouver to Australia $820 USD to $1044 June and July departures

This is a good day to buy airline tickets to Australia with Qantas where I found a fare of $993 CAD = $819 USD round trip. Air New Zealand posted fares of $987 to $993 USD to Sydney and Melbourne. Delta and United are about $50 more at $1,044 for a few dates in June and July 2015. These fares are around $450 to $600 lower than flights from the USA.

Canadian Travel Hacking posted this fare yesterday for Qantas. Today the Air New Zealand fare is slightly lower than Qantas. The AAdvantage of Qantas is nonstop flights and 25% AA flight miles and 0.5 EQP for Qantas booking class O. Even better, as reader Andy points out in the comments, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan earns 100% flight miles for Qantas O booking class.

  2. I noticed when checking this fare again that you are allowed a free stopover. I was able to price a YVR-MEL ticket with stopover in Sydney in July 2015 for $1,025 CAD online using Qantas multi-city search.
    Brisbane is also available for same fare YVR-SYD-BNE for a free city with stopover in Sydney.
