Take your upcoming work trips in style thanks to Qantas's latest business class sale.

Business class fares around Australia have been slashed as part of the last day of Qantas's "Around the World in 8 Days" Sale.

  • Sydney to Melbourne from $549 one way
  • Brisbane to Sydney from $499 one way
  • Brisbane to Melbourne from $599 one way
  • Gold Coast to Sydney from $549 one way
  • Sydney to Perth from $1,299 one way

Some of these routes, including Sydney to Melbourne and Sydney to Perth, even fly on Qantas's Airbus A330, which means lie-flat seats!

The eligible travel dates for this sale are fairly flexible with dates ranging from October 2019 to June 2020.

You can search for flights and compare prices for this sale on Skyscanner, but be quick as the sale ends tonight at 11:59pm AEST.

What are the best business class seats available through this sale?

Qantas has a number of different business class seats on domestic routes. On the more glamorous side of the spectrum is the excellent Business Suite. These seats are found on Qantas's Airbus A330s flying routes such as the aforementioned Sydney to Perth. On the other side of the spectrum, there's the rather compact Boeing 717 operated by QantasLink on regional routes.

Boeing 717

The Boeing 717 is used by QantasLink for shorter regional routes. Business class flyers receive better meals and beverages plus access to Qantas's network of domestic airport lounges before departure.

Boeing 737

Qantas uses Boeing 737s for most domestic routes, including the ultra-popular Melbourne to Sydney route. This business class experience features better meals and beverages compared with economy class, access to domestic business class lounges and a leather seat with more legroom and width.
