How good are these fares?

  • Price: Good. Flights to the USA on Virgin Australia generally hit $980+, making this one of the better steals of the year with the airline. Compared to other sales running around today, you can do better. For example, STA Travel has a sale on United flights into the US from $749 return though this is on limited routes and on sale only for today. Qantas also has a sale through Flight Centre with flights from $949 return which is for similar dates, although excludes April and May travel and ends on 8 July.
  • Airline: Great. Virgin Australia is a full-service airline and all checked luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment are included. You can also earn Velocity Points and status credits with your fare.
  • Travel time: Great. Flights to Los Angeles are direct making them the fastest route possible. Flights to other American cities are indirect, though this is standard, and include minimal stopovers.
  • Weather: Good. While summer dates aren't included, autumn and spring dates are which are ideal for weather, crowds and keeping to your budget.
