How good are these fares?

In the best of times, we've seen fares to South America drop under $999 return, though more often than not whenever the price hits the early $1,000s you're looking at a bargain. All fares are full-service, so there's no need to consider adding baggage or meal costs and flights with LATAM are generally direct or include one-stopover, which is minimal and means you'll arrive that much faster than other options.

Compared with other sales currently running, Air New Zealand has a competitive sale on Buenos Aires flights only. These are for similar dates and start from $1,157 return from the Gold Coast (which LATAM doesn't fly out of). Like-for-like, it's still offering the better deal with flights from Sydney at $1,187 and from Melbourne at $1,171 return. You can find out more here.

For all other destinations, you'll be hard-pressed to find any better during this travel period.
