How good are these Qantas USA fares?
- Price: Great. These are very near the cheapest flights to North America we've seen Qantas has launched this year. They are beaten only by these $998 return flights. At $1 difference, it's nothing to cry over.
- Airline: Great. Qantas is the creme-de-la-creme of Australian airlines. It's quite literally the best in the Pacific/Australia region and one we've personally tried, tested and approved. You'll get meals, entertainment and two bags of checked luggage. Because you'll be doing that much shopping with all the money you've saved from this sale.
- Frequent flyer points: Great. You'll earn at least 9,000 Qantas Frequent Flyer points and 90 status credit points on your return flight.
- Travel time: Great. Flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco are direct. Flights to Chicago and New York include a stopover.
- Weather: Good. You can take in those beautiful summer days for under $1,000. But beware, Christmas dates are excluded, as are some early summer dates between 15 June and 15 July.
